New York Monday #24 – Some pizza

May 15, 2006 | Filed Under New York Monday | Leave a Comment 

A typical NYC pizza place. What kind of slice would you like — one with vegetables like brocolli or one with meat like salami or pepperoni? Or would you prefer a plain slice — just cheese? Take your pick.

Have a good week, everyone!

The tulip is a type of flowering plant in the Lily Family (Liliaceae).

Although not native to the Netherlands, tulips are closely associated with that country. Instead, tulips are native to southern Europe, north Africa, Asia (Anatolia, Iran, northeast China and Japan).

To read more about the tulip, go here and here.

It’s Mother’s Day in the U.S. and some other parts of the world. I want to wish all mothers, mothers-to-be, and all women, everywhere, a Happy Mother’s Day!

Best,
Paz

The title reads ‘Mashed Avocado on Toasted Bread.’ However in my case, it’s ‘Mashed Avocado on Toasted Bagels.Isil from Veggie Way made this simple meal, which grabbed my attention immediately — especially since I had two ripe avocados waiting to be eaten. She didn’t give specific quantity ingredient instructions, but it’s easy to guess: Basically, you mash an avocado, add some lemon juice, a few drops of olive oil, chopped greens (like parsley or dill), and salt to taste. Mix and then spread the mashed avocado over toasted bread. Isil also adds that if you have any leftovers, you can add it to your next salad meal. Not bad. Not bad at all! Thanks, Isil.

Have a great week!

Cooking Diva and El Amor por la Cocina are hosting an event called the Farmer’s Market International Parade. This is my submission.You are asked to blog about the market where you like to shop (or wherever you buy your food). "It could be any kind of market: fish market, meat market, fruits and veggies market, supermarkets, even handcrafts market if they create cooking tools and plates, for example."

Here are the complete guidelines in English and in Spanish.

I shop at several different grocery stores, in my neighborhood, for different food products. However, when I buy fish, I usually go to Citarella, a food store that has branches all over the city. I have mentioned Citarella before, here. In addition to fish, they sell meats and a few other grocery products fruits, vegetables, baked goods, chocolates, cheeses, etc… They have even started to sell flowers, which you see when you first walk into the store.

I like that the fish sold at Citarella is fresh and clean and I haven’t had any problems with what they sell to me, so far.

When I walked into the store, I started to take photos. A few minutes later, one of the staff members came to me and told me that I wasn’t allowed to take photos. I said okay but when he left me, I took a few more photos. Oh, what I go through and risk for my blog and my readers! ;-)

Here are a few photos of what one may find at Citarella’s.

So, where do you do your grocery shopping? Blog about it and let Cooking Diva know.

Paz
