Traveling in Western Kentucky

The hubby, GJ, attended a meeting at Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park, Wednesday - Friday. AJ skipped the last 2 days of school and we tagged along. Oops! Did I really say that?

Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley are two very large lakes in Western Kentucky located about 5 hours from our home.
Above is the back side of Kentucky Dam Village Resort Lodge looking out over Kentucky Lake. The "boys" did a little fishing and boating on the lake while we were there.

We also visited our favorite restaurant in Kentucky. Patti's 1880's Settlement, located at Grand Rivers, KY in the Land Between the Lakes.
Patti's is much more than an award-winning restaurant. Check it out here. AJ is in the photo above with a loaf of bread baked in a clay flower pot, and served with whipped butter and strawberry butter. You will have to look on their website to see the 2-inch thick pork chops. We were already eating ours before I remembered my camera!
Patti's pies are sooo yummy! During two different meals, we sampled the Coconut Cream (above) and Lemon Meringue "mile-high" Pies, Mr. Bill's Boatsinker (chocolate) Pie served with coffee ice cream, and the amazing Sawdust Pie served warm with sliced bananas and whipped cream.

Glad you had such a grand time playing hookie. ha

Those pies look 'to die for'. Wish I had a piece of the lemon one. Oh well. The scales this morning said I didn't need one.
