It's the Fair

Fair Food Feast Parade ~ Day 1

Any other time of the year, I am a pretty healthy eater. I have all sorts of self-imposed food rules that I live by. Like, no potato chips, no ranch dressing, no ice cream after 8:00pm. But when it is Fair time, well, all rules are toast. Like cinnamon French toast drenched in butter. Mmmm.  The ten days of the Fair are the one time each year I let myself eat with abandon.  Hot dog!!

For giggles, I used to keep a list of what I ate during the Fair. But it got too complicated so I started having my husband, Rob, take pictures of me whenever I ate something — much easier to remember that way. And thus was born my Annual Fair Food Feast Parade — the Daily Edition.

Here is Day 1. And unless otherwise noted, I consume everything by myself to the very end.

Black cherry flavored water so I could keep the bottle and refill with water from the fountains

P1230231

Corn on the cob from the Young Life aka Dogville booth. SO GOOD!

P1230235

Chicago Dog from the Dogville booth. This gourmet hot dog stand is new this year. The dog was very good. The Chicago part was tasty but a messy disaster.

P1230284

Hawaiian Shaved Ice — cherry and green apple mix. Very good!

P1230359

Deep fried ice cream from the Las Mesitas booth. The ice cream was ok but I didn’t like the coating. It wasn’t really deep fried and it tasted more like mushy corn flakes. Rob helped me finish it.

P1230362

Fried chicken from the Lions booth. A new discovery last year. And I think that was the last time I had fried chicken. Worth the wait!

P1230488

Ending the night with Deep Fried Cookie Dough from the Sweet Cheeks truck across from the Sea Lion show. HIGHLY recommended!

I am a Clark County Fair Fanatic and eat all things fried during the glorious 10 days of The Fair. I have lived in Clark County since 2004 and consider it the second-best decision of my life. I am married to a great guy named Rob (first-best decision) who graciously carries my stuff and takes my picture every time I eat something at The Fair. We have two indoor cats and lots of deer, rabbits, and coyotes who are kind enough to stay outside.
