Healthy, tasty Mexican food? No, that’s not an oxymoron, but what you’ll find in Los Gringo Locos’ Hernandez Quesadilla Salad, a new menu item available to the public beginning this Thursday at the La Cañada restaurant. The new, slightly spicy salad not only is good nutritionally — it’s good for La Cañada’s kids. The salad is expected to generate thousands of dollars for the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation. Its creator and namesake, Kathy Hernandez, a past La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation president, won the right to develop the salad with restaurant staff through a bid at the Educational Foundation’s annual live auction gala in March.

In a society where carbs have officially become America's number one enemy, I have to confess that I love carbs. That makes me sound like a Benedict Arnold but I can't even comprehend how anyone can possibly give up white bread, pasta and cereal. Those three items are practically my staple foods! Of course, that also probably explains why the doctor told me that I need to think about losing 10 or 15 pounds. It's worth noting, however, that my parents (who are also part of the no carb craze)

As the summer comes to an end, one of my favorite recipe developers, Dana Jacobi, realizes that the abundance of crops appearing at local farmer's markets will soon diminish. "It makes me want to get my fill by eating like a farmer, which means serving inch-thick slabs of tomato cut from two-pound beefsteaks, whole-wheat crostini spread with fresh goat cheese and showered with chopped fresh basil, and a surfeit of sugar-sweet corn," Dana writes. "To savor even more of the sun-soaked rainbow of vegetables so abundant at the end of the summer, I make a succulent salad."

The La Cañada Flintridge Country Club held its first Valentine's Dinner and Dance under the direction of General Manager Cyrus Afshin. Based on a poll of the membership, the dance was held earlier than the traditional date of Feb. 14. The dress code of club casual was strictly enforced as members assembled into the Top O' The Tee for hosted butler-serviced hors d'oeuvres of chicken, jumbo shrimp and brochette. Members then went into the ballroom to sit at reserved tables complete with name signs that are used for all member events.

Every year, I make the same mistake. Every year, I resolve to correct it. Every year, I miss the mark. I recognize my mistake in early October. That’s when I notice the pumpkins growing on the parking lot side of the Dish restaurant. We go inside Dish for lunch. That’s when I notice new items on the menu. Maybe a pumpkin souffle or a pumpkin tart. Maybe a pumpkin bread or a pumpkin soup. But by then, it’s too late. By the time the pumpkins appear at the Dish restaurant on Foothill Boulevard in La Cañada Flintridge, it’s too late.

My Happiest Thanksgiving Memory, Even Though ... One Thanksgiving I drove to Ventura to share the feast with friends. First up was a molded salad with cranberries and nuts. I hate wet, soggy nuts. I was pushing them around my plate when our hostess leaned over to tell me, "You'll never guess the secret ingredient in the salad." After I admitted I wouldn't, she whispered, "Dr. Pepper." Things went downhill from there. We didn't even have pie for dessert. While fiddling with my purse, I somehow took a photo of my plate during the meal.

Ten Years Ago After decades of debate it was decided the section of La Cañada above Foothill Boulevard, from Gould Avenue east to Oak Grove Drive, would get sewers. Sewer Assessment District 98-1 was approved by property owners within the district, with 76% of them in favor of the project. “Hallelujah,” said Paulette Place resident Angelo Buffalino, who had worked with neighbor Ralph Lipscomb to see the assessment approved and the district formed. Twenty Years Ago The La Cañada High School Spartan Marching Band and its auxiliary teams were “thinking green” as they prepared to travel to Dublin, Ireland to participate in the Millennium St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

I want to encourage all civic-minded residents to speak out on behalf of a La Cañada Flintridge reusable bag ordinance. Simply put, this ordinance would ban carryout plastic bags, require the sale of carryout paper bags for 10 cents each, and ask that the store have reusable bags for sale. It would not ban the small produce or product bags used for holding lettuce, meat, and other products. The ordinance would apply only to the largest grocery stores, pharmacies, and convenience stores.
