It’s Friday night. And Mr. R. is working, a sad side effect of his new schedule. If he didn’t have to be at work, I’d want to go to the Food Truck Invasion at Abacoa in Jupiter. We’ve been a couple of times and it’s a lot of fun. There are trucks with every kind of food you can imagine. As you walks the streets of Abacoa Town Center, the cacophony of aromas of food cooking outdoors makes your mouth water.
I have one problem with the Food Truck Invasion; I can never decide what to get. How many sandwiches, burgers, burritos, and gyros can you eat?
I usually stick with my stand-by, doughnuts from our neighbor, Redd. He makes them to order while you wait so they’re always hot and fresh. While he makes many varieties, my favorite is the kind with powdered sugar. He takes the fresh doughnuts out of the fryer and puts them in a waxed paper bag, dumps the powdered sugar on them, then rolls the top of the bag closed trapping in all the steam, which sort of emulsifies the powdered sugar to create a kind of glaze. Ho. Ly. COW! That’s good.
If you happen to be in the area on the second Friday night of the month, try out the Jupiter Food Truck Invasion. Maybe we’ll make it in July.
