Weekend in Southern California
Sea Casa is a small place in Westlake Village that specializes in fresh Mexican cuisine. It is so convenient, reasonably priced and tasty that we made no effort to eat somewhere else. The first night I had a chicken burrito that was far too large to finish. My daughter-in-law’s tostada salad looked so enticing I ordered it on Sunday. I was so famished, I failed to snap a photo to show how beautiful it was prior to devoouring it. I did manage to get a shot of my daughter-in-law’s Sunday choice, a chicken torta. Every order comes with chips and there is an extensive salsa bar with a variety of fresh, homemade salsas to choose from. We tried them all!
Then on Sunday, of course, we returned to Paciugo’s for gelato. I tried several new flavors, but always return to the Mediterranean sea salt caramel. It made for a strange combination, but it was such a blistering hot day (by my Northern California standards of this summer), I wanted something fresh and fruity. So my second flavor was wild berry. I also tasted a very refreshing non-dairy blackberry cabernet gelato, but my daughter-in-law snagged the last scoop.
Now we are home and have no food. I did see where there is a Wednesday night farmers’ market not too far away. But it’s over 100 degrees again today, so maybe I’ll just have yogurt again.
