My youngest daughter, Stephany, often talk about squeezing as much joy out of each season as possible. Actually, we don’t just talk about it, we do it!
The Joy Squeezing Includes…
- ENDLESS lemonade in the summer months – we literally try every fast food and sit-down restaurant’s lemonades (and faithfully put our favorites on repeat). We also make our own.. I mean, summer calls for all the lemonade you can get your lips on!
- Planting seeds in the spring and taking long drives through the country to see daffodils and other beautiful spring flowers and trees.
- Sampling every restaurant and coffee house’s hot chocolate and chai lattes in the winter! When my husband and I are in a different town during the winter months, we seek out every chai latte in the area. It’s pretty hard to compete with Starbucks’, but a few come dangerously close.
- Turning into hot dog and hamburger fanatics ALL summer, EACH summer! Seriously.. along with lemonade, it just isn’t summer without them.
Which brings us to something extra delicious and fun the Kentucky Legend Cafe is… excuse the pun on a bun… cooking up.
The following is a press release from the Owensboro Convention Center:

“Obviously National Hot Dog Month is near and dear to us at Kentucky Legend! We couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of this creative celebration with the Owensboro Convention Center. We hope everyone can find some time to come on over and try one of our delicious hot dogs with a fun twist!” says Brooklyn Maple, Brand Manager for Specialty Foods Group, LLC.
The Kentucky Legend Café is located inside the Owensboro Convention Center and is open for lunch from 10am to 2pm Monday through Friday for dine-in and carry-out. All Daily Lunch Specials are $10 and come with choice of a side item or make it a combo with a drink for $12. Garden salad bar and soup of the day are also available.

I hope you get a chance to try each one! They all sound wonderful.. in fact, they’re inspiring me to come up with one for my family this summer, an Owensboro Dog – complete with barbecue, sauce, onions, and chopped pickles. Add a little coleslaw to the situation and I think we’re on to something.
