After Penny’s inspiring presentation, she encouraged us to go hunting with our camera at lunch. We were also assigned a 250 word or less blog post about lunch by Kathleen. I wasn’t planning to do it, until I was utterly blown away by my awesome meal. Here’s my post:
I told myself I wouldn’t write another post today, but I can’t help writing about the ethereal burger experience I just had after a visit to the Skillet food truck. I really just stopped there because they were the first truck I saw that looked ready to serve the army of starving bloggers. But as a gloved hand attached to a tattooed arm gracefully slipped me a burger, and shyly smiling lips whispered the words “bacon jam”, I became transfixed and could think of nothing else.
I found my own secluded corner for a bacon jam burger picnic. As other bloggers looked my direction, I reflexively tried to appear larger so that no one would think there was room to join me.
Even holding the burger by the bun, my fingers were quickly coated in a glorious film of grease. The bright pink of the meat promised a tender bite that was quickly delivered. Sweet bacon jam and pungent cambozola melted my taste buds with happiness. All too soon the burger was gone. I gave a deep sigh, reveled in the moment, then returned to the line for seconds.
