El Nino is a weather phenomena that occurs when seawater warms at the equator in the Pacific Ocean. During winter, this spawns wetter conditions in California. California has been experiencing a terrible drought. They need the rain and snowfall in the mountains, but not so much all at once.
|The skies cleared for our breakfast two days later.|
On our way to Pasadena for a "vacation within a vacation" from USC sports events, we stopped at a restaurant called the Tallyrand that was recommended by our good friend Jeanne.
The Tallyrand in Burbank is famous for its turkey dinners. They cook 200 pounds each morning for their hot turkey sandwiches and dinners. They are also well known for their hearty breakfasts.
Wayne and I skipped our breakfast so we would be hungry for a 12:30 arrival at the Tallyrand. Inside we found a cozy coffee shop atmosphere with enough counter, booth and table space for the hungry crowd.
|Turkey dinner smothered in gravy, yum!|
Wayne and I ordered the $12.00 senior turkey dinner. Wayne got his with homemade soup and blueberry muffin. I got salad and sourdough. The turkey came with dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and cranberry sauce. It was like a bit of Thanksgiving on a cold and rainy day, just what we needed.
|We returned for their $6.20 breakfast special.|
Whether it's breakfast (yes, we had to go back again), lunch or dinner, you won't be disappointed.
Thanks for visiting part of my world this week. There are so many places to visit, savour, and enjoy. -- Margy
