Food Truck Invasion

Hello there and happy Thursday!

This week has been a great one thus far and I'm even more excited for the weekend as it includes time with friends!

On Monday, I was asked to help out in another area of oncology that I'm not as familiar with as the one I work in now. It was a great learning experience and I enjoyed seeing another side of what we all do to help our patients!

This week, the cafeteria at work has been out of service, so they lined up a bunch of local food trucks to serve us each day! Before you roll your eyes at me, please know that I live in a small town in Louisiana and the food truck phenomenon didn't hit us until literally within the past two years. Since that time, it seems as if EVERYONE has jumped on board the food truck bandwagon, and we had a variety of foods to choose from this week (from BBQ to Thai and everything in between)!


My week started off with Garden Path Groceries. They are known for having healthier food options and they were only going to be around on Monday, so I went with them.


This chicken salad sandwich was amazing, but I honestly should have ordered a salad bowl instead. Oh well....just means I'll need to go back!


On Tuesday, the food from the Rib Shack BBQ truck smelled SO good, we were willing to stand out in the rain to order it!


This truck had a really cool setup - their smoker is on the back of their truck inside of a cage so they can travel with it! I do believe this was one of the best pulled pork sandwiches I've ever had!


So far though, my favorite has been The Sloppy Taco. They were one of the first food trucks to make their way into my town and somehow, I'd never tried their food!


These tacos look sloppy because they are! I ordered the Al Pastor with pork and pineapples as well as the original Sloppy Taco with beef and shrimp. I also bought a few home for Jason to try and he is hooked, too!



Another favorite find this week was the Peppermint Mocha creamer! I was so excited to see it and snagged one of the last bottles! Now if fall would only hurry up and get here...


You know I can't write a post without mentioning my silly kid! Well, he decided he wanted to start playing peek-a-boo on his own this week....and this was the result. What, you don't smash your face in to hide your eyes when you play peek-a-boo?

 

This week, we've also been attempting to catch up on season 6 of Once Upon A Time. We somehow got incredibly behind and only watched the first episode. As a fun build up to our cruise, we are trying to finish the entire season before we leave. We shall see if that happens or not!


Stay tuned for a look at all of the fun items inside the August PopSugar Must Have Box! It's their birthday month (and mine too), so I'm looking forward to celebrating with them!! :)

Have a great day!

  2. I like the food truck idea, but they don't seem to close by here. My last employer had a couple food trucks, but they were on the other side of campus. I was too lazy to walk over there and then have to battle students.

    1. Oooh yeah I don't blame you. I wouldn't have done that either! :)
