The end of summer. How is it upon us? It seems the kids were just getting out of school, and now it’s the beginning of August already. Sigh.
One thing I welcome this time of the summer though? Peaches. They are truly delicious right now. Last week, my brother and sister-in-law were kind enough to host us at their lake home in Table Rock, Missouri. We were only a short distance from the Arkansas border, which means Arkansas peaches!
I was feeling inspired.
Last week, I was asked to tell you all about a super fun event going on at World’s Of Fun in Kansas City. The event will be held on Saturday, August 13th, and it’s a FOOD TRUCK FRENZY!
I couldn’t wait to share all of the details with you – but I also wanted to share a recipe, (well — because that’s what we do, right?) and I decided to give it some thought. I asked myself, “when I think of food trucks, what foods come to mind?” My first thought was TACOS. My second thought was churros — have you ever visited The Churro Truck in Omaha? Lastly, I thought about BBQ.
Back in April, my hubby and I went to the All American BBQ & Brew Festival held at Worlds of Fun. We had a great time, and when I came home I did this great round up for you, 20 Recipes YOU can make with a bottle of BBQ. I decided to let my mind wander and come up with something inspired by both tacos and churros!

They were a perfect summery dessert.

What sorts of foods do YOU think of when you think “Food Truck?”
We are ready to make our Peaches ‘n Cream Tacos! Here is a stack of flour tortillas cut into 3.5″ rounds. You can use a biscuit or round cookie cutter, or like me, a wide mouth mason jar lid and a pastry wheel. That will give it that scalloped edge.
Frying them is easy – but it goes quickly, so be prepared!
