As the sausage turns.

I went to the Piazza farmer's market today with Jaime and her daughter, Abby. While I only bought strawberries and radishes (huge radishes!), I was glad to get out of the house and away from the four footed mongrels that torment my existence if I so much as sit still for even a moment. Yes, Squirt, you are cute, but you torture me with your constant need to be chasing the ball.

Who me?

Thanks to the purveyor's of the Renaissance Sausage truck for keeping it real for the vegetarians of the world. I give you the veggie sausage sandwich. Delicious.

As it is a holiday weekend, I have a feeling that the Piazza farmer's market was sparsely populated by vendors. Thus, we headed to the Headhouse farmer's market to see who else was about. The answer: no one. Except for the Buttercream cupcake truck. Yes, I made a meal off of food trucks today. I haven't done that since college. The Turtle cupcake that I ate was awesome: vanilla cupcake with caramel frosting topped with pecans and chocolate ganache. You would see a picture below, except I ate the cupcake too quickly. Hence, you can gaze in wonder at the cupcake offerings.

For the record, my husband says I am obsessed with the idea of food trucks. And why not? What other venue gives you such flexibility of location and low overhead? It forces you to keep your menu limited to what you know you do well! I think Gordon Ramsay would approve of the many gourmet/specialty food trucks that have been cropping up of late. I know these two have my wholehearted support.

  1. Thanks for documenting the day. It was fun.
    That sausage sandwich was so good. It's nice to have a hearty meat-free sandwich.
