#EatKentucky Featured Photo: Today is the start of something new in the Weekly Miscellany. Kentucky food is a big topic, and through social media you can see how people from across the Commonwealth Eat Kentucky. My plan is to select a weekly photo from Instagram or Twitter that well illustrates how people Eat Kentucky. Tag your Kentucky food photos with #EatKentucky to make it more likely that I’ll see it.
The first #EatKentucky Featured Photo is from Nikki Bradley (follow her on Instagram) whose mama made a fine looking apple pie as a substitute for a birthday cake. Anytime someone picks pie over cake I’m a supporter. Thanks for the beautiful picture, Nikki, and thanks Nikki’s mama for a beautiful Kentucky pie! (Photo published with permission.)
