Let's end this somewhat sunny Monday with an EaterWire dedicated entirely to food truck matters, shall we?

MEALS ON WHEELS—Over at Seattlest, Jenise Silva says Skillet maestro Josh Henderson is harkening back to his pre-Airstream days of catering for photo shoots. Except this time Henderson has a new non-Airstream truck, known as Skillet Squared, that will be used for"craft services on photo and film shoots around town." Most recently Skillet Squared was at UW to feed the cast and crew of in-production film 21 and Over. [Seattlest]
BELLTOWN MEALS ON WHEELS—Speaking of craft services, Eater received a few reports of a new food truck in Belltown, courtesy of Giles Catering. Alas, it turns out the truck was also catering for a movie shoot, says owner Beckie Giles, and not able to sell anything to passersby. [EaterWire]
MEALS ON WHEELS—Chris Werner introduces the good people of Seattle to The Frandy Bar, "a truck dedicated solely to frizzled sweets and savories." The Mt. Vernon-based truck has made the round of area festivals this summer, selling fried cakes, candy bars, fried pickles, and even fried peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The truck's swan song is at Bumbershoot this weekend, but it will resurface in April. [Seattle Met]
