I hit the road this weekend for a quick trip south to Lexington. The weather was warm, the leaves were turning, and I wanted to check out the Incredible Food Show 2011 sponsored by Kentucky Proud. So glad I did.
More than 100 Kentucky food vendors displayed their wares, with samples available in abundance.
I also got to indulge my inner food nerd by attending demos like the Heritage Meats Master Class, featuring this Katahdin lamb.
At the last minute I decided to stay overnight in Lexington and treat myself to dinner.

And this morning I meandered into nearby Bluegrass horse country for brunch.

Oh, and I got to meet these boys, too.

More reports to come. Meanwhile, hope your weekend was as inspiring as mine was.
