The Calm before the Storm

Yes I know I haven’t written in a couple of days. In all honesty I just needed some time to myself. We got the food truck out this weekend, Saturday August 11th for my birthday. And then Sunday was the day of rest and family. Today we are doing Taco Tuesday! $1 beef, chicken or smoked pork tacos! This week we are preparing ourselves for the flood of students that are about to be in town. Already we are experiencing kids going down the one ways in the opposite direction, stopping in the middle of the street, making a left hand turn from the right hand lane… The craziness is here. We’ve been in a slow period with the business this past week and look forward to the sudden rush I hope to get very soon. We have a lot of new and exciting things about to happen. First the expansion of our menu. I finally found my niche, modernising soul food. So you better believe my menu will reflect my mad skills very soon. Today we are adding a few items on the menu. Cajun mac and cheese, smoked pork, smoked chicken or fried chicken nachos, berry pie and bacon burgers. I have to say that we are truly blessed. We were finally able to get some Financial backing and some help to take this dream off the ground. I guess our hard work and pure determination is finally helping people to realize that this is a real thing we are doing. Even though we didn’t have tens of thousands of dollars to start a restaurant, it’s not impossible. Yes we drained our bank accounts, yes we went in the hole for a moment and yes we cried Blood Sweat and Tears. But two single moms with multiple children, lack of funds and pure will can make a dream happen. We are making it happen. And if anything I’ll teach my kids you can do anything you put your mind to. Never give up. We still have a very long road ahead of us but we are one step closer to making this happen.. and successfully at that. I’d like to thank the people who have stepped up to help us over the past week. Y’all are amazing. Truly. Not only with the help of funding we have also accumulated an amazing mentor. So shout out to Alex for helping our dreams come true. We truly appreciate you. It’s people like him who are helping to make this world go round. We need more people like you.
