It’s the last work day of summer vacation parents……you made it!! School starts next week! Today’s Friday special, The La Di Da, thinly sliced prosciutto, rosemary infused honey and creamy goat cheese on crusty French bread. In honor of today’s special, Lou broke out the classic T-shirt, love the shirt Lou! While we’d like to think Lou’s “T” is dedicated to us, we can’t be T-shirt plagiarists……it is in memory of Chris Farley from one of his classic moments on Saturday Night Live, check out the video.
Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck was set up this past Sunday at The Waldorf for the Yelp and Street Food Vancouver Food Cart Fest. We seemed to have a line up of about 50 people deep all day long and we even ran out of bacon!! Sacrilegious! Blasphemy! I guess that’s a good thing, it means the grilled cheese was selling like hotcakes.
If you didn’t know, Food Cart Fest happens every Sunday till September 2 and it’s free and family-friendly. From week to week, the Food Cart Fest will be complimented by a series of community markets. These weekly events also featured a 19+ beer garden in The Waldorf outdoor tiki beach area, live musical performances, DJs, and other family entertainment. It’s a great Vancouver community event, check it out!
After a last minute cancellation of a group order for a lot of grilled cheese sandwiches by the folks at Oakridge Mall, Mom’s was left with a lot of wasted food. Instead of tossing it all away and wasting it, we decided to drive by Pigeon Park downtown Vancouver and offer some great Mom’s sandwiches to the homeless people. The sandwiches were a big hit!
The last time you were at Mom’s for lunch, you probably noticed those incredible chips that all our grilled cheese sandwiches come with. You may even have wondered……who makes these incredible chips? Well, today you get a little lesson on one of Mom’s supply partners, Hardbite Chips.
For Wes Heppell and Pete Schouten, potato farming has been in their family’s since 1920. Today, Hardbite Chips, not only uses the best potatoes and limited ingredients in their Maple Ridge BC facility, but they also make a chip that isn’t horrible for you! Yay! These chips have no artificial anything in them. No GMO or MSG, no trans fat or cholesterol, they are low in salt and gluten free. On top of that, the company is all about sustainability. In every Hardbite bag is a commitment to support sustainability in farming. From seed to chip, they’re produced and made locally, giving back to the communities that provide Hardbite with its ingredients and inspiration. A great chip that gives back, very cool!
Sunny, highs approaching 30 degrees and blue skies! No better place on earth on a beautiful day than Vancouver……..and it’s an ideal day to come down for lunch to Mom’s for a grilled cheese. If you feel like something a little different and decadent, why don’t you try what a great couple we met from New York City tried, The Fat Elvis! Peanut butter and banana with a sprinkle of smoked sea salt on white. Yes, you too can eat like the King. Check out the King in action in Hawaii in 1973, lay included! Thank you very much.
Does Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck make the best grilled cheese in Canada? Here is what you had to say, and please comment. Cheers!
Yup, Friday is finally here, TGIF! Our Friday special today and every Friday (imagine that) is The La Di Da, a thinly sliced prosciutto, rosemary infused honey and creamy goat cheese on crusty French bread. It’s become so famous there is even a T-shirt for it out there, really.
While we are on the topic of prosciutto, if you need a great appetizer for a dinner party this weekend try this out; take some prosciutto and spread Boursin cheese on it, then roll it up with asparagus in the middle. Cook at 450 for about 8 to 10 minutes. It’s an amazing appy! Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
