Real Quick Pop In Post

This past week was a whirlwind. Once again my hubby was traveling, I was solo, every night had something in it I needed to tend to, and now I am really looking forward to some down time.

Food prep was basic since it was just me. Some cinnamon apples, veggies and homemade dip, and an quick cucumber salad to pair with any meal.

I also blended some carrot puree for my little people to eat for meal time. I had it all cleaned up and then realized I dated the containers wrong….life goes on. No big deal!

And the event that made the week was when I went with a friend to attend a food truck rally. Interesting how many food truck are coming about in this area.

Truck of choice this evening was the King Of Philly’s. Our orders came quickly and both tasted wonderful.

Next week I plan to share our weekend fun, two disc golf courses we recently visited and what I thought of each, and then it’s July 4th. Time to celebrate.

We had another fun filled year at the N.E.W. Zoo Feast With The Beast.

We have attended this yearly event for the past several years now and it just gets more enjoyable every year. This year my brother, another couple, and a person my husband works with along with his son in law and his grandson joined us. And let me tell you….we all left in a food coma!

From BBQ ribs, which is always our first restaurant table to stop at,

to fancier wonton lime shrimp cups….you can never say there was not enough food offered during this event. IMG_5118

Many of the featured restaurants offer one or more food samples and often also add in a specialty brew. There were numerous breweries throughout the event along with wine and margaritas thrown in just incase your not a beer drinker….like myself.

And if you need a break in between samples, you can also enjoy the live music IMG_5130

or view the animals who are enjoying the extra attention they receive by all the event goers.

This year ended up being just wonderful. Another great job was done by the event planners, zoo staff and of course Mother Nature for giving us perfect weather to enjoy the evening.
