The city of Monrovia California is my hometown. It is where I grew-up and where I spent the first 25 years of my life; until I married my hubby four years ago, and became a military wife on the move!
Monrovia has my heart, it is where my soul likes to be!
The downtown main street of Monrovia is like stepping back into a simpler time. . .
Old Town Monrovia has a movie theatre, an old fashioned bakery, quaint little restaurants, shops and pubs.
Monrovia is known as the gem city, nestled just below the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains.
Each Friday evening in my town, you will find vendors, produce sellers and people who line Myrtle Avenue, (the main street of Monrovia) for the Friday Night Family Street Fair.
Last night Robbie , Aunt Becky and I went to the Friday night street
First stop was the petting zoo!
Robbie loved the baby bunnies!!
Aunt Becky then treated us to a nice dinner at Rudy's Mexican Restaurant!
Love, Love the chips and guacamole at Rudy's!
and I went home a happy camper!!
I bought this adorable hat that makes me smile for just $ 10.00 at the street fair!
When we returned home, Robbie was all smiles and giggles with Gompa before his bath and bedtime story!
The end of a great evening!
Today's Fall recipe will give you a great idea of what to do with all of those Thanksgiving leftovers or just a fun appetizer to serve at your next dinner party!
Turkey Cranberry Wreath
What you'll need:
2 packages (8 ounces each) refrigerated rolls
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons honey Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
2 cups cooked turkey, chopped (12 ounces)
1/2 cup celery, diced
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, snipped
1/2 cup dried cranberries
4 ounces Swiss cheese, shredded (1 cup)
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
1 egg, separated
What you'll do:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll crescent dough; separate into 16 triangles. Arrange triangles into a wreath on a baking stone. Mix mayonnaise, mustard, pepper, turkey, celery, parsley, cranberries and cheese. Scoop filling onto dough, top with nuts and seal. Beat egg white lightly, and brush over dough. Bake 25-30 minutes or until brown. (For individual rolls, unroll crescent roll dough into rectangles. Press perforations between the triangles to seal, and cut each rectangle into two squares. Place a scoop of filling in the center of each square, and pull up corners of dough to center. Sprinkle a few nuts on the roll, and bake for about 20 minutes. This will make tummies everywhere very happy!
