Friends from Afar!

Went to Wheaton last night to meet friends in from California.  Haven't seen them in about 1 1/2 years.  The two boys have gotten older and more handsome than they were, and their father never seems to change a bit.    Met them at a Mexican Restaurant for dinner and had a great time.

Today I was experimenting with vegetables and came up with a delicious Onion and Mushroom Crostada.
A Crostada is an Italian open faced pie.  My mom used to make delicious "Onion Pie" when we were growing up.  She used to make a bottom crust and a top crust like a traditional pie.  I thought I might add mushrooms and some cream cheese to the mix to make it different.  It turned out very, very good. 

Of course I had extra dough so I also made a blueberry Crostada with struesel topping on it.  My hubby gobbled it up quickly.  A good day today to bake and try new things.


  1. Hi Pat, I'm stopping by to follow you and see if I'm able to leave a comment...thanks!

  2. Yea! It worked but it took me four tries! I also had to press preview twice and then it finally went to the security screen and posted. Hopefully this is a new trend! Have an awesome week!
