A (Crowded) Taste of Colorado


Ok, so wonderful food doesn’t ALWAYS have to come from MY kitchen.  Every once and a while, there is a foodie event that gets me excited enough to remove my apron, do my hair, and run out the door.  This time, it was the Taste of Colorado.

If you don’t live in Denver, you may be wondering what all the buzz is about.  The Taste of Colorado is a yearly Denver tradition, marked by huge crowds, heat, live music, and turkey legs.  Giant, hot, delicious turkey legs.  And the line is completely worth the wait.  What happens is that several restaurants come out and show what they’ve got to offer.  You stand in long lines, over pay for tickets that you inevitably have odd numbers of, and you stuff your face.  What was on our menu?

Well, after spending that afternoon at the Rockie’s game and eating (and drinking!) a bunch of junk, we made our way through downtown Denver and had roasted corn on the cob, turkey legs, and ice cream.  And what’s not to love about that?  Now, had I had more time and more money, I would have had some of the other delicious food they had to offer, including food from India’s (the BEST Indian restaurant. . . I always have a goofy look on my face when I eat there), Texas de Brazil, and Grand Lux Cafe.  But there were no complaints when, at last, we laid down in the park’s cool grass, eyes heavy from those wonderful turkey chemicals, and reflected back on what a wonderful summer it had been.
