Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe – Fannie Flagg

  When I daydream, I do not often wish for material things. I mostly think about spending time with my husband, reading books, eating at quality restaurants, and traveling.

Maggie on the Move – Food Truck

Regarding food trucks, my usual statement is, “I need to hit that action more often.” I have had a couple of subpar experiences, so I haven’t really made it a priority lately. That all changed with Maggie on the Move. Her take on Mediterranean cuisine is not only innovative, but, more importantly, fresh and delicious. The World’s Best PTA...
