June 9th, 2012 – Louisville, KY

While in Louisville we went to the Brown Hotel to try the Hot Brown (which was a winner in a Bobby Flay Throw Down).  It was invented in the 1920s for people who had danced all night at the Brown Hotel and you would have needed to do that to eat it – one sandwich has a pint of cream in the sauce!  It is basically an open-faced turkey sandwich, with mornay sauce, cheese and bacon.  It was pretty good, but since we did not dance all night, we split one.   You can see it in the picture below.  We did our visit the local college thing and went to the University of Louisville to buy a t-shirt (that is where the horse picture is from).  The last thing we did was go to the Louisville Slugger Factory for a tour.  Leslie was so excited with the free bats that we got at the end of the tour.

    I love these posts about Louisville, I feel like you’re touring my hometown! I grew up in Salem, IN – just 35 miles inside “Kentuckiana”. Louisville was where we had to go for shopping, movies, restaurants, etc (yes, I’m from farm country…aka John Mellencamp’s “Small Town”). One of my high school Proms was at the Brown Hotel! So glad you enjoyed what the city has to offer!

    The sandwich looks and sounds DELICIOUS! Wish I had some of those to serve Pauline and Janice tonight. They are coming over to see our pictures of our trip west. Nice pics of the two of you. Keep on enjoying your retirement trip. It all sounds wonderful!
