Food Truck: Der Pretzel Wagen

pretzel & cheese from Der Pretzel Wagen

There are so many Indy food trucks that I haven’t tried. (I know, I’m crazy behind!) I thought I would share a favorite here and there as I try them. I recently tried a salted pretzel with a side of cheese sauce ($5, they’re $4, by themselves) from Der Pretzel Wagen and oh my gosh…these are awesome. They’re served piping hot and the dough has a sweetness to it. I didn’t try one of the sandwiches, but I heard they rock. I’ll have to try one on the next visit:) Let me know what your faves are… Thanks!

Say Anything (25 Years)

 

Diane Court (Ione Skye) and Lloyd Dobler (John Cusack)… 25 years (as of 4/14/2014). Say Anything was one of my fave movies back then and in my opinion it still holds up as a realistic teen love story/modern day romance. Cameron Crowe is the man.

A few mentions/info about the 25th anniversary.

Green Bean Delivery & a Discount For You

One of the bin deliveries I’ve received from Green BEAN Delivery.

I’m a fan of Green BEAN Delivery and here’s why:

1. It’s super convenient & affordable.

You receive an email with your order for the week. You can stick with what’s being delivered or you can change the order or add things to it.  A few days later (depending on your delivery day) there’s a bin waiting for you! So easy. Green BEAN Delivery is affordable. A small produce bin which is for about 2-3 people is $35.00. Believe me that you receive a lot of produce!  And sometimes I’ll pay more and add a few other products like eggs, milk or bread to the bin…which saves me a trip to the grocery store. You can also order a lot of local products like HUSK corn, Smoking Goose meats, U-Relish, Scholar’s Inn breads and more.

2. It’s a good opportunity to try more local produce/organic produce and products. 

I admit I don’t buy 100% organic or local, but I try to when I can and I love that all of the produce from Green BEAN is either organic or local.

3. I’m switching up what I cook.

I think of each bin delivery as a challenge to cook a few new meals. There might be an item in the bin that I don’t normally cook with a lot– such as kale or rainbow chard. This gives me the opportunity to try a new recipe or two. Need some recipe inspiration? You can find recipes on Green BEAN’s website (greenbeandelivery.com)
