Clouds ~ Deck of Cards ~ Scrambled Eggs ~ John B ~ Jan V ~ Monday Night Football ~ Tortellini/Bacon Alfredo/Veggies ~ Currie's/Leo's/Fosselman's

Good 46º cloudy morning...

Looks like scattered stuff... noting potent:

Yesterday was nice. We hit 85º, not the 100º+ in Northern and Southern California! YIKES. When are you ever going to get some Fall weather? And another fire near Monterey! Too scary.
I received this from PattyK. It's about a deck of cards. Really good and so many things I never knew about a deck of cards. I guess if you are an avid card player, you might know these things. Anyway, good video.. about 3 minutes.
And I found this musical version..

I thoroughly enjoyed both videos.
Yesterday for breakfast...
Egg-Tastic (of course)... 2 eggs, some re-constituted freeze dried mushroom pieces and celery, mayo, and cheese.

I mixed the eggs well with the veggies and a spoonful of mayonnaise, a pinch of salt and pepper... Cooked in the micro for 1 minute 13 seconds. Then put the cheese on top to melt...
Baby spinach, tomato, and eggs... YUMMMMMM!


Today my friend John Berokoff from far back as kindergarten at Sierra Park and through high school at Wilson is celebrating his birthday. Football player and all around nice guy! Had a crush on him... you can see why. I think ALL the girls had a crush on John! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHN!!!
He left California after he retired from teaching and moved to Tennessee with his beautiful wife Tanya.

Bacon crumbles, tortellini, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, olives, Prego Bacon Alfredo Sauce, baby spinach, fake crab, garlic salt..... 

First I cooked the tortellini in garlic salted water 18 minutes and drained. The mushrooms, artichoke hearts (cut in half), olives, about 1/2 cup of the bacon crumbles, and crab went into a pan with drizzled olive oil and sauteéd until hot. Next went in the baby spinach..

And lastly I stirred in the Alfredo Sauce and heated everything through.   OMGOOOOD!!!!
LOL.... that's breakfast for today too!!!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.

National Ice Cream Cone Day

In El Sereno we had a Currie's Mile High Ice Cream Cone parlor. This isn't it, but close ... on that corner of Huntington Dr and Eastern Ave. It now it looks like this :0(

Another great place for ice cream was Leo's Ice Cream in Alhambra on Main St. just east of Poplar Blvd. On a FB page, I Grew Up In Alhambra, this photo of Leo's was posted from the 1940's (This was before I started going there...) 
The next best place was Fosselman's on Main St. Alhambra just west of where Leo's was. Awesome ice cream. Still there!
For my 50th birthday (gadzzz... I can even remember back that far!!!!) my request was dinner at Lawry's Prime Rib in Beverly Hills and dessert was ice cream at Fosselman's! We stood out front eating our ice cream cones!

Love all the old neighborhood pictures...
I think I've shared before that Mrs. Fosselman was one of my PE Teachers at San Gabriel HS... and YES.. they had the best ice-cream around.
Have and BE a great day my friend.
