Still sick at home for the third day in a row. Too lazy to rummage through the picture archives to dig out something totally new. I do, however, have a few posts teed up and ready to go. This one is another from LA/Disney weekend about 2-3 weeks ago.  Off to peruse those new templates again, stay well!


Whenever I hear the words ‘California Chicken Cafe’ I recall a particularly funny Jane story where she repeatedly demands California Chicken Cafe until she drives her brother insane. Hah. Imagine my delight to finally get a taste of the famous chicken.

We went to the CCC in the Valley after Thai massages at Pho Siam (no, not a pho place). I recommend both the chicken and the thai massages. Can you tell I had a good day?


I’m a white meat person and my piece was moist and tender inside with a nicely roasted and seasoned outside. Warm tortillas, mashed potatoes, and chopped Chinese cabbage salad rounded out the meal. They have lots of different dips and sauces you can choose from – everything from sweet and sour sauce to tapatio, and pico de gallo. I can’t remember the exact price but it was reasonable given the quality of the quickie meal.

Tasty shot of the salad as a parting gift.


Yet another chain that has yet to make its way to the Bay. 4****
