To answer my most frequently asked question, yes, I did eat some fair food. Well, actually, a lot of fair food!
That's a 32 oz bucket of fries, smothered in malt vinegar and salt. I managed to down three cups of these babies in a 13 hour period. I wasn't too keen on sharing them either.
One of things I like best about the food booths is how colorful are they are.
Minnesota is the home of SPAM. I zoomed for this picture. I hate the stuff and did not want to get close enough to even smell it.
It seems that everything is fried.
And what is the fair without cheese curds? The lines are always horrendous at this booth.
This has got to be one of my favorite booths.
I had dill pickle slices, breaded and deep-fried, covered with a spicy Cajun sauce with a side of Ranch for dipping. Dee-lish-ous! Of course, I put dill pickle slices on pizza so this is a natural for me.
Skipped this one. Just couldn't get my head around eating these anywhere but by a campfire.
The smells coming off this grill were almost overwhelming tempting.
B tried this one. It was just too funny. They wrap a pizza around a stick and bake it. Of course, once it starts to cool the whole thing topples over. I could make an anology, but I won't!
I didn't eat this but I took the picture for one of my readers. If I had written down the names of the owners, I would have asked for a free sample!
So here's the final tally for a 13 hour period in the hot sun:
3 buckets of french fries
1 order of deep-fried dill pickle slices
1 cheese curd (not an order, just one! they are not high on my list)
1 bite of giant cinammon roll with sweetened butter
1 hot dog
1 bite pork chop on a stick (i wasn't the only one not keen on sharing my food!)
3 bottles of water
2 almost a foot long hotdog (actually 11-3/4 inches)
1 ear roasted corn
1 bite (that I almost spit out) of chocolate covered bacon
1 bucket of Sweet Martha's Cookies (spit with 4 other people)
Not so much really. Just lots of carbs and fat!
