get up stand up

Chill out. Grill out. Everyone loves to grill, right? It’s finally nice out enough to light up the grill, and relax on the deck with family and friends. Lucky for you we have a grilling class coming up on Tuesday, April 7 and we have some spots left with your name on it! Whether you have never touched a grill in your life, or maybe you’re a grill master chief, this class will be so fun for you! Grab a pal or spouse or dad (what dad doesn’t love to grill?) and sign up HERE. Maybe it could be an early mother’s day or father’s day gift? Boom. Already done. Any questions about it, shoot us an email to rootsfarmfood@gmail.com

We’ll be uptown today for TACO DAY! Across from the Duke building, at Tryon & Levine Ave of the Arts. What a superb day to eat outside too!

What the peep?

So some of you have probably heard about Peeps milk. If you’re a curious George type, you’ve tried it. It seems that you either love peeps or you don’t. I’m not a fan, but that doesn’t keep me from thinking up crazy ways we could incorporate this marshmallow milk phenomenon into our menu. I’m thinking a chocolate marshmallow milk infused pancake in the shape of a bunny topped with pastel tie-dye colored marshmallow creme. That’s festive right? I don’t think the chefs will go for it.

In other non-peep-related news…both trucks will be venturing out today! Uptown (across from Duke building) and Innovation Park (7201 Hewitt Associates Dr). Don’t let this gloomy weather stop you from grabbing some Trout Po Boy Sliders or Chicken Enchiladas from Roots! They’ll turn that frown upside down.

Almost forgot! Tomorrow we will be at 2 locations for lunch. One will be a new Friday spot at 2201 Water Ridge Parkway. The other is a one-time event at Providence Baptist Church. So we hope you’ll put Roots on your lunch calendar for tomorrow. Lunch calendar ha. Does anyone have one of those?
