OK, The Bushie delegation is safe on Louisville. We enjoyed a great Italian dinner at Rockies on the River in Jeffersonville, Indiana this evening.

One of the Buckeye members will be added to the Brown Hotel group tomorrow evening thats to the efforts of Poverty Pete. We know now that we can bring young folks into the Brown without violating an age limit rule.
It is raining..rather hard at the moment...but It is due to pass by shortly and the forecast is for colder but semi-sunny weather for the rest of the weekend.
Things are looking good for the overall weekend schedule!! See you All Soon. Photos will be posted starting after the Brown Hotel session tomorrow.

That's Cool too! Thanks Randi.

The Bushie's left this morning to go to Mrs Bushie's family home in Evansville. They will meet with Seafarer and PovertyPete later today and tomorrow Morning. My dogs are heartbroken, but they will recover when the Bushies return Saturday evening.
We are doing their dishes, then getting set for the Hot Brown tonite. Bring a coat, It seems that whatever bad weather may happen will pass to the South of Louisville and Owensboro tomorrow, but it will be "brisk" with a high in the upper 20's.
UPDATE- 2:00PM Friday-
Paul is approaching Louisville..Iwwanngo will arrive by air in an hour or so...Lynn from Oxford,Ohio is just leaving, driving down. Haven't heard from One-Iron, but will assume that Beemer is on the way from Atlanta! Bright Sun and cold here now. It is going to be a great weekend.
Film at Eleven!

I am so envious of you lucky people headed for the Glee Club Meeting. (for the fellowship as much as the food) I'll just have to live vicariously through your reports and pictures until I get to retire and eat my way through all the wonderful places I'm learning about on Roadfood...Bon Apetit! (ok, so French doesn't exactly go with BBQ, but you get the idea...)

I drove down and picked up our last door prize this afternoon. (It was made just today.) I had been so afraid I wouldn't be able to get it, as they had originally told me they wouldn't have any ready until next week. Talk about cutting it close! See everyone tomorrow afternoon.

HOT BROWN REPORT Friday Evening Louisville, KY

The opening session of the Glee Club Convention was called to order by the Mayor at 6:00 PM this evening at the Brown Hotel in Louisville. Attending were The Mayor and Mrs. Mayor, One-Iron and Mrs. One-Iron, Ians Mom and her son and her friend, Sundancer, Iwannago, PCDiva, and Poverty Pete's friend Lynn.



We were seated in the Thoroughbred Lounge in very attractive surroundings. Most of the group ordered the traditional HOT BROWN Sandwich, the keystone of the 'light menu' at this landmark Hotel.



We enjoyed the meal, but even more the light banter and conversation that brought about the kind of friendliness that these meetings have generated in the past.



Now to get to the Moonlite tomorrow and show One-iron a real Kentucky feast

National weather service for Louisville and Owensboro says light snow, less than an inch at those two locations, with more to the south, ending by NOON. We will leave here about 11:00 AM to head to Owensboro.
Sundancer just called me from I-64 as he progresses west from Louisville. He reports light snow with some on the road.
Be Careful, We'll see you there.

OK, I'll go first. I will get to the food, but to begin with, being a Glee Club plankowner, I'd like to say that this was the best meeting yet. If only Pogo had made it, it would have been perfect...well, except for the weather.
On to the food. The burgoo was good, but too salty. I liked the slaw, but not the potato salad. On the hot line, corn and broccoli casserole were very good. Of the meats, I liked the mutton better than on previous visits, but I still prefer the beef. I thought the best meat was the pork rib. If you were fortunate enough to grab one of the catfishes from the night before, you get extra points. The catfish alone was worth the price of admission. Rhubarb pie is uncommon, especially without strawberries. They did a fine job with it, and the custard was good.
If I were a judge, I would award best of show to Al and Janet for all their hard work, and the runner-up would be our host, Pat, for his tolerance and patience.
On a personal note, I would like to thank Louis for donating a copy of his Duncan Hines recipe book, which fell to me in the doorprizes, and Fred Sauceman for the ramp jam, which I have never heard of, but looking forward to trying. In general, I thought the doorprizes were imaginative and much appreciated.
Oneiron, I hope you like the burger at Buster's, on your way home.
Louis

I had a great time, too. Glad you are enjoying the book, Pete. For those who don't know, Pete's book is a hardback reprint of the 1955 edition of "Adventures in Good Cooking," which is comprised of hundreds of stupendously good (and rich) recipes from the restaurants that Duncan Hines made famous in the 1930s and 1940s in his annual restaurant guidebook ("Adventures in Good Eating") when he was serving the function that Jane and Michael Stern do for us today. It's interesting if you'd like to see what people were eating in restaurants back then; many of the dishes included in it are hard to find today. If anyone is interested in getting a copy of Pete's book, or the other book I offered as a door prize, "Duncan Hines' Dessert Book," let me know and I'll get you the information to get a copy for yourself. Anyway, the Moonlite festivities were over way too soon. I'll try to make myself available for another one of these events if I can get away. In the meantime, I'm going to have my doorprizes for breakfast: Poverty Pete's bacon, and Sundancer's cajun coffee. I'm sure I won't be disappointed!

Sunday Morning
Tbe Bushie's and the Bowen's are meeting Seafaer John and Gail for a Brunch at Claudia Sander's Dinner House in Shelbyville, KY. This will give Seafaer a chance to enjoy a "send-off" as he and his wife head back to the rigors of life in the frozen Northeast !! (The air temperature here this morning is 9 degrees!!!)

Full report will appear shortly.

What a wonderful way to spend a few hours!
Louis - it was great talking with you over our meal. I'll head over to your website for the books!
Al and Janet - Thank you so very much for being our gracious MCs and making me feel so very welcome.
Sundancer - careful around that popcorn! Thanks for making my evening at the Brown hotel truly memorable!
I had such a great time talking with all of you! Next time we'll have to switch around so we can meet up with new people more "in depth"

I liked the Burgoo - still can't tell how it's different from Brunswick Stew.
I thought the mutton was great, very tender and didn't need any extra sauce.
Fried apples were my dessert and they were great, not all syrupy, just baked through. YUM.

I hope all who are travelling have a safe journey home. I didn't make it to the Beaver Dam cafe this morning, the demolition derby in the hotel parking lot made it too hard to sleep last night! I'll be thinking about the wonderful time I had all the way home tomorrow!

Hugs,
Alice

I sincerely cannot tell all of you that attended the Moonlite BBQ. It was super meeting all of you.

I am very proud that Fred SaucemanS atteneded our event.

As always, it was super to see Bushie, Mrs. Bushie, Al and Janet, my first visit with Seafarer and Mrs Seafarer who indicated that he was glad to see that I did not have horns, One iron and Debbie, Ians mom and all the rest of you.

These types of events add to the wonderful social events that occur in the world. I am just glad to be a part of them.

I am sorry that I could not hang around for the door prizes last evening. I wannago had a flight out of Nashville and we had to depart a little early.

Those that may have got some of my door prizes, I hope you enjoy.

I wish to say that the Roadfood group is super. I am glad to see it grow from 5 to 11 to better than 30. Somehow, I believe it will grow to 50 next year.

Mr. Mayor, thanks to you, this event worked out super. The Moonlite was great and their veggies, BBQ and desserts was outstanding. thanks to your contriubution..

The event was super and so was you and Janet.

Bushie, I wish I could have spent more time with you. Your Hawaiian. shirt looked great with your undershirts

To the rest of you, thanks for attending. I personally enjoyed my visitation with each and every one of you.

I wish I knew where we were going next year??????

Is Dreamaland in Huntsville a possibility???

Love all of you.

I think that the Kentucky Hot brown at the Brown Hotel is more of a casserole than a sandwich. I think that it was overspiced but extremely tasty. I enjoyed it very much with my roadfood friends.

Paul, there is actually already circulating a rumor that the next Glee Club convention could be ... held... ( I nearly said brought to order, but we all know that's not likely) in Austin. Bushie, how are your organizational skills?

Not to overanalyze Paul, but what are you implying here?


I am not sure what you are implying but I assure you that nothing was intended to make any of my roadfood friends feel bad. Please indicate what your thoughs were her. I assure you that I do nothing to offend any of our friends.

I look forward to hearing your comments.

Ahh, fantastic food, putting new faces to familiar names, wonderful hosts, and meeting so many great people, life doesn't get any better!
I loved the mutton, and the Buttermilk pie was to die for.
Thanks to Pat Bosley for all the tours,that smoker is a wonder!
Al and Janet, job WELL done!!!!
