Food Trucks & Football...

Our weekend was centered around food & football. Needless to say, it was a FUN weekend!!

Alex had the opportunity to have a guys weekend in Dallas. They had awesome tickets to a luxury suite at Cowboys Stadium to watch the Hogs beat A&M! He came home barely able to talk...I think he screamed the entire game. I was happy he was able to go...he deserves some downtime from all the other stuff he has to do. He had a blast which made me happy! :)

Amelia and I started our day over breakfast at Mimi's Cafe. I enjoyed a mocha latte, which is more mocha than latte, but it sure was delicious. I'm trying to get my love for coffee back. Morning sickness ruined it for me but I'm finally over that and starting to enjoy it again!

After breakfast we ran some errands with Aunt Joy and then headed to the Food Truck Festival downtown. I was so excited for this! I watch The Great Food Truck Race on Food Network religiously. I was hoping for some gourmet cuisine like Hodge Podge or The Lime Truck offered but it wasn't really like that.

This is Hot Dog Mike. He's a local celebrity around these parts. He makes the best hot dog on the planet. He also offers veggie dogs for all you folks who hate meat.

I enjoyed a frito chili pie dog.

Oh my.

It was delicious.

FYI: pimento cheese has made a comeback. We split a grilled pimento cheese sandwich by Green Cuisine.

It rocked my world.

We had a great time and came home with full bellies.

I must now clean my kitchen and do some laundry.

It's the hard-knock life.

Love to all,

Green Cuisine rocks my world. You need to go one Friday for lunch and get the Bleu cheese Mac n' cheese. It's to die for.

I didn't even know about the Food Trucks here this weekend. How fun! Glad your love for coffee is back :)

Sounds like such a fun weekend! The food trucks sound awesome! And your hot dog is making me hungry! I am so glad you're feeling better. That makes a HUGE difference!

Jill, I love that you can eat like that while you're pregnant! This time last year, I was surviving on saltines, apples, and mashed potatoes. My nausea didn't really end until well into my second trimester, and then I got acid reflux. So, I pretty much felt like barfing the whole time. :P

That game was a nail biter...yikes!

So glad you are feeling better, and Amelia is just too cute!
