This September, I had a chance to go visit my family on the mainland. Here are a few of the wonderful things I saw:
- Fall harvest vegetables grown just outside the city. There are white pumpkins and wing squashes along with other varieties.
- Food truck rally – I found it fascinating that one of the trucks was painted with the phrase “Recession Dining”. The food truck culture was huge there! To my surprise (and joy) there was a truck that had a couple of vegan options, one of which had already sold out.
- My favorite truck was Native Foods. The woman who owned it was a young woman with so much love and joy for cooking. Her passion came through in the flavors. I nibbled a little bit of the fry bread and tasted some of her french fries. She made tacos and enchiladas with the fry bread as a shell.
- The last thing was an amazing new health food store complete with a demo kitchen and community room. How I wish it were mine!
