Quick Bite: Italian Sausage

When I was in High School and College, I loved wandering the street fairs every summer. I didn’t care that, except The Antic, they were all the same and rarely represented any aspect of the block of the neighborhood they were in. I wasn’t particular.
I liked the gathering of people and, of course, I loved the food. The highlight for me was always the Italian Sausage stands. I could have Hot or Sweet, but always covered in a mountain of peppers and onions. For the life of me, I can never find one nearly as good in a store. Most pizza shops that sell sausage heroes, just don’t have the flavor or the nice char from the griddle.
Last week, I passed by one of these fairs, probably one of the last of the season, and right on the corner was a sausage stand. I had to have one for old-time sake.
I just have to add a note of photo-geekery here. The pic is one of my analog shots, that I took on a roll of Fuji Velvia slide film. Check out the way the colors just glow out of the shot. I can practically smell the onions just by looking at it.
