Camarillo Greek Festival

Keftethes:  This meatball dish comes with traditional flatbread and a yogurt dressing with cucumbers.  The meatballs have lots of seasoning.  It's fantastic.

Galaktoboureko:  This tasted ok, but the texture was off.  I suppose you have to eat it right after it's made.  It's made fresh every day, but I had it at the end of the day.  The moisture from the custard had dampened the once flaky layers of dough.

Souvlaki:  This pork dinner is excellent.  It comes with Greek green beans, rice pilaf, pita bread, a dinner roll and a salad.

Saganaki: Flaming sheep cheese!  What a great highlight!  Sheep cheese is one of the great Mediterranean diet items.  It tastes great and has too many health benefits to mention.

The entertainment was great as usual, though I missed the dance troupes.  The Olympians are as hard-driving as ever, playing much longer than their advertised, scheduled sets.  Yesterday, I heard bass lines from "Louie, Louie" and "Smoke on the Water."  Olympians, if you're reading this, follow your impulses and cut loose for a few minutes.
