Can You Say: "DEEP FRIED!"
About the only things not deep fried at the Wisconsin State Fair are the Cream Puffs and those have plenty of creamy goodness in them already. This year's new deep fried feature was Macaroni and Cheese on a stick. Since I really have never tried mac & cheese, it didn't appeal to me, but my sister-in-law, wife and kids seemed to enjoy it. My wife would like to get back to the fair yet to try a deep fried pickle. Not quite sure about that one either.
I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not that I live within walking distance to this treat heaven. The fair is only about 5 blocks away from our house and we actually have people that pay $5 to park on lawns on our block, so we must live pretty close. I've been there twice so far and the fair runs through Sunday, so I may be going back again. Today, was "Grazin' Day." Yes, it 'twas a bad day. I am a sucker for a bargain and since there were so many great deals today, I couldn't pass them all up. Went to have a pulled pork sandwich with chips, a quarter glass of "Mocha Milk", a Maple Syrup Sundae and a few bites of a Cinnamon Roll and Quality Nuts. Unfortunately, today I went with a group from my nursing home so I didn't even have the advantage of walking to and from the park.
Best sign I saw at the fair: I Don't Skinny Dip, I Chunky Dunk! Made me giggle and I did take a picture of it unfortunately, it was on the "work" camera though.
Been doing fine here and probably the best news for me is that I am subbing WW meetings the next two evenings so there is no way I will be heading to the fair for supper.
Have a great week ;)
