Salad is totally boring…. Or is it?

I must admit, I don’t have a great repertoire of salad recipes. Sure, I’ve made the odd leafy salad, potato salad, chicken salad, tomato salad but my repertoire doesn’t really extend beyond that. I love a good hearty salad when the weather is warm or when I feel like I need a top up of greens in my diet, but I do get a bit bored with the variety of salads that I make (or lack thereof).

Meet my friend the Slow Cooker

I’ve had this blog post on the go for a few weeks now, but because such awesome sweet recipes kept popping up and I felt they needed to be shared post-haste, this recipe was put on the back burner.

These are a few of my favourite things – Food trucks

Something special happened in Adelaide about 18 months ago, a little food truck called Burger Theory appeared offering tasty burgers to the CBD folk, which just happens to include me. And when I say tasty burgers, I mean TAY-STEE burgers. Since then, a few more food trucks have come on to the scene, which include La Cantina Co (Mexican) and Chimichurri Grill (Argentinian) just to name a couple that I have come across recently. I love food trucks because it’s like having your favourite fast food delivered to your front door (or in my case my office building), and who doesn’t love stuff coming to you instead of you going to it?
