Weekend Foodie Warriors- Take 7!
Hello hello, again, Foodie Friends 🙂 So sorry for the delay, we had our annual sales meeting this week at work and we were entertaining almost every night this week!
Hope you had a great Passover & Easter Weekend, look for a two-part blog about my adventures with both holidays in the next few days.
In this edition of Foodie Adventures, I’ll be talking about The Gravy Train for Food Truck Thursday, baking with mom, and brunch goodies!
The Gravy Train Food Truck
“Gravy! But that’s how it goes!” – Zach.
“I was enticed to hop aboard The Gravy Train, a food truck here in Greenville. They had a wide selection of poutine-themed meals, yet I ultimately went with the Chicken BBQ fries with cheese.”
Picture #1: It was sweet, tangy, smokey, and topped with crispy onion fries. Picture #2: Their menu board out front, with chicken bacon ranch wraps and poutine too!
“Each bite was cherished until I had no more. Will be on the look out the next time they are around!” – Zach’s raving review, will have to go with him next time 😁💖
Baking with Momma 💜
Lake Norman, NC
Ever since I was little, baking with mom has always been one of my favorite activities! Holidays are great for cooking together and we take advantage of this when I come home to visit.
We started out with what would be our first Easter dessert- Apple Blueberry pie with homemade crust! *Recipe coming soon*
The homemade crust is really what makes the pie, its so super flaky and so worth the effort. It’s only 4 ingredients!
This was me rolling out the pie crust and sealing it around the edges. If you’re wondering why I’m only wearing one glove, I ended up slicing part of my finger off trying to make kugel (a savory potato and onion casserole) for my good friend’s Jewish Passover celebration (but more about that experience next time).
The finishing touch to the pie was the steam cuts I made and brushing some milk on top to brown the pie in the oven.
Next on our dessert list was making homemade brownie ice cream sandwiches, something she saw on a cooking show and wanted to replicate!
Start with plastic wrap, brownies, great ice cream. Put them together & tie them into mini packages!
The final results on our Sunday table, those ice cream sammies went quick! 😋
Sunday Brunch Goodies
After the holiday weekend, I had some kugel left over from our adventures, and I cracked a fried egg and some bacon on Saturday morning for my brunch. Not Kosher for any of my Jewish friends, but super yummy!!
Afterwards we were taking advantage of the lovely weather this weekend and ran into some adorable furry friends at the park…..🐶🐶
Picture #1: Two brother and sister Husky puppies we saw at the park taking a walk after brunch, Kora (girl- purple) and Fury (boy- blue). Picture #2: Kora getting acquainted with Zach. Picture #3: Fury hanging out between his owners. Picture #4: Kora playing peekaboo with Zach!
Rounded Sunday Brunch off with – you guessed it- Greenfield’s Bagels!
I took Zach there for the first time and we had bagel sandwiches. Mine was a sun-dried tomato bagel with egg & in-house sliced deli pastrami, and he had a honey wheat bagel with egg & muenster cheese. I also took home a half a dozen bagels for the fam of course! 💜
