Weekend Edition: Louisville Kentucky

I am in Louisville, Kentucky for the first time in my life.  At least I don't remember visiting here before.  

I think of accents, fried chicken, mint juleps and fancy hats.  Oh yea, did I mention horses? 

I am staying downtown for a work conference but things are quite happening around here. This weekend starts the kick off of the two week festival, Rolling Thunder, leading up to the Kentucky Derby.  Hopefully I will be able to make it out to Churchill Downs.  


I wish I could come back and actually see the race. I always get mesmerized by the race.  Horses are some incredible creatures. But Kentucky for some people is known for other things...

I saw the real life suit wore by Mr. KFC and he was one little man. I don't think he ate too much of his own food.



And clearly I don't drink all that much because I forgot all about the bourbon.

This is what I was up to this week:

Chocolate Bundt Cake with Chocolate Sour Cream Glaze - massive fail in terms of appearance but it sure did taste wonderful


Balsamic Chicken



Spring Pasta Salad and WIAW


Shrimp and Asparagus




Friday's Favorites Fun Things
