Tammy I didn't realize you're in WA state.  What a coincidence, my daughter invited me to do the last tour on your list next week ... can't wait to enjoy all the great food.  I've already done the first Food Cart tour (twice) and both times, it was such a fun and delicious experience!!

Tammy, for about half a year now, I've really been noticing what different foods are. I've found coconut milk and grass-fed beef and totally love them! Oh, and bacon is still good, too. Wish I was closer to try some of the foods that will be highlighted there!
