Simple cookin'

The Gypsy Caravan and our little Tear Drop headed West to Mc Grath State Beach last week. Oh so lovely was the weather and although we stayed a few days we only really cooked one night. With Andria's Seafood five minutes away who could resist. I knew we were in the right place when Mr Doodles said, "This looks like my kinda place!" If you find yourself in Ventura Harbor, drop in. It's not fancy, just simple and good.

With my seafood allergy I stayed away from anything fishy but everyone else dug right in. Scallops, Fish and Chips and a great looking Clam Chowder loaded with the main ingredient; clams. Not so in some restaurants. Darling husband gave his approval with a clean bowl. They're menu included a grilled chicken sandwich and fries (fried in their own oil, I always ask) and it was tender and tasty.

That next night we started with a bbq'd tri-tip, baked potatoes, and an avocado and tomato salad with lime and olive oil. We finished the meal with a great fire and toasted marshmallows. Aren't simple meals the best? Trust me it was a wonderful meal but it might have been the company, too. The only thing missing was lil bird and company.

those roasted marshmallows were just the perfect dessert for the meal.

We roasted marshmallows the other nite and said we sure wish the tear drop guys were here.

lil bird resents that she is the only one that is not retired and hates her job right now.
