If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/19/12

It’s the start of a new week. I had a great weekend. Friday was my 16th wedding anniversary. My husband had extra work at night every night last week and through Saturday night, dealing with conventions for work, so we didn’t get to celebrate until after he was finished Saturday night, when we caught up on some episodes of Blue Bloods from last season, to today, when we’re going to play cards, watch more TV, and geet Chinese takeout for dinner. Plus, some great new TV. 🙂 So check out what we think you should be watching. (Oh, and Megan, I hope the next time you eat sushi, you don’t order it from Kansas! You know we aren’t known for our seafood! *snicker*)

One of my favorite Food Network series starts again tonight. The Great Food Truck Race takes eight teams of food truck chefs and has them compete to win $50,000. This season, though, there’s a twist: it’s no longer a competition between teams that already own their own food trucks. All eight teams have a dream, a concept, and the culinary skills needed. But none of them have a food truck of their own. This season, they are provided a vehicle for the race, and only the grand prize winner gets to keep their food truck and the $50,000 cash prize. With everything from authentic Aussie barbecue to signature Korean-style sausages and everything in between, teams start at Long Beach, California and continue through the finale at the West Quoddy Lighthouse in Maine, the easternmost point of the United States.

On tonight’s episode, “3559 Miles to a Dream,” host Tyler Florence greets eight new teams in Long Beach, California; the competitors journey to Los Angeles, where they are challenged to an epic battle in one of the most ruthless environments for food truck entrepreneurs.

See how the new changes affect the show tonight on Food Network at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Great Food Truck Race @ Clicker.
