Jay's hard at work securing our cart. Thanks to Mom and Dad Scott for helping us make our food cart dream come true. I'm currently of little help, as I am in Den Haag, Netherlands. I'm visiting my sister, who lives here, and meeting my new nephew. The travel plans were made shortly before we knew about Mark's Carts and our part in the new food cart garden opening in Ann Arbor. This all has been a whirlwind development for us, an exciting whirlwind development.
Jay has Mama Maria and Papa T helping him perfect our paella while I'm away. I'm sure they both are also listening to him list all the things we have to get done in the few short weeks until Mark's Carts and Debajo del Dol opens. Along with our primarily Spanish cart, we will be throwing in some of Mama Maria's specialties along the way. Mama Maria is my mom. She was born in Sicily. I was raised on her authentic Sicilian cuisine. I guess we'll be playing a little with the Catalan and Sicilian culinary crossover. One thing I remember well about some of the Catalan cuisine was the familiarity of some of the flavors and textures.
Well, before I get too long winded and before I go tour another museum in Den Haag today, I'll leave you all with the press release we received for Mark's Carts:
