A Fair is a Veritable Smorgasbord, Orgasbord, Orgasbord


Ahh, the State Fair. The one a day a year I can consume enough calories to feed a small country and NOT feel guilty about it. (The other several days of the year when I eat that much, I feel the pangs.) But not at the fair. This year, it was all business. I got online ahead of time, looked up what ridiculously fattening foods would be available, wrote down a list and took it with me. I'm please to announce that I ate all but one and I've never felt more pleased with myself. I guess my high school guidance counselor was right - goals ARE important!

Here's my delicious list:


Corn Dog - right out of the gate...


Cheese curds - honestly, I REALLY wish I was munching on some of these right now...


Fried Guacamole - these would make a great party treat (at a Get Fat Now party)...


Fried Cookie Dough - this was Craig's favorite, and rightfully so. Friggin' good...


Roasted Corn - A vegetable; yeah healthy me... (ahem, please disregard the butter soaked paper towel)


Fried Banana Pudding - a little slice of heaven...




And why not wash it down with a big 'ole glass of fresh homemade lemonade...


And some cotton candy...


And popcorn.

That right folks - no guilt. It only comes once a year and I love it! The only depression I'm feeling is from the one thing I didn't get around to. Even in my glutinous behavior, I was too full (sick) to stomach the Fried Frito Burrito. Oh you heard me right - FRIED FRITO BURRITO! (I'm such a pansy!) I'm totally regretting it now. I should have just taken my chances. Well, there's always next year. 364 days and counting.

I suppose you can fry anything if you really try, right? Fried banana pudding??? That sounds like heaven (without the chocolate--that's a must in heaven for me). :) I've got to take a trip to the fair sometime!

OH. MY. GOSH. Some of those things I would have never thought of as fried. I'd be game to try anything. You'd have to roll me outta there.
