taco truck rally

Saving log - $0
Spending log - $13 breakfast, coffee
Found money - $0.03 (sidewalks, a penny in our driveway)

Saving log - $3 tip box
Spending log - $1.75 coffee + $15 charity soup lunch + $20 cookbook
Found money - $0.04 (sidewalks)

Ate an outside lunch with the old gang: lawyer friend, lawyer friend partner, screenwriter friend. We ate a fundraiser lunch - all soups and bread donated from the restaurants in town for an entrance fee of $15. As soon I heard there was a cookbook compiling the recipes of the soups on sale, I had to spring for that.

We all asked the question: what's the difference between cream of x, chowder, bisque, and veloute? Smart ass me said "anywhere between a $1 and $3 a cup." I kid because I love.

Today I tried to hit the taco truck rally. Actually I made it to see what it was about and take a picture of it in the middle distance.

There were 7-8 trucks in the lot with a lot of people. I was aiming to try a Korean taco (bulgogi beef with kimchi in a taco, I think), but when I got there, they had no more. I could have gotten ice cream, but I've learned that consolation eating is the worst possible reason to have something. So I enjoyed what I got - the adventure and the picture - and considered it a win. FYI - the Taste of Seattle Taco Trucks sounds like a hoot. Look for it 2012.

    The food I could get behind. The crowd of people? Not so much.

    Nice picture and a neat concept, rallying taco-trucks!

    What the heck is consolidation eating?

    The soups sound great! And I love your answer on the different types Smile Probably because I'm a smartass too! I've never heard of a taco truck either, but the rally idea sounds like fun!
