At work today, one of my coworkers, Kaylen, was raving about the Big Wheel Provisions food truck that parked itself in downtown Orlando yesterday.
She claimed that their food was “gourmet to go” and featured amazingly fresh and delicious local fare. After hearing her speak so highly about the food from the Big Wheel Provisions truck, I just had to see what all the fuss was about. Kaylen, another one of my workers and I took a quick trip to the truck to check it out.
I was immediately impressed with the menu.
I really wanted to try the “Hot Lunch” special which featured a corned beef sandwich, but since we’re having corned beef for dinner, I held off and decided to save my money since I already packed my lunch anyway. (I really want to go back for lunch sometime soon and try the grilled calamari salad that Kaylen ordered. It looked unreal!)
Once my eyes got to the “Sweets” section of the menu, my mouth started watering. Whoopie pies? Red velvet cupcakes!?
After speaking with the owner of the truck who was so friendly, passionate and just plain cool, I knew I had to buy something and figured Ryan and my sister would appreciate a sweet treat.
I nabbed a whoopie pie for Leslie to enjoy as a reward after her interview today and a red velvet cupcake (the same flavor as our wedding cake!) for Ryan just ‘cuz he’s so great.
That whoopie pie is calling to me. Literally. I can hear it. “Juuuuulie. Eaaaaat me.” I can resist! I’m calling on my inner strength.
While chatting with the owner of the Big Wheel Provisions truck, I saw that they offered a soda called Moxie. When I asked him about it, the owner said it’s really popular in Maine, but isn’t for everyone and ended up giving us a can to try for free!
Turns out I’m a Moxie fan! 🙂
When we arrived back at the office, I knew I had to break into my lunch or else I would want to dig right into the sweet treats I purchased.
Lunch today was a “grilled” cheese sandwich which I prepared by melting a slice of Swiss cheese on top of a toasted whole wheat hot dog bun before spreading one half with spinach artichoke cream cheese. Double the cheese = double the fun!
I also ate some leftover roasted cauliflower for some veggie pow-ah!
Back to work for a bit. I hope you’re all having a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
