Wednesday's are Fantastic for a couple of reasons.  It's only a few more days until the weekend and its the Funky Mango Food Truck FREE Food giveaway!

We delivered the final Free Food Giveaway for the summer to the staff at the Ross Creek Dental office.

Shannon sent in this nomination:

Hey Andrew, I am sending in a nomination for the Funky Mango. I work in a dental office with the funnest group of girls ever. With eight girls you’d expect some friction- but we all have the greatest respect for one another and can all call each other friends.  They are a hard working group and deserve a yummy lunch at the Mango.

Thank-you
Shannon J

Thanks Shannon and I hope you and the rest of the staff enjoyed your Free Lunch.

Also a big thank you to the Funky Mango food Truck for a great summer season of Food.  You still have time to see them this week until Friday on 103rd street downtown Fort Saskatchewan.  Try the new creations, the Tony Bolonga Burger (Inspired by Tony Stacey) or the Cream of Garlic Soup----Inspired by yours truly.

Conquer your appetite with the Tony Bologny Burger from the Funky Mango Food Truck.

Yes, it is a massive burger for those with massive appetites and a hankering for fried bologna.

If you are from the East Coast like I am (Newfoundland and Labrador to be exact), you may have grown up eating a fare share of fried bologna.

During a conversation with Maxine and Harold at the Funky Mango Food Truck I started to talk about bologna and how I thought it might be good perched upon one of their delicious burgers and so the idea was born.

The Tony Bologny Burger is a homemade ground beef burger patty topped with thick mozzarella cheese, a large slice of fried bologna, covered in caramelized onions, lathered in garlic aioli sauce on a pretzel baked bun. Yes...it is delicious and very filling.

The Funky Mango wraps up their regular season food truck operation this Friday (August 29th) so don't hold out if you want to order this burger. If you become a fan and want to see it as a special menu item for next season let Maxine and Harold know. It might just become the Tony Bologny Burger Tuesday Special.

Let them know via Twitter @funkymango11

Here is a video of Harold and I cooking up some Tony Bologny Burgers. His looked better than mine but I'm pretty sure they both tasted awesome!



Special thanks to Harold and Maxine for inviting over to put this together. We had a blast and we left with the tanks full. I still think it's really cool to have a burger inspired and named after me.

Also thanks to Andrew for coming along and doing a great job on capturing it all on video.

Ryan's Ice Bucket Challenge

I was hoping I'd get nominated for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and yesterday Jennifer from Associated Telecom gave me the nod.

I have actually been quite aware of the disease for several years and have made a couple small donations when I could. One of my favorite guitar players, Jason Becker, was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's Disease in 1991 and was told he only had a few years to live. Now, in 2014 Jason Becker is still writing music with his eyes through a special computer program, all of which could blow most artists nowadays out of the water.

I was happy to be nominated and made sure to ask for extra ice!



Remember any donation is a HUGE help and you can make one at als.ca.

Cooling off with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

It's been catching on faster than a cold in the school yard in September.

The ALS Ice Bucket challenge. For weeks celebrities and regular folks alike have been splashing freezing ice water upon themselves to help spread awareness and support for those suffering with ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease). ALS is a progressive neuromuscular disease in which nerve cells die and leave voluntary muscles paralyzed.

Many people have already taken the challenge in Fort Saskatchewan as was evident by Councillor Frank Garritsen who was recently issued the challenge and made one of his own.
