I'll hook you up Josh

I need to have a word with my resident preparer of veggie burritos and will PM you a recipe --totally kickass and guaranteed not to disappoint, and I'm sure others will have ideas of their own. Just give me a few hours and keep an eye on your inbox...

As to tour food, some of my buddies had this whole veggie stirfry deal going --made an absolute fortune over the five days at Alpine in '88 and took the act down to St. Pete on fall tour, when I helped 'em out over in the camping area located in a residential area about a mile from the gig in those vacant lots with the alleys crisscrossing them.

They had a magnificent setup --off the beaten path, they'd boil up mountains of white rice out back of the car and then fill a gigantic cooler with it and another with chopped veggies (carrots, cabbage, onions, bean sprouts, pea pods and mushrooms), take it over Shakedown way and wok it up on a Coleman grill.

A dollar got you a snack-sized serving on a paper plate, and for two bucks you got a meal's worth. Quality eats, too --what a racket LOL!

you could always buy the fine cookbook referenced above, but meanwhile, you might want to ask this question over in the Sat Down to My Supper topic. So far we've got pizza sauce, chili, masala, and various other delights, but no burritos, so you might as well try!

"Meat On a Stick!"

Beside veggie burritos, I used to love the PB and banana sandwiches folks would sell in the parking lots. A favorite moment though, was coming out after a show to be greeted by folks hawking t shirts, veggie burritos, cold beers, and the one my buddies and I still laugh about "meat on a stick!" Not kebabs, not skewered chicken or beef tips, but "meat on a stick!"

Kind Veggie Burritos

Thanks for the link to Beth's cookbook! I keep trying to get her here, but she is SO BUSY!!! She still has a few on hand for sale, just FYI. Strange coincidence......I just saw one for sale on eBay a day or 2 ago.....they had my name spelled wrong so I emailed them and they corrected it!!!

And she's pulling in the driveway........

Yes I did

I sold "Sunshine Stew", at Alpine Valley. in the '80's. It was a blend of every fruit my friend Amy and I could find, chopped into bite size peices, kept cold with freezer packs and ice, then sold by the cup, and after the fruit was gone we sold the juice. The sale went very well and it was healthy, fun and I met soooo many cool people! That is my business name now and it always brings back such awesome memories.
