Home Street Home


It helps the work day go faster when you can have a picnic with friends. Thank you to the food truck partnership in St. Paul that has organized #lunchbytheriver on Thursdays!

food trucks

Our lunches came from Home Street Home. Started in 2011, their St. Paul-based truck provides gourmet food made from scratch using fresh local ingredients. We sat on a bench overlooking the Mississippi River while we ate.

This vegetarian Hummus Gyro was a messy delight, at least that’s what she said when she ate it:

Hummus Gyro (w/chips): our own scratch made hummus, red peppers, red onions, cucumber and tzatziki sauce folded up in warm pita bread

The Best-Good Friend really liked the coleslaw on her pulled pork sandwich:

Pulled Pork Sandwich (w/chips): pork slow roasted in India Pale Ale , topped with our own BBQ sauce and crispy citrus coleslaw on a butter toasted bun

This sandwich made me think jam should be mandatory when serving grilled cheese:

My Grilled Four Cheese Sandwich (w/chips): provolone, Colby jack, sharp cheddar and Havarti w/raspberry & jalapeno jam

With lunches like these, I might have to picnic in the park every Thursday.
