Two weeks ago I went to the second annual Gourmet Food Truck Festival held at Del Mar Racetrack. It was perfect San Diego weather to be outside. Sunny, breezy, not too hot.
About 50 different food trucks from Southern California were in attendance and there was a selection of more than 60 craft beers as well. The admission fee was simply the cost of a race track ticket ($6), which was pretty cool because you got to watch the races too.
Because I have tried most of the San Diego trucks, I concentrated a lot on the Orange County and Los Angeles trucks.
The Lime Truck
I watched them win The Great Food Truck Race and wanted to see what they were all about. None of the crew from the show were present though. The menu is always changing and on that day they offered a selection of tacos.
The person taking my order recommended this one. The pork was tender and flavorful, but it didn’t exactly wow me.
I had been wanting to try a lobster roll from Lobsta truck for the longest time. I wasn’t the only one. This truck definitely had the longest line of all the food trucks. You get a choice of butter or mayo with your lobster roll. I chose butter.
The roll was toasted and warm and it was full of succulent sweet chunks of lobster. I haven’t yet had a lobster roll from the East Coast so I don’t know how it matches up, but I enjoyed every bite and kind of wanted seconds.
I have a lot of bottles of white wine leftover from the wedding that I’ve been staring at and cold sangria mixed with summer fruit has been a refreshing treat in this hot weather.
I have also been making a lot of ice pops with my ice pop molds. It’s been so fun. I’ve made cookies and cream pops and Nutella fudge pops. I’ve also made a ton of fruit flavored ones in an effort to help eat up all the fruit I keep buying. (It’s also a sneaky way to DH to eat more servings of fruit.)
So the other day, I got the idea to combine both after I made some juice pops with fresh fruit pieces inside that looked like frozen sangria.
I’m not usually good at coming up names for recipes, but this one came to me easily.
If you are the kind of person to cry over spilled milk, this recipe may not be for you.
But even with the spilled milk, it’s delicious. And super easy. I took the 5 Minute Mug Macaroni and Cheese recipe and combined it with a four ingredient macaroni and cheese recipe. Rather than cooking the macaroni noodles in water first, I directly cooked them with milk in the microwave. The recipe is ready in about 4 minutes.
When cooking the noodles in the microwave, the water will boil over. The same thing happens with the milk. Hence the name.
