The Mobile Chowdown

What happened this weekend anyway? This chilly Monday has completely erased all warm thoughts from the past few days. It’s 60 degrees right now, that’s a 30 degree drop from this weekend. My body is in shock.

So I spent the majority of the weekend outside with Caleb. We went to the Mobile Chowdown on Saturday at Seattle Center. It’s a conglomeration of a bunch of food trucks from Seattle and Portland like the Marination Mobile and Koi Fusion. They are all really, really tasty.

Caleb and I settled on Skillet, it was a choice based on what we know of the food and how long the line was. We wanted to go to Koi Fusion and Maximus/Minimus (they have an awesome pig truck), but the lines were too long and exacerbated by the heat.

It also helps that Skillet is served out of an Airstream. I love Airstreams. My family used to have one. It was a more rare one, the shorter version of Skillet’s.

We had the famous burger and fries from Skillet and a strawberry lemonade.

It was expensive for the portions, but the taste was completely worth it. Oh I can’t even describe it, really excellent all around. Loved the fries as well, and I consider myself an amateur fry connoisseur. They were thin cut, with visible potato skin still clinging on. They were seasoned with coarse sea salt and fresh rosemary. I dream about fries like these.

The rest of the day was spent at Canal St. Coffee, which has a glorious deck overlooking the canal.

There be my handsome husband. Isn’t he handsome?

We opted to sit inside right next to some very large open windows and drink Coca Cola and Hales (which, by the way, are $2 every day all day).

And enjoyed the scenery. I didn’t get a worthy photo of the canal, but I did get some photos of the beautiful foliage from around the cafe.

That evening we had BBQ at my brother-in-law’s place and watched Office Space. It’s amazing how quotable that movie is, and how often you hear it referenced in the workplace. Same with The Office.

Who knows what happened to Sunday. I think I went on a walk, tended to my balcony garden, and cleaned. Oh and I made a version of Bulgogi (Korean BBQ), though without a proper BBQ.

Hopefully the rest of this week heats up a little, because 60 isn’t going to cut it. I’d like next weekend to be just as nice as this one.

    Seriously, this temperature drop is crazy! But I think it’s supposed to be in the mid 70s starting tomorrow and through the weekend. Sounds good to me.

    I went to the Ballard seafood festival yesterday, it was great!

    I had to wear a jacket today, after sweating through a couple days last week. That’s just not okay with me!

    Oh, Skillet. It used to be near my work back when I worked down in SoDo and I quite enjoyed it.

    Also, I really love your photos.
