Date Night at the Bedford Food Truck Festival

This evening, hubby and I went to the Bedford Food Truck Festival. It was within walking distance, and the weather was great, so we walked. There were five trucks - taco, pizza, sushi, slushies and vegetarian. I went solely for Good Karma Kitchen, and I got hubby excited about Slush Works.

I made a bee-line to Good Karma Kitchen. Today's menu included Crazy Good Tacos, Korean BBQ tacos, Reverse Frito Pie, and Crazy Good Taco Salad. Hubby got giddy about the frito pie, and I chose the taco salad. Frito pie had tri-bean and veggie chili, frito chips and cheese. He inhaled it. The taco salad had a taco crumble, jalapeno lime cream sauce, spring greens, beans, cheese and tortilla chips. It was fantastic. The jalapeno added just a little kick. The prices were a little higher than I had hoped, having spent $17. But it was very satisfying and a yummy vegan meal. Hubby said he could live on that chili if he 'had' to go vegetarian. It gives me hope for reducing our meat consumption!
Yay! A gluten-free, vegetarian truck!

He really enjoyed it! There is hope!

We also stopped at Slush Works... twice. They were downright amazing. The menu offered 3 flavors of slush - mango, lemon and coconut. There were extras you could add: mojito (spicy ginger ale and mint), Carribean (passion fruit and coconut puree), Zhi tea, berry fizz (housemade summer berry soda), limonata (fresh lime and sparkling water), and creamsicle (vanilla bean whipped cream). I had a small mango mojito and hubby got the small mango Zhi tea. They were out of this world. So awesome, in fact, that we splurged and went back for seconds! The second time around I had a large mango lemon mojito - I've been on a ginger kick lately and the ginger ale is just perfection. Hubby another large mango Zhi tea.

Hubs ordering seconds!
Mmm... slushies!

I just might have to start using Twitter more often so I can enjoy these trucks another time! Hubs said that if I start going to the farmers' market again and Good Karma Kitchen was there, I'd have to bring home another frito pie! Tonight was a fun date night where we got great food and great exercise!
