Good Morning and Happy Monday to you

Here is a little peek at what I was up to this weekend...

Photo 1. Food Truck Friday

On the second Friday of the month from April to October the park near me holds a Food Truck Friday event. I had only made it to one this year, so I was excited to go out and get some grub!  This Friday there was 26 food trucks to choose from - how can I even make a decision with that many options?  I ended up trying a new truck, Frankly Artisan Sausage, and I'll be going back!  They have some sort of fries topped with melted cheese THAT IS MELTED INFRONT OF YOU OFF THE WHEEL!!! I somehow ordered something different so I need to go back in order to get those fries.

Over the last week, we have watched nothing else but the Olympics.  So to say I'm starting to get sported out is an understatement.  But this weekend was the opening of the Barclays Premier League and we had to support the team.  Not only that, but we watched four of those matches then stayed up watching the last of the swimming and multiple track and field events.  Speaking of which, I want the track and field commenters to do all commenting from now on, "it's like a quivering fish!"

Photo 3. Mini Pies

There is nothing I like experimenting with more than baking and pies.  It seems that over the last two years if we want to make a fancy or date night meal then we make a pie.  This weekend I took on mini pork pies.  Sadly, I wasn't able to really find sausage meat that would work perfectly but it still turned out positively delicious and I think this was my best attempt at shortcrust pastry yet!

I hope you had a good weekend. For now, I'm off to get this week started!
