If my recent meals are any indication, the sun is finally starting to bring some warm weather to the South. I could enjoy a salad for nearly every meal right now, which is in stark contrast to the complete disgust I had for raw vegetables for the first couple weeks after that stomach bug. Despite the high pollen counts and yellow dust in the air, I've enjoyed many dinners al fresco with the last hour of sunlight and warmth.

I was intrigued by the filling for these raviolis and particularly loved that they were cheese-less. The brand is La Pasta and I found them at Earth Fare.

Baked crinkle cut french fries with a hefty dip in ketchup never tasted so good!
You could not have asked for better weather on a spring afternoon. After a exhausting morning, including a bike, half-marathon, grocery shopping, and laundry, I made my way to SouthEnd and prepared to gather lots of food. Knowing that there was no way I could eat so much food in one setting, I came prepared with a bag to collect the small plates.
Tin Kitchen's duck confit and sweet potato taco (the top picture below) was my favorite! The soft serve frozen yogurt with pomegranate molasses and pistachios was a close second. Overall, I was very impressed with the quantity and quality of the food truck options.
Can you believe all of this food?! From the top going clockwise is smoked trout slider with slaw, bahn mi sandwich/smoked salmon on a sweet potato latke/sweet potato maki roll, buffalo wings and buffalo pizza, sweet potato cupcake, sweet potato tiramisu and lemon cookie, sweet potato tots with braised brussel sprouts, sweet potato poutine with smoked beef taco, coconut curry pork and rice, and potato croquettes/lasagna cupcake.
I think I'll be enjoying leftovers for a couple days to come!
