FA MILY NIGHT! Week 2 SUNDAY Sunflour Baking Company does the impossible and bakes homemade poptarts—flaky pie-dough filled with either blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, strawberry or Nutella. You'll never go back to the boxed kind again. MAC AND CHEESE MONDAY Enjoy a mac and cheese overload at JackBeagle's, with six variations of the childhood staple. There's Classic Mac topped with bacon bits; spicy Mexi-Mac with jalapeños, tomatillos, and Monterey Jack cheese; or the fan favorite Jack- Mac loaded with enough garlic to keep your family safe from vampires for the night . TUESDAY Spend your lunch break with Charlotte's No. 1 rated Yelp food stand: Vic the Chili Man. Go with a hot dog loaded with homemade chili or whatever creative special dog of the day Vic's concocted. WEDNESDAY The Dish's pot roast is so good, you'll think your grandma spent the entire day in their kitchen preparing it—housecoat and all! THURSDAY What the Fries food truck makes the fried side a main dish by loading them down with toppings like steak, shrimp hibachi and crab Rangoon. Prefer your fries more plain jane? They do that, too. Test them with a variety of dipping sauces like blackberry ketchup, garlic mayo or their housemade Yumm Yumm sauce (similar to a shrimp sauce). FRIDAY Try a French-inspired take on one of your favorite childhood comfort foods—the ham and cheese sandwich—with Café Monte's Croque Monsieur. The open-faced sandwich is served with a housemade Dijon béchamel, ham, and both mozzarella and Swiss cheeses, all finished in the oven for that melty, gooey goodness. SATURDAY Tupelo Honey stacks up two interpretations of the classic BLT sandwich: One with fried chicken breast, apple cider bacon, dijonnaise, lettuce and tomato and the other with pimento cheese, apple cider bacon, smoked jalapeño aioli and a fried green tomato. SWEET TREAT Frozen cookie dough on a stick? Yes, please! Ninety's Ice Cream & Sandwiches freezes cookie dough, dips it in chocolate, and then tops it with a variety of options such as brownie crumbles, M&Ms or Thin Mints Girl Scout Cookies. PHOTO BY KYO H.
