The Little Chef Food Truck Defies First Impressions

“Don’t judge a book by its cover.” This quaint piece of advice is older than anyone reading this, and in most cases has nothing to do with a book. It’s typically a preconceived opinion we have about someone or something that turns out to be dead wrong.

It’s In-the-Books: International StreetFood Challenge

international streetfood challenge aubrianasMany moons ago when I was a child, I’d pull out a big catalog and a marker to circle the items I had hoped that Santa would bring me. Not only was this an excellent way to keep me quiet and a way for my parents to plan their shopping excursions, but it built up the holiday hype for me. I’m pretty sure I had all 3,872 items memorized and when we’d rip into the presents on Christmas morning, I always ended up with my top tiered options.
