Hamilton has its spring Sew Hungry food truck event today-34 of the 35 food trucks are open until 8pm or while food lasts to feed foodies and Ottawa Street shoppers (the district is known for its number of fabric stores and other businesses).

The popularity of food trucks began in the United States. One Toronto man brought the concept to the city with his own food truck event-now, food trucks are seen as street eat options in many major urban areas and also important features of festivals and farmer's markets. Some food trucks emphasize local foods or produce in their menu offerings.

As the day is overcast and raining on and off, hot food today will warm up shoppers who need energy to finish their home decor, fashion or notion shopping. Or to make their decisions on a sewing machine to get into sewing in a big way.

Do the food trucks sell beer? Wait, I just thought there could be liquor laws maybe allowing public consumption of beer. Beer and food go well-helps to be seated to enjoy the meal.

I like seeing the musicians that help make the lineups bearable. Traffic and crowds alone don't add "mood for buying food"-so street entertainers play a role.

A food truck sounds really good for dinner-letting someone else prepare dinner is GREAT! Just got home and it's either leftovers from yesterday or boil some water for quick pasta.

A pulled pork sandwich will be something to look for next weekend.

Today is the US Thanksgiving holiday! Saveur magazine, one of the many US food magazines, tweeted a story link about giving
thanks to indigenous foods of the USA. There's a food truck in the story-that truck serves foods that the original peoples living
on the land long before the USA was a nation ate from the Earth around them. There's a person keen on sharing his food knowledge
so that others can know those foods too.

Definitely a reason to give thanks for many stories about Thanksgiving relate to indigenous peoples sharing harvest foods with the newcomers to the land.

#EatLocal indeed.

Iceland's Reykjavik City now has a bao bun food truck. There was demand created by bar patrons wanting food.
The food truck offers 4 fillings for the buns along with condiments (some strong flavours). A waffle is also
on the current menu.
