The I scream truck goes by here twice a day. The driveway from hell is more than a quarter mile long. I never make it.

When the kids were little we stopped the I scream truck and bought the kids an ice cream each. When one of the kids licked hers the ice cream fell off the cone onto the lawn, so we got her another one. The next morning the ice cream was still sitting on the lawn. There was something deeply disturbing about ice cream that can sit all night in summer time and not melt:) JayInOz

If it were a manly car, it would have taken the missed shift and not broken. ;)

I imagine a bit of high revs in first gear, then a long shift to third, accompanied by a engine lugging sound. ;)

The last time I caught the truck I sort of wish I hadn't. A novelty bar, something that would cost a dollar in any normal place, was $5.50! And dude (owner/operator) had a tip jar too. . . yeah, right.

Too bad for muscle boy.

My kids have dog hearing when it comes to the Ice Cream Truck. They run up to me and breathlessly ask for money at least a minute before I can hear the jingly tune he plays.

That looks tasty, what is it, exactly?

At harvest time around here, roasted corn and corn and pumpkin chowder are a , Big Deal, but sold at roadside stands, not on trucks. ( Pics stolen from local paper's website)

Grilled corn.
The corn is grilled, then spread with mayonnaise, sprinkled with cotija cheese (or feta), coated with chili powder, and splashed with lime juice.

It sounds horrific, but it's so good.

Dude. Please trust me. I resisted for half my life and now I regret it deeply.

Some people boil the corn. That is a sin against corn. Don't do it. Grill the corn. :)

I have some of the most delicious homemade chili powder for them, too.

Peace,
Robert

What varieties of chili do you grow Rob?
It is good to hear you say delicious rather than hot, I dont mind hot, but delicious is more important.

The wife and I stopped recently at a sweet shop just east of the town of Lithgow. The place was packed with every kind of sweet treat you could imagine, and in the middle of the store was a selection of mostly American barbecue seasonings. One that caught my eye was "Scorpions Sting- Stupidly Hot Barbecue Sauce" I'll never know how hot it was- I only have to smell those things and it turns into a scary as hell mini asthma attack type thingy and I can't breathe. Entertaining to watch though apparently:) JayInOz

We do jalapeņos always, because I need them to live. We do Anaheim, Thai, poblano, and Fresno peppers regularly, too, but not in such quantity.
