I said we were done for the year and we are. BUT, the work is far from over. I have tons of scheduling to do for the upcoming year. So far it looks like we have the entire month of April booked. Which is AW-SOME!
So last night as I was checking the LaRositatacos@yahoo.com email, I opened a very special invite to a very special event. We were invited to be one of the food vendors at midamericabikeweek.org special event benefiting disabled veterans and their families. I can not think of a more Honorable event to be invited to.
But can you feel the the BUT, coming?
Yes, there is a BUT. LaRosita is located in the Dallas Fort Worth area, and have been operating in this area. We have never really thought of going too far out of our metro area much less another state. Given, the state of Arkansas, is not very big and Hot springs is only about 4 1/2 hours away from the Dallas area.
4 and a half hours. This would be quite a distance away from our local butcher and our tortilla maker.
Listen, the only way our food and food truck is even a tiny bit successful is because of the fresh fajitas and the fresh and AUTHENTIC flour tortillas that we use. I have said it before and I'll say it again. We would never think of using pre-packaged tortillas of ANY kind. Its kind of - our unspoken motto, Only the freshest for La Rosita.
Of course there are those little inventions called refrigerators and bags if ice. So this leaves me with a decision to make. Do we take a chance and the 4 1/2 hour drive? This event is not until may, so we have some time to think about it. This could be an amazing opportunity for La Rosita but it could also be a HARD HARD trip to make.... we do have three young children after all.
