Just Truckin' Along

 
With the opportunity to try all sorts of different foods in one location, food truck rally’s have easily become a favorite. This weekend Utica hosted their second food truck rally, and it was filled with some local favorites.
Eats included:
The Mean Weenie (hot dogs)
The Nosh Pit (vegetarian)
Crepe Day Twah (crepes) – my FAVORITE
Maconi’s Pizza (NYC style meets Michigan style pizza)
Treat Dreams (Ice Cream)
Hog’s Hollow (local restaurant – not a truck)

Of course I got a crepe from Crepe Day Twah, I decided to go with my favorite ‘Apple Pie’. The apple pie crepe features apples, caramel, cinnamon toast crunch cereal and whipped cream (I said no to the whip).
What’s your favorite food truck in your city?

Fall To-Do List


I know, I know the first “official” day of fall is not until September 22 – however in my world as soon as Labor Day is over it’s time to fall into boots, sweater dresses and begin to wait for the leaves to change. Per usual, I have come up with a list of all the things I would like to do this fall, some of these are repeats (during fall there are specific things that I love to do), and some are new. Without further ado, here is my fall list….

Hit the orchard for apple picking
Visit Yates (my favorite) Cider Mill
Snuggle by a fire
Tailgate a football game
Wear dark nail polish
Pick pumpkins at the orchard
Carve pumpkins
Get spooked at a haunted house
Head up north to check out the colors
Make a pie
ATV riding
Enjoy a bonfire and s’mores of course
Stargaze bundled in blankets
Go kayaking or canoeing and check out the color
Make caramel apples
Have a hot chocolate date
Get lost in a corn maze
Go on a hayride
Head out for a color hike
