Load up a child, any child, and head to lunch.

So it's cold enough that Minneapolis schools are closed for the day (though not St. Paul schools, you hardy lot!) and you want to take this opportunity to put on all the clothes in your closet and never leave the woolly cocoon of your bed. Besides, your car probably wouldn't start anyway.

But if you happen to be out and about, and you happen to have a young Minneapolitan in tow, Blue Plate Restaurant Group is offering free food to any school-sprung tot with a paying grown-up.

Wyoming-based "West Mex" chain Taco John's knows the secret to wooing Minnesotans is tater tots. Taco John's may call them Potato Oles, but there's no fooling the inventors of the tater tot hot dish. We all know the company's fried potato rounds are just slightly smaller tater tots waiting to be drowned in nacho cheese or stuffed in a burrito.

From what we can tell, the new comedy Tammy, starring Melissa McCarthy of Bridesmaids fame, has very little to do with tater tots. A woman who loses her job, car, and husband in one day copes by taking an epic road trip with her grandmother (played by Susan Sarandon).

All the same, fans of these crispy little potato nuggets will appreciate the tater tot giveaway that's hitting Minneapolis this Sunday to help promote the film. Does it have to make sense when free tots are involved?

Food trucks are known for inventing unique flavor concoctions, especially in Minnesota, where the warm months bring out State Fair favorites like camel burgers and fried lamb testicles. But despite our familiarity with bizarre ingredients, baby food never struck us as a suitable focal point for food truck cuisine.

On June 13, however, our preconceived notions will be thrown out the window when New York-based baby food company Beech-Nut serves a variety of dishes featuring three new baby food flavors.
