Thread: Fair Food

    Default Fair Food

    Last night my sister in law and I took our daughters, as well as my daughters best
    friend, to an Earth Wind & Fire concert at the county fair. If you ever get a chance
    to see them, go. They were *spectacular*! I've enjoyed their music most all of my
    life, and they are still as good now as they were when I was my daughter's age.

    We got there early so we'd have time to at least glance around at what's new this
    year, and grab a bite before the show started. I saw something that I could only
    imagine as fair food...meaning I couldn't picture it being served anywhere else in
    town! Deep fried macaroni and cheese on a stick! I did not try it. There is just so
    far over the line that I am willing to go, and this just sounded to me like one would
    be inviting a heart attack as they swallowed! Of all the deep frieds, as we call
    them, this one seems even more over the top than the deep fried Twinkie.

    Also deep fried this year: Snickers, Oreos, hamburgers, artichokes, avocados, a mixed
    veggie tray....and the one I could not resist, and thoroughly enjoyed while
    justifying it to myself with how seldom I would ever eat them....Apple fries!

    Apples, cut like French fries, flash fried, rolled in cinnamon & sugar. They were
    soooooooo good! They were the perfect end to a meal that consisted of carne asada
    nachos, roasted corn on the cob, and a fresh lemonade.

    What's your favorite fair food? And, like my apple fries, is it something you only
    eat at the fair?

    The Veggie Fries stand is usually my first stop. Potato, onion, sweet
    potato, zucchini, broccoli, mushroom in tempura-like batter and fried.

    They had hotdish-on-a-stick a year or so back. I don't remember what
    was involved in it.

    I have to eat funnel cakes at the fair. Yes, I only eat them at the
    fair.

    I also love corn dogs and those fresh fried potato chips cut in long
    strips -- I'm blanking on the fair food name for those. Butterfly
    potato chips?

    I tried the deep fried candy bars once. They were fun to try, but I
    don't care to get them again.

    Mmmmm... cotton candy, REAL corn dogs (not like the ones in the freezer
    case at the supermarket), and these French fries I've only found at the
    Illinois state fair. In Ohio I used to go to a lot of different local
    fairs. I had deep fried pumpkin one time. It was pretty good.

    I'm looking forward to the Arizona State Fair in October. They have some
    great fair food and one booth that always has delicious pulled brisket.
    I'm not ready to try the ostrich burger yet, though.

    Cotton candy falls under the category of stupid food,
    but I'd buy it at the fair! That is, I used to. Now it's
    prepackaged. Forget it, the best part about cotton candy
    was watching them swirl the cone.

    They still do that at the Arizona State Fair. Likewise, they stil make
    saltwater taffy before your eyes, and cooking pots of fudge.

    No kidding. I haven't been to a state fair since I was a kid,
    even then it was Pennsylvania or West Virginia, not sure
    which. This wasn't a real fair, just a church fundraiser fair.
    Local places supplied the food, so I got a sausage and peppers
    sub. And some zeppoli!
