Food Truck Eats Party

So a little while ago, D came up with this idea of a Food Truck Eats party. Inspired by the Peller Estates Party we went to last year on the Victoria Day weekend (his birthday weekend!), we invited 6 couples, each in charge of bringing a signature food truck inspired dish. It was sweet, simple, delicious fun sampling everyone else's cuisine. 

 On the menu were:
Pulled turkey sliders
Lobster Mac & Cheese
Fish Tacos
Jerk Wings
Trinidadian Oysters
Indian Chicken Kebab Sandwiches

 (We spaced out the food about 30 to 45 minutes  apart so we weren't stuffed after the first hour)

We had planned to host the entire party outside but there were some heavy clouds and cooler temps initially so we decided to switch it up to inside.

There was local craft beer tasting for the so-inclined age of majority....and strawberry sangria... and wine.

Our friend's brought a batch of these to be worn.

I got a ton of these baskets and lots of compostable liners to switch out between meals.

Amazing lobster mac n cheese.

Fish tacos are a must with food truck festivals, no?!

These jerk wings finished in one hot second

A box of chalk and a whole lot of fun

My sweet friend, Andrea took most of these photos! Except for the shoddy iPhone ones. That was all me, baby ;-)

These oysters marinating in this special homemade sauce made me homesick for Trinidad. Andrea is simply the best at shucking and creating this concoction.

Lots of fixings for the kebabs and naan!


As we were eating all day, we kept dessert lighter with homemade ice-cream and cake.
Happy Birthday, my love! Here's wishing you a happy, healthy year to follow!

It was such a fun start to summer 2017! It might just become an annual affair!
