I forgot to announce the reader recipe poll winner yesterday! Whoops! It’s mozzarella pizza rolls. Recipe and review Friday morning!
The 4H County fair is in town this week, which is a big deal in these parts (it’s one of the largest county fairs in the country). Dave and I like the fair, but we don’t love the crowds, the traffic, or the $8 per person entry fee (especially that part). This year the fair ran a new special: pay $10 per person between 11-2 and when you leave, get reimbursed! It’s a “lunch pass” and we think they’re just hoping to get the vendors more business. Either way, it works perfectly for us as it’s 1) free and 2) covers a short amount of time. We need want to stay longer than an hour or two anyway.
Yesterday Dave and I decided to do a mid-week lunch date and we hit up the fair! Dave has a mild obsession with the mini donuts at the fair. He dreams about them throughout the year.
Miraculously he only ate 3 or 4 and put the rest in a ziploc in the fridge to enjoy throughout the week. Who is this man??? (Dave once ate 30 mini donuts AND half a giant soft pretzel at the fair… he was more than a little dough-sick later on.)
There isn’t a particular fair food I really love, but I’m always down for ice cream!
Black raspberry soft serve. It was delicious. (By the way, do you love my atrocious tan lines? Sexy.)
We watched one horse race at the track
and toured a couple of the animal barns. We also saw baby piggies!
They were just 3 days old and super cute!
After that, we got our tickets reimbursed and headed home – no traffic, not too much money spent, and the perfect amount of time! We’ll definitely do that again next year!
What’s your favorite kind of fair food?
