Saturday, Keyalus and I loaded up our strollers and headed to the Taste of Smyrna. As you can imagine I am all about the “tastes.” After enjoying the Taste of Marietta earlier this spring, I had high hopes for this one. Although it wasn’t as big, I still found a couple of treats. See pics below along with my super-complicated rating system.
What’s not pictured is a fried green tomato with pimento cheese and (I think it was) horseradish. It was yummy (4 stars) and I totally plan on recreating that in my kitchen.
It was great spending time with Keyalus and Lewis. It’s crazy that her little guy is walking since I remember the day he was born. He’s still a sweetie even though he was straight up mean muggin Foxy. I believe, however, that one day they will be best buds.
The only downside to the day was making my way to the car and discovering I didn’t have my car keys. It was hot, I was tired and so was baby. Thankfully, a Smyrna fire and rescue dude overheard me talking about my lost keys. He said a woman had turned some in to a police officer. Unfortunately, said officer was called away to a police chase with my keys in his pocket. So I had to wait a bit before he returned.
I won’t tell you how I lost my keys. They were never lost. I left them on the trunk of my car and someone turned them in so my car wouldn’t be stolen.
Overall it was a great afternoon. I’m looking forward to getting a few more festivals before the season is over!
