I went to the State Fair of Texas for the first time on Thursday.
I know! I know!
I have been claiming Texas as home for nearly 20 years, yet I hadn’t been to it’s official fair…oh, and speaking about OFFICIAL:
Yes, it is true.
Not only is the State Fair of Texas BIG, but it also boasts to be the “Fried Food Capital of Texas”.
I am not sure what other location has been vying for this title, but I will take their word for it.
Since I am in the fried food capital of Texas…
I will have to confess that it took us a few minute to decide on WHAT fried food was a must-have.
I mean, the fried butter is obvious, but what else?
Fried Cookie Dough?
We settled on fried coke…
fried cookie dough…
and the obvious fried butter.
It was all a little frightening…especially when congregated together.
After extensive sampling, I declared a clear winner*…
FRIED BUTTER (which just tastes like a buttered biscuit)!
*By clear winner I mean the least offensive fried food**.
**By least offensive I mean something I could take more than one bite of***.
***By more than one bite, I don’t mean to infer that I will ever be eating it or any other fried food again.
Cheers from the Fried Food Capital of the World…
Now please come back tomorrow for a report on The Smallest Horse in the World.
P.S. Heidi asked about the fried coke. Those of you who make it at home can correct me, BUT it appeared to me to be fried batter balls soaked in coke syrup. I didn’t care for it because it was OVERLY sweet. It was Blog-Stedman’s favorite of the three while we were there. On the way home he voiced fried coke regret.
