Today I am in Southern California again, greeting the arrival of my son’s first child – my grandson. It was such a joy to meet him within an hour of his birth. I am completely mesmerized. I spent hours yesterday holding him, just watching him sleep.
You may recall that I was not pleased when my son and his wife decided to leave the beach and move inland. But my dismay was somewhat relieved when I discovered there was a Paciugo’s gelato shop very near our hotel. We stopped there last night. I had a combo of cinnamon and Texas pecan caramel sea salt. Mmmmm good.
We selected six donuts to try. A couple of standards for comparison to regular favorites and some new varieties. A chocolate covered cake, cinnamon crumb, regular glazed, plain cake, orange glazed cake and this decadent looking orange cinnamon glazed buttermilk torpedo shaped thing. Taste testing must be accompanied by milk and coffee.
