You all know my dear friend Elizabeth ~98 years young. With graduations, doctor appointments and general busyness, I hadn't had a chance to visit her for almost a month. So today I decided I would just take off and make a day of visiting her and running a few errands on that side of L.A. (She is such a sweetheart and looked so pretty in her pink blouse)
She has such a good memory and loves to tell me stories. She's quite the "pack rat" (I say that nicely) so today she share with an invitation dated 1937 in Hungarian. She explained it was a Hungarian Ball. That is where she's from. It listed the menu of stuffed cabbage, and other delicacies. It was held after the grape harvest and bunches and bunches of grapes were hanging from the ceiling. Sometime during the ball, the lights were turned off and you could keep as many bunches as you could grab in the dark. Doesn't that sound like a fun time??
When we lived in Sunland we enjoyed Guido's Combination Pizza almost every Friday night. I had this idea since I was going right by it on my way home from my visit with Elizabeth to pick up one and surprise my dearest.
It was torture driving 45 minutes with it sitting in the back seat and the aroma kept tickling my nose. More that once I almost pulled off the road and had a piece. But I held off, and we enjoyed it so much. Not much leftover....but then it's been a long long time since we've had Guido's.
How was your Saturday?
