Atlanta Food Truck Park

Over the weekend, we visited the Atlanta Food Truck Park http://atlantafoodtruckpark.com/. 

We got there about 6:00 or so, and it was only a little crowded, but became more crowded as we were there. This day, there were maybe 6-8 trucks, with a good mix of food choices. All the vendors inside the trucks were working really, really hard and some had long lines.

We tried bangers and mash and fish and chips. Both were really fresh and well-cooked, but we were with my neighbor who is from Wales and he declared the bangers and mash to not be very authentic. But, I thought it was really good.

We also tried tacos from the barbecue truck....mine was brisket and was delicious! I liked the addition of the dill pickle slice.

We finished with gelato....also delicious. We tried key lime and cinnamon. Both were yummy and refreshing.

If you get a chance, check out the new Atlanta Food Park Truck....I think you'll be glad you did.

Santa Monica Farmer's Market

I just returned from a visit to Los Angeles to visit my son who lives there. I timed my flight arrival on Wednesday to make sure I could make it to the farmer's market at the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica.

This is one of my favorite things. It was one of my favorite things when I lived there. If you go to Los Angeles, go to the 3rd Street Promenade on Wednesday mornings. You'll be glad you did.
