The Astounding She-Monster

…and I am astounded at what I will sit through.

Amazon’s Prime Video appears to be the gift that keeps on giving. They seem to be topping off their video offerings with a lot of classic movies that I was wishing that Netflix would add until I gave up caring about Netflix. They are also overstocking their bargain basement with some remarkable schlock that I haven’t seen since the late, great Doctor Shock ruled Saturday afternoons in the broadcast regions around Philadelphia, PA. Such is the case with The Astounding She-Monster. Continue reading

Baked Pork Chops with Cranberries

Broad Street Subway Substation No. 7

Subway Substation No. 7I spied this hidden gem as I was walking South on Broad Street. This architectural beauty dates from 1929 and is located at 408-10 S. Juniper Street. Juniper runs parallel to Broad Street, and I shot this from a parking lot.

I was playing with a new-to-me DSLR and will have to head back there when I get a wide-angle lens.

Potatoes Anna

When the weather turns cool, nothing makes The Boy happier than a roast chicken with baked potatoes and carrots. Last week, I decided to make Potatoes Anna – thin sliced potatoes, brushed with butter, layered in a skillet, and baked until golden. The beauty of this dish is that it can be made ahead, then reheated covered with foil in a 350º oven for 20 minutes or even in the microwave. It’s delicious and Boy approved!  Continue reading
