It’s time to go to the Fabulous Food Show and get a fix for my other hobby, eating. The timing of the show was perfect. We got our fall yard work done last week. This is a great reward, a billion square feet of food samples and a wine and beer sampling area. Throw in Michael Symon and a bunch of other Food Network stars and all was well with the world for at least one day.
Pat worked the beer sampling area Friday. She got a free ticket for it. That had humorous consequences later when we saw Michael Symon do his stand up routine. Since I paid for my ticket, I got an assigned seat. Pat had to fight it out with the masses for a seat. I showed my solidarity with her and stood in her line until they let the reserved seats in. I waved her a kiss and said: “see ya.”
Wouldn't it be nice if gourd vines were this nice and neat, short too. But alas, I know how long and big they get. It's not going to stop us. we plan to plant all our decrative gourds and pumpkins.
As we were walking by the garden, Pat wondered out loud whether I had seen the Sweet Peet sign. Seen the sweet peet sign? I never miss a chance to give that most wonderful of Ohio products a shout out. Seen the sign? I'm putting it in my post.
Well ya know, he was tall. Is that prairie grass growing on Old Abe's head?
We made sure that we stopped by every local vendor.
The Ohio Apple Growers Association conducted apple tastings. We were rewarded with bottles of Ohio apple cider. We went back twice.
The Iron Chef waxes eloquently about his favorite food, Ohio-raised pork.
