Today's Wonder of the World is...Meals on Wheels!

No, not the nationwide program to bring meals to the homebound, though it certainly deserves its own special post as a Wonder of the World. I've done a Meals on Wheels route for years and love my clients dearly. I must blog about that one of these days.
But today I'm honoring the other kind of Meals on Wheels: the chuckwagon! Just call me Cookie.
(Technically that's the name for the chef, but I like to pretend.)
We can fix you up with the slightly bored hot dog man above, or go vegetarian if you like.

How about an eggroll?

Or a taco?

I bet their tamales are out of this world.

One of my favorite bakeries sells its tamales at construction sites all over Greer via a vending truck. How I wish it would drive through my neighborhood! If they'd just ring a little bell, I'd come running!
Just like we did in France.

Technically they didn't ring a bell. Neither did they drive through my quartier. Nor did we come running. (What a liar I am!) We drove to the pizza trucks parked all over Clermont Ferrand.
Can you believe it? A wood burning oven in a truck?

It's true. And the pizza was REMARKABLE!
Here's a seafood one. Yum.

Maybe I need to put on my readers, but that one looks to be just shrimp and mushroom, hold the octopus and squid, hold the traditional egg in the middle. My friend Silicon Valley Diva recently got me thinking about French pizza, and how leftovers from the seafood version smelled up the fridge. But it's so, so good when it's hot!
Notice the slightly burned edges. That's a must from a wood fired pizza truck oven. Crispy, yet chewy. Yum.
And for dessert?

Have a wonder-full Friday and a super weekend everyone!
Get your dimes (dollars?) ready! Summer's coming soon!
