Friday after work, Neal and I ventured down to Navy Yard to attend this month’s Truckeroo! Truckeroo DC is a monthly event where local DC food trucks gather to feed the masses. Located right next to Nationals Baseball Park, it’s a fantastic location for friends and families to gather.
The trucks are all parked inside the Half Street Fairgrounds. You do not have to be 18+ to enter, but they do ID you at the gate in order to be able to purchase alcohol. The grounds are 100% family friendly though.
Neal and I first walked around to see all of the food trucks. Some had lines, others had no line, and some had the craziest lines I’ve ever seen.
Based on the line, Takorean was by far the most popular food truck.
Neal and I both decided to get something different and then taste each others dinner. Neal ordered a grilled cheese from The Big Cheese with pepper jack, jalapenos, and guacamole.
I ordered the beef brisket Bonmi sandwich, which was AWESOME!! I love, love, loved my sandwich and would definitely get it again.
For dessert, Neal was tempted to buy a popsicle but the watermelon mint was sold out when we returned to the truck.
Instead he bought two scoops of strawberry shortcake ice cream from Sinplicity Ice Cream.
We had a wonderful time at truckeroo and look forward to going again next month!
This morning Neal and I went to the Rockville Farmers Market to pick up a few things.
Aside from the iced coffee, we purchased some awesome produce and some beautiful flowers!
I just fell in love with these flowers. They were just so bright and beautiful!
We also picked up gala apples, white peaches, onions, eggplant, and plums.
These are the same plums that grew on our trees when I lived in Germany, so I loved buying them.
The peaches were also GORGEOUS! This one was no joke the size of a soft ball. It was huge!
In the end we picked up plenty of produce for the week ahead and will just fill in the holes when we got to the grocery store tomorrow.
After putting away our produce and setting up the flowers Neal and I headed out to run a few errands. Unplanned, we stopped by a pet store and looked at a few puppies. Neal and I definitely want to get a dog soon, so we loved being able to learn about the various breeds they had and to play with a few of the puppies.
Although we didn’t get a puppy today, we’re incredibly excited to get one when the timing is better. I’m thinking after the holidays.
Have a wonderful weekend!! Enjoy every moment.
