The Food Truck Rocks!

May 18, 2017

Seriously, this food truck gig not only rocks because we just have fun while we’re working, we also have the tunes a playing (A customer asked me yesterday if I could turn the juke box down. He was old.) and the winds were crazy yesterday so we literally rocked in that truck all dang day!

And……it was our busiest Wednesday I think maybe ever! We sold out of everything. Good day at the truck!

Before heading out to the food truck, I made these Egg Cups for breakfast. I guess before making a recipe, you should check to make sure that you have all of the ingredients.


Okay, I didn’t actually have a recipe. Egg Cups are easy. Put your favorite filling ingredients into a muffin pan sprayed with Olive Oil, then top with an egg and bake.

I lined each muffin tin with 1/2 slice of center cut bacon. The bacon didn’t go all the way around the cup. It didn’t need to. I then put Cooked Sweet Potato Spirals (I had these left over from dinner the night before) in the bottom and topped with an egg.


Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Breakfast is served!

Write a review
  1. 6 Eggs
  2. 3 Strips of Oscar Meyer Center Cut Bacon, cut in half
  3. Veggies of your Choice, raw or cooked
  4. Cooking Spray
  1. Spray muffin tins with cooking spray.
  2. Line each muffin tin with 1/2 slice of bacon. The bacon will no likely go all away around the muffin tin. This is fine.
  3. Add cooked or raw veggies to the muffin tin.
  4. Add one egg to each cup.
  5. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
  1. Make sure to count your SmartPoints if you are using any veggies that have a SmartPoints value, like the Sweet Potatoes that I used in this recipe.
The Weight of My Weight

I came home from the food truck with what seemed like an overwhelming list of “to do’s”, so I made my list and sorted out what really needed to be done. I had quite a bit of food in the fridge that I didn’t want to go to waste, so I just started pulling things out of the fridge and got to work. I feel like I haven’t cooked in forever. We have either been eating out or eating salads.

I cooked ground turkey and made Taco Meat. I had a bag of Broccoli Slaw that I tossed in with the Taco Meat. I used to do that a lot and I forgot just how much I liked that.


I roasted Butternut Squash. I washed my strawberries that we won’t eat this week and put them on a cookie sheet in single layer to freeze, then bagged them. I cooked up a big bag of green beans with a little bacon and onions, and unfortunately I did find a few things that I had to toss. I hate to do that!

We were done with dinner by 7:00. then Tucker and I went out to get some steps in.

I got my 12,000 in and even a few extra.


Okay, I’m out the door to work my early At Work WW meeting, then I’ll be Leading the noon meeting today as a Sub at our Merriam, Kansas location if any of you just happen to be attending that meeting.

Have a Happy and Healthy Thursday!

    Slaw really bulks up the meat, doesn’t it?? I love that. I’ve done shredded carrots too. I love that you get that whole pan of meat to yourself!

  4. Yay to a busy Wednesday on the food truck!!!! Makes time move and keeps you busy!!!!

    Kudos on the steps!!!!

  5. I think your winds have headed my way but that is ok because it’s hot and humid today.
    Egg cups look good.

  6. I also enjoy adding slaw to my hamburger meat. Made some last night and love the way have it gives you a large quantity of filling and keeps
    the SPs down. (No one in my family will eat it this way, so I cook their meat and make a separate batch for myself. My goofy men just don’t like their veggies!)
