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
Corn on the cob from the Young Life aka Dogville booth. SO GOOD!
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.
Hawaiian Shaved Ice — cherry and green apple mix. Very good!
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.
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!
Ending the night with Deep Fried Cookie Dough from the Sweet Cheeks truck across from the Sea Lion show. HIGHLY recommended!
