Victims of Success!!

I appreciate having blog readers from all over. I know I have one in England( Nick). Encinitas is a small (66,000 people) coastal surf
beach town 25 miles north of San Diego. I moved here in 1988 and opened my store, Coast Hwy Traders, in 1996.

Wow Coast Hwy Traders will be 20 years old next year!

Of course I have seen lots of changes downtown. But in the last year rents have escalated and more changes are a foot. Now we have 6 places for rent!  Chains are breathing at our door step. We are doing our best to find small businesses to join our town.

I worry I am going to be surrounded by coffee shops and restaurants. Popularity is a two edged sword. I wonder how many of you are seeing
change in your towns and what you locals think of all the happenings in Encinitas.

The (Real) Caesar Salad Recipe

ceasar recipe

 

I love going to Caesar’s Palace on Revolution in Tijuana, Mexico. The food there is delicious and they still make the Caesar Salad table side. When you see that this recipe is for two you realize it is not exactly low calorie but worth every bite. Caesar’s claims to be where the salad originated and I believe them. There are some fabulous chefs now cooking it in Tijuana. Sometimes I go to Caesars for the salad and then do a late lunch at Mission 19. Tijuana is perfectly safe to visit and with more lines open, it is easier to cross. If you would like me to organize a group eating and shopping trip, just let me know.

Caesar’s Salad Recipe

serves Two

1 head romaine lettuce
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tablespoon ground mustard
1 clove crushed garlic
coddled egg
1 lime, juiced
fresh ground black pepper
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 sliced baguette oven baked garlic croutons
6 anchovy fillets

Clean lettuce thoroughly and refrigerate until crisp, at least 1 hour or more. In a wooden bowl combine olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, anchovies, garlic and part of the grated Parmesan. Whisk with a wooden paddle until it forms a paste.

Once cooled crack the egg and whisk yolk into dressing until thoroughly blended. Add whole romaine lettuce leaves and gently roll them into the dressing. Serve on a platter and add the rest of the grated cheese, croutons, fresh ground pepper and salt to taste.
