Today I had to head into Seattle to drop off some donations (to Mary’s Place—a great resource for homeless families in Seattle—locals, check them out!), and since we left close to lunch time I decided to take the boys to our new favorite food truck, No Bones About It. How cute is their name?
It just so happened that they were parked in front of our favorite vegan bakery, the Violet Sweet Shoppe. Ironically, there was plenty of space for their truck because the butcher that used to be there went out of business!
Two weeks ago we went to the truck when it was parked in front of Irving’s office in another part of Seattle and I loved it! I was excited to go back today.
As we walked up to the truck we were greeted by the very friendly owner/chef MacKenzie with a “Hi Sarah, how are you?” Me: “I’m … stunned!” I couldn’t believe that she recognized us and knew my name—we had only been there one time—off to a great start! I’ve mentioned before that Irving always teases that someday I will have a food truck—maybe I can apprentice for MacKenzie?!? Anyway, the lunch gets better….
I debated between ordering their special, a Bahn Mi, and their Yam and Sweet Potato Falafel. She recommended the Bahn Mi, and it was awesome! She also made a custom quesadilla for David, just like last time (she remembered). He loved it so much last time that we had to run out and get a bag of Daiya so that we could make them at home. She asked him what kind of veggie he wanted on the side, and sliced his tomatoes just the way he likes them at home!
^^^ Staying warm inside! Stay tuned for a post on Friday about the first solid foods Jonathan is trying out!
We ate in the bakery, as it was raining and too chilly to eat outside (they are so nice there—check out their new candy store up on Phinney Ridge!). We ordered a spooky spider cupcake to share, and a carrot cake to bring home for later. David was in Heaven with his spider cupcake, especially as he just finished studying spiders at school!
As we ate lunch we overheard people ordering pumpkin bread, so we of course had to get back in line to get some to bring home, and some to deliver to grandma too!
After lunch as we were heading out MacKenzie asked us how lunch was. We told her we loved it, and that we’d try the falafel next week. She told me she might not have it next week—I guess it’s the end of falafel season, and time for a new menu—so she whipped one up for me, on the house! It served as an awesome afternoon snack—yum!
^^^ This picture doesn’t do it justice—it had to sit in the car during swimming lessons! It’s a sweet potato yam falafel patty, with a beet slaw, cucumbers, and a pumpkin aioli. It was so delicious! I saved the other half for Irving, but I’m secretly hoping that he lets me have it!^^^ Our “to-go” order
Definitely check out No Bones About It and tell them Fried Dandelions sent you—you can find their schedule on their Facebook page. They’re mostly in Seattle, but next Thursday, October 30, they’ll be on the Eastside at the 24 Hour Fitness in Redmond! You know where we’ll be having dinner next week—come say hi!.
