Here are a few photos shot a few years ago in Washington Park in New York that are emblematic of summer in the big city. The camera was the Panasonic LX-3.

The death of main street USA has been a slow process that has accelerated in recent years and has has almost run its course. It's not where the products are made but where they are sold. We do not engage i9n polemics in this blog but it is sad to see this inevitable development. This is a recent photo shot in Scranton, PA. Stores are closed and the streets are deserted. The feeling is lugubrious, at best.
This is still a photo blog but I cannot helping photographing dishes that I cook especially if they are healthful and easy to make. This is a Sicilian cauliflower base pasta gets it's name from the way it's prepared. It may be made simpler or more complex but either way it's delicious. The recipe can be gotten on line easily. It is similar to the one using broccoli. I just love this shot made with very simple kitchen available light.

In these times of GMO's, processed fast foods and all sort of junk foods, it is comforting to know that healthful and delicious food is really very simple. This example of spaghetti con broccoli fritti or spaghetti with fried broccoli makes the point. Part boil the florets, remove and in the same water cook the pasta. In a large skillet put EVO, a dash of peperoncino, the florets and Sicilian sea salt. Saute and add the al dente spaghetti. Stir in some plain bread crumbs and a dash g parmigiano. Tuttu fatto e buon appetito.
