apply directly to the tastebud

Several restaurants brought samples of their food to Lenoir City Park on Sunday for the third annual Taste of Loudon County. I had a window of time between church and work that was just large enough for my family to get there, try some food and get back.

While everything was good, I thought the three best tasting items were the chicken and dumplings from the Dinner Bell Restaurant, the kettle chips from the Carmichael Inn and the salad with honey vinaigrette dressing topped with strawberries and bleu cheese crumbles from Aubrey's.

The table from Aubrey's was right along Fort Loudon Lake. The folks from Cracker Barrel offered some good looking berry cobbler. Loudon Mercantile set up a mini store. They had free samples of Amish-made cashew crunch sitting next to bags of it that were for sale.

One restaurant (or should I say resturant) could have benefited from using spell check on their menu. As we got ready to leave, we heard strolling violinist Al Colombo play some songs from "Fiddler on the Roof." If I had time to stay longer, I would have asked him to play a certain Bernard Hermann selection. That would make him my favorite violinist too.

I almost always misspell the word restaurant. It's just one of those words that elude me. Hey, pass them thar dumplings!
