This is from Bud Kennedy’s “Eats Tweet” column. In Oklahoma City, police investigated a suspicious foil wrapped object. They found a burrito.
Food trucks are now hailed as a fast-growing industry. They are now serving everything from a hot dog to gourmet food. The area I hail from, Pittsburgh, Pa., and I suppose many other areas, had food trucks as early as the late 1920s. My favorite was the waffle man. Among his treats was a goody made up of two square waffles with a brick of ice cream in your choice of chocolate, vanilla or strawberry in between, and powdered sugar sprinkled on top. They were 10 cents, however a nickel would do if that was all the money you had.
Then later we had the food trucks that made the rounds of businesses. They would stop at break times and at lunch. They served pre-made sandwiches, sweet rolls, fruit, doughnuts, candy bars, cakes and other lunch items. They also sold cigarettes and cigars. They were inexpensive and very popular. I haven’t patronized a modern food truck as yet, but I think it would be fun to try one. What do you think?
TOTS playhouse and others
We have many activities taking place in Weatherford this December during the Advent weeks, both church and secular. The Theater Off The Square playhouse is one of the best amateur theaters in the area. If you haven’t been there you have missed seeing the great local talent. They have a Christmas comedy running called, “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.”
TOTS is inexpensive and you will enjoy a wonderful family outing. Weatherford College always has great plays, musicals and recitals. You can attend for free, so you can’t beat the price. Take the family and see the great job the college is doing for the students. This paper can fill you in on the entertainment locally, so why go elsewhere when we have it all here at home.
