National FOOD TRUCK day was spent at home this year….we are preparing for our annual Halloween extravaganza and thusly are too poor to go downtown just for food. I still needed some food truck in my life. So, I prepared one of the items that I would sell from my imaginary food truck. CUBANO EGGROLLS fool! I mean, obvs i’m big into “fusion” foods.. and obvs i’m creative AF…..but I am also super into promoting local. (In case you didn’t already know). I purchased this cannon-balls relish called Dillapeno (<<buy it here <<) relish from the Smithers Family at the Houston Hot Sauce Festival I attend every year. If you love pickles.. as I do… PLEASE try this shiz. I used it in place of pickle slices in my cubans. I made waaay to many but luckily I have a large hungry crew of friends who randomly sail by to graze grub…. otherwise I would be way larger and way in charger. On my food truck, I would make these dericious cuban wraps becasue they are totally finger food and totally a “quickie” item. I wrap so tight… you should too.
First things first, I'm a realist. I am one tattooed mother, a "pin up" wife, with the mouth of a pirate, the mind of a Virgo, and heart of a foodie. I am a Part time caterer, meal prep service & pop up dinner chef, part time candle maker, and hot sauce maker and reviewer. I also work for "The Man" full time in the oil and gas industry. I am a wearer of costumes, planner of parties, tripper of roads, mixer of cocktails, and slave to my animals. I might not be every ones cup of tea, but I'd rather be a few peoples shot of rum anyway.
Fore warning: I write like I speak, i'm kind of vulgar. I over use unnecessary punctuation all. The. Damn. Time! I'm blogging because everyone I know said it's the next thing to do after you flood IG, Pinterest, and FB with food pics and cooking memes. If you want to read about a slightly funny, real life person, cooking what ever the fuck is in the fridge, theme nights, skull food, hot sauce reviews and a lot of badass brunch.... While also talking shit to in animate objects and taking shots...I be your girl.
Most people like to cook, but I LOVE to cook, I love to make my food pretty. I cook when I'm happy, when I'm mad, when I'm bored, when I'm hungry, and when I'm so busy all I can do is procrastinate and cook instead. I always make too much, but usually give all my food creations away because I want to share it with the world. I loathe to grocery shop, but I celebrate having a fully stocked fridge, and I've got some pretty cool ideas I'd like to share with you.
Also, I might be an excessive picture taker. Follow me on Instagram @the_bomb_noms
