Fridays Fave Five


It’s that time again. Time to look back and remember some favorite things from this past week. The collage is not in order but here goes my 5.

1. On Saturday I woke up early to rain and thunder here in Southern California. When the sun was beginning to rise I stepped out of the condo and look what I saw. It was a fabulous sunrise and I’m thankful that I saw it.

2. On Sunday we drove South across L.A. to a Nifty Fifty Birthday party. On the way Dear and I stopped at Jerry’s Famous Deli in Woodland Hills to eat. I love that we have great Jewish Delicatessen’s here in Southern California.

3. It was fun to see old family and family friends. My cousin Tanya turned 50 and we attended a Birthday Dessert in her honor. The Families represented in the photo of the ladies have history together way back to Iran and Russia. It was great to talk and enjoy each other.

4. I popped into Goodwill this week (surprise, surprise) and I spotted this great blue and white creamer that was calling my name. I really like creamers and I like blue and white. This little pretty cost me $2.95.

5. I’m having an Fall Open House on Saturday. I decided to try a new dessert to serve. The recipe says to make it two days ahead so the flavors can moosh (they didn’t say moosh but you get the idea) I like how it turned out and I’ll post the recipe next week. There are lots of detail to type out. It’s a Pumpkin Praline Trifle. So if you live in Southern California you might want to pop on over on Saturday.

For more Fave Five’s visit Susanne at Living to Tell the Story.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and demanding a ransom for me to access them. I’m slowly cleaning up many of my posts where PB have added ugly black and grey boxes where my photos used to be. So frustrating!

  1. I never, ever wished I lived in California until I got to know you, Ellen. Now there are moments almost every week when I think it would be kind of nice to live there. Coming over to your Open House would be an excellent reason to live in California.

  2. Ellen – you always have such great family get-togethers – what a blessing!

    I have a little creamer that is very similar only it is brown and white – it belonged to Roger’s grandfather.

    I hope you post the recipe for that Pumpkin Praline Trifle. It sounds so good. I’d like a piece right now. I’d probably have to walk to California to make up for the calories 🙂

    Hope you have a great Fall Open House.


  3. I love all the family things that you guys do. They always look like such fun! And if I lived in California I certainly would be dropping by for a visit and a taste of that dessert! :v)

    Beautiful sunrise!

  4. Hey, that invitation is sounding pretty good! We only got a tiny bit fo thunder but it was a treat to see the dramatic skies. Wish I could have photographed that magnificent rainbow I saw on the way to work.

  5. Oh, it’s me again — it’s so interesting we have the some of the same pewter serving pieces. You think I might be somehow related to you too? 😉 Just kidding — we are sort of related, through the blood of Christ.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Nifty Fifty — I like that. Too bad my husband and I are past our 50th birthdays! Maybe I can use it for someone else some time. It’s much better than black decorations and “over the hill” signs. What a gorgeous sunrise! That is a cute creamer and a yummy sounding dessert.

  7. I love trifles, Ellen…they are so easy to put together and yummy, too. I’ll be looking for the recipe. Great fave five!

  8. Jerry’s Famous Deli – a favorite of ours too. We go to the one in Costa Mesa…they have the best curly fries, and pastrami Reuben sandwiches…mmmmmm.
