What We Ate in NYC

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Usually the blog is in “real time” but I ‘m back in Pittsburgh as of Sunday night. Still have some New York photos to post even though I am not there.

Food slideshow. What my sister and I consumed last week when I visited her during my Spring Break.


NYC Afternoon

 

Corey is filming his cousin Michael and his brother Justin is resting up for his ride.  Watched this effort for awhile.  They used to skateboard.  I talked to them and asked if I could put them on the blog.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Lunchtime

Lunchtime lately has been from the students’ cooking at the Carrick Cafe.  You’ll see a couple of orders in takeout boxes and containers below. I thought this week’s challenge a fun one to create.

WordPress is hoping for some “offbeat interpretations, mouthwatering photos”.  The photos are supposed to be taken with a phone.  I got that about half right. Once I started searching I had to just stop as there were too too many images of meals consumed at lunchtime!

I think of lunchtime as a short time, dictated by bells.  Here is a lunchtime medley from the archives.  Some shots I probably would not have blogged before.

And from the online etymology dictionary 

lunch (n.) “mid-day repast,” 1786, shortened form of luncheon (q.v.). The verb meaning “to take to lunch” (said to be from the noun) also is attested from 1786:

But as late as 1817 the only definition of lunch in Webster’s is “a large piece of food.” OED says in 1820s the word “was regarded either as a vulgarism, or as a fashionable affectation.” Related: Lunched; lunching. Lunch money is attested from 1868; lunch-time (n.) is from 1821; lunch hour is from 1840. Slang phrase out to lunch “insane, stupid, clueless” first recorded 1955, on notion of being “not there.” Old English had nonmete “afternoon meal,” literally “noon-mea

Bleecker Street Sign

Another urban shot from last week in NYC.  I was walking by this scene and had to photograph it.

It’s a cash only, no slices, no reservations, coal oven pizza place but I won’t add their name cause I am sure this is not their best look.  The restaurant grading system is prominently displayed in every window in the city.

And if you liked my Positivity Helps shot from the Urban Challenge, the challenge creator, Terence S. Jones, has added it to his collection of urban images.  You can go onto his blog here and click the heart button on the photo. Thanks.


Andrew Tosses the Pizza Dough in the Air

He can’t remember how long it took him to learn to do this.  I was impressed with the height and ease in which he tossed the dough.  We had parent conferences until seven  PM so got to go out to lunch.  I headed down to the South Side to the bank and stopped in the Blue Grotto Pizza shop on the corner of 19th and Carson.  Thom B came by.  Told me, “…they really care about their food which is a good thing.” I waited for a slice of Pizza Margherita and you can see by Andrew’s hand that the slice was ENORMOUS!. It was also delicious. It was when I was leaving that I saw his tossing the dough and photographed his expertise.  I asked if it was okay to blog and he said, “Sure.”  Would have been good to have a tripod and cable remote but the soft capture still conveys the story of his skill.   A rhythmic series of the pizza dough tossing is an idea for a future post.  Could be in the People at Work series, too.
