Do You Know the Way to San Jose…

Do you remember this great oldie from Burt Bacharach? Dear and I fly to San Jose today and I hope to eat some Mexican Food somewhere on the way to a wedding we’re going to in Mt. Hermon.

When we were on our trip to Eastern Washington we had lunch at a Mexican Restaurant in Colville and then we had dinner at a restaurant in Wenatchee that had some Russian food on their menu.


We had some of our Mexican favorites and then some Russian favorites,  Spinach Borsch, Pelemeny, Vareniki and stuffed cabbage which BTW my mother makes a whole lot better then this restaurant did.  I think I’ve finally figured out why these foods are my all time favorites…duh. I was born in East Los Angeles and lived in a Immigrant Russian household within a Mexican neighborhood.  Makes sense that I learned to enjoy these foods and they have become my comfort food.

I’ll be away from a computer till we get back on Sunday so I won’t be posting my hymn for Sunday this week. Hope you all have a great weekend!!

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. I’ve just had a great catch-up on your recent posts. I loved the views of the cemetery – I’m attracted to these, especially pioneer cemeteries.
    Aren’t we lucky to have been exposed to so many different cuisines? Your love of Mexican and Russian mirrors my love of Middle Eastern and Maritime – lobster rolls and tabbouleh anyone?

  2. Looks wonderful. I have no such excuse for my love of ethnic foods….I’m willing to try all kinds but I could have Mexican everyday! Hope your weekend is as full of joy as your anticipation of it all.

  3. Doesn’t it make life so much more interesting and enjoyable to have all these cultural influences in one’s life….I love that about So Cal.

  4. Oh, such food, Ellen… I could reach a fork into these photos! What a combo Mexican & Russian…mmm… Thank you so much for sharing, this is fun! Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

  5. Looking forward to a few SJ pictures. I haven’t been there since 1997, the year we lived in Almenden and I worked at an elementary school in Los Gatos. It is a wonderful place to visit!
