Huntington Beach

On Thursday the 25th of May my sister Vera and I had a walk in Huntington Beach and on the pier.

It was fun to see the pelicans. They look so prehistoric, don’t they?

We took the obligatory selfie.

On Friday Kathy joined Vera and me in Huntington Beach for a sister morning. We had breakfast and did some shopping together.Our youngest sister, Lana, is traveling in Scotland right now.

Before Kathy left we took another sister selfie.

On Saturday we are going to have another family gathering with more of our family at my sister Vera’s. It will be nice to see two of my brothers and my sister-in-laws. Vera and I will be baking again on Saturday morning because our dear old pop told us it would be good if we baked another roolyet (nut roll) for our family gathering.

I’ll be posting the recipe of this family favorite on the Mennonite Girls Can Cook on the 31st of May.

Hope you are having a good long weekend and can pause to remember those who have fallen in service to our country.

  1. What a wonderful sister-time! So glad you all can get together.

    By the way, this is twice this week I’ve run across pelican pictures on a blog!

  2. Hello Ellen, I love the sisters selfies. Great photos of lovely ladies. The beach looks like a fun time. Love the Pelican! The nut roll looks yummy! Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and the new week ahead! Happy Memorial Day!

  3. Looks like you are having a wonderful time with 2 of your sisters. You can sure see you are from the same family through your lovely smiles.

  4. I’m definitely going to look out for that recipe tomorrow! I love the idea of Sisters day. I have but one brother and I don’t think he’d want to spend a whole day just with me! I wonder, Ellen, would you think of blogging about the Mennonite life, for those of us new to but adoring of your blog? Have a lovely week x

    • thank you. I’ll add a link here where you can read posts from the other 9 “girls” who are part of the Mennonite Girls Can Cook Blog. They all come from Mennonite backgrounds. I’m the one “girl” who is Russian but not Mennonite. We have some of the same food history and that is what brought me to the group. They adopted me in even though I am not Mennonite. Long and good story. On the page that this link will take you to there are several posts about the girls history and some of the Mennonite story.

  5. I have never eaten a roolyet (or seen one to my knowledge) but I cannot wait to see that recipe and learn how it’s made…. it looks scrumptious and no wonder your pops wants you to make another one.
