It was only a month and a half ago that Nashville endured what some folks dubbed the worst ice and snow storm we’ve seen in 20 years; it was only two weeks ago that every man and woman turned to their favorite social media forum to bemoan the 30-degree temperatures and bone-chilling wind; and it was just 10 minutes ago that we found ourselves complaining about the arrival of Nashville’s famous summer heat and humidity.
Yes, in Nashville’s standard spastic style, the weather has lurched from 0-80, but our stomachs are doing surprisingly well with catching up from the change in speed.
Although the official summer solstice hasn’t actually hit us, summer is showing its arrival in different ways: it’s apparent in the droves of people flocking to patios after work to soak up any remaining drizzles of sunlight and tufts of warm air; you can see it in the pops of cherry red and sea foam green as toenails peek out of open-toed shoes; and most importantly it’s showing up on our plates and in our glasses.
Because while the weather screams summer, our bellies are screaming for it too. We’re longing for outside grilling sessions filled with kielbasa, dogs, brats and burgers. We’re hungry for sweet and juicy ‘maters, fresh from the garden, in varying hues of red, yellow, green, orange, and purple. We’re dreaming of freshly brewed and ice-cold sweet tea, a can of cold beer in a cozy koozie, a potent margarita with salt on the rim. But most of all, we want peaches.
And we want them from The Peach Truck.
By jove, we’re gonna get them!
When peach season begins in Mid-May, The Peach Truck will be kickin it with PRB. *Yessss*
It’s a match made in local heaven. This year during peach season The Peach Truck will set up at both Porter Road Butcher shops, once per week, to sell their delicious peaches to the hungry, peach-loving and meat-loving masses.
PRB West: Tuesdays | 11:00am – 2:00pm
PRB East: Fridays | 3:00 – 7:00pm
We’re envisioning all sorts of peachy and meaty deliciousness, so feel free to stay tuned for that. Think like, James and the Giant Peach, plus Chris and the Giant Pork Chop, minus the scene where the peach gets impaled on the Empire State Building.
