Kentucky - Part two with the Pix

This is the famed Kentucky Hot Brown that Elizabeth over at Table for Five was wondering about. Here it is in all of it's glory. I looked up several recipes for it online and was going to link to them but none of them were quite right in my opinion, Bobby Flay's being the least right of all. So without a real recipe, let me say that a Kentucky Hot Brown is essentially this: Bread, ham, turkey,sliced tomatoes, smothered in a cream sauce that is cheesy, covered in shredded cheese (Bobby Flay alleges Parmesan cheese - I have never seen this) and then bacon. They put it in the oven until the bacon crisps and the shredded cheese on top melts into a crust. Can you FEEL your arteries hardening?
I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of the much longed for beer cheese as well. Oh well.

This is me on our Friday night excursion to SHAMROCKS with one of my favorite people in the world Tom. Tom used to be our boss at Galls and now he's the Grand Poobah at Aramark Uniform Services. He's also an honorary Uncle to my boys, along with Paul and Scott - yes Uncles I WILL get their hair cut some day. My pictures of Paul and Scott didn't turn out apparently (I took them with Michele's camera and they were apparently too dark). That's what happens when you start taking pictures after the Makers and coke get flowing.

And so there is no doubt why I was there, this is the memorial at the airport. I wasn't sure what to think or feel standing there. It seemed surreal and made me terribly edgy to be there. I suppose you aren't supposed to feel comfortable at a place like that.

Blogger continues to try me, so I will post up one last set of pics on one last post!

But, except for the bacon, it's not even brown! I was expecting some kind of brown gravy. What an odd name for what sounds like a delicious dish. Nope, no calories in that sucker!
