American with an American Food Truck
« on: May 26, 2020, 07:15:06 PM »
Hey Y'all!  Haven't really posted in the Welcome Wagon but have been a member for a while, but was just too busy to participate often.  BUT with all this social distancing, my food truck events mostly cancelled for the summer, I have a bit more time on my hands.  So thought I'd say "Hi"  I'm from South Carolina and currently live in Hertfordshire, been in the UK on and off for most of my adult life.   Hoping to be more involved!

I know!  Food is everything you miss and brings back so many memories!  The first time I made dressing at Thanksgiving, I cried because suddenly I was home!  And I'm just going to lay this here... DILL PICKLES!  But thanks for asking...  Our usual menu is Southern Cheese Steak - marinated steak sliced thin with pimento cheese, caramelized onions on a soft 7" roll with choice of BBQ sauces and southern slaw.  Soul Smothered Chicken - pan fried chicken cooked in a sage and onion gravy served either over a biscuit or fries.  Mac n Cheese with optional bacon sprinkles. Biscuits n Gravy. And the Angela  a wrap of roasted spiced pecans, crumbled tofu, lettuce, carrots, beets and y'all come back sauce.  And some sides.

It feels a little weird typing it out, haha I say it so many times a day, not to mention explaining the difference between a biscuit and a scone!  I was just going to attach a photo of it but clicking on the "attachments and other options" nothing seems to happen.

looking forward to being part of everything!

Oh yum!

Yeah, the site is weird for photos.  When I load a photo, I do it through the app Tapatalk. 

Where do you usually take your truck?

We had a time at work two summers ago where the cafe on site closed so they had food trucks come (not every day of the week).  They are catching on in the UK and certain ones would generate huge lines!  There is a pizza guy that I swear drove straight over from Italy who made pizza to die for!!

Why did I click on this thread?  I'm drooling.  When this is all over, if you fancy an epic road trip, please take your American food truck to the Highlands!
I've never gotten food on my underpants!

Wow! so many questions!!  I am mostly around Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, but have been known to make longer trips for special occassions!  There is some great pizza trucks out there!  My favourite is a guy from Italy's son!

 ::) Well.... I literally have to explain the difference between biscuits and scones at least twice a day when I'm trading.  And I usually sell out of biscuits n gravy, but I don't take too many portions.  My best reaction was "They are everything I had ever hoped they would be!"  NO ONE has eaten them and said "these aren't my thing"  Although sometimes folks can't get their head around them.  I've got folks who travel 20 miles for them.  The biscuits n gravy and my South Carolina BBQ sauce are the two things most British people are blown away - never had anything like that before!  But my daughter said to me "If you are a Southern Food Truck, you HAVE to serve Biscuits n Gravy"  and she's not wrong.
