BZMaestro Eats: Food, travel, and a little miscellaneous
One of the reasons I went with a cheesesteak instead of pasta Saturday at Johnny Paisano’s was my plan to spend Sunday making red gravy with sausage. I tend to make fairly large batches of Sunday Gravy and eat it over pasta on a nearly nightly basis until it’s gone. And I was extra psychedContinue reading “Stepping Up My Sunday Gravy Game with Pork Neck Bones”
My regular readers may recall that I’ve already posted about Johnny Paisano’s, a casual yet charming Italian restaurant in my area. That earlier report was on lunch with a friend. I returned to Johnny’s with my wife’s family for an early Saturday dinner to celebrate her birthday and also – belatedly – Mother’s Day. WeContinue reading “Back to Johnny Paisano’s for a Family Dinner”
I was somewhat surprised when my wife requested that we go bowling and out to lunch for her birthday – at least the bowling part was surprising. That’s an activity I would normally suggest. But when my wife says, “Let’s go bowling, Dude,” I’m not about to refuse; especially on her birthday. So we returnedContinue reading “Lunch and Bowling for My Wife’s Birthday”
The two smiling faces in the above photo belong to NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, and Finnish Prime Minister, Sanna Marin, the latter having announced Finland’s intention to join NATO as quickly as possible. Swedish leadership has since made a similar announcement.. Of course, this latest round of NATO expansion and Finland’s – as wellContinue reading “On NATO Expansion and Revised American Strategy for Ukraine War”
I normally plan my cheesesteak outings anywhere from a few days to a week in advance – sometimes longer if a friend is joining me. But I went on a spur of the moment jaunt for a steak today. The chain of events that led to this bout of spontaneity began with the dinner weContinue reading “LaSpada’s Original Steaks & Hoagies on MacDade Boulevard”
I’ve posted a few times on Delco Steaks. One of their several locations is only about 10 minutes from me, and they’re very good. But there is another, unrelated place further west in Chadds Ford, Delaware County, PA, called Delco’s Original Steaks & Hoagies. Their steaks get some tremendous raves on Facebook. They also hadContinue reading “A Beast of a Sandwich: Delco’s Original”
While struggling a bit with what subject I should address in a new Top Ten list, it occurred to me that since I’ve already posted on my ten favorite films, I may as well move over to the small screen and address TV shows. These are not my picks for the ten best shows ever;Continue reading “My Ten Favorite TV Shows”
South Philadelphia has more classic-looking cheesesteak stands and is more associated with the sandwich than any other part of the city. While most of the well-known steak shops in other neighborhoods, as well as those in the suburbs, have indoor service, South Philly specializes in walk up stands, where customers order at a window whileContinue reading “A New Old-School Steak Stand in South Philly”
My last post was on a sandwich known to be loved by The King. Today, I’m moving down the line of succession to the Prince; the simple title used by some devotees of Steve’s Prince of Steaks. I was one of those fans of the Prince for a fairly long time. In fact, their steaksContinue reading “The Prince Still Reigns”
Elvis Presley was the king of both Rock ‘n Roll and late-night sandwiches. It’s long been well known that his favorite snack was peanut butter and banana sandwiches grilled in copious amounts of butter. This delicacy also happens to be right up my alley, so I make it periodically, including today. I used to imagineContinue reading “God Bless The King”
