Yesterday, Scott and I went to the Minnesota State Fair.
It was the perfect day to go. . . middle of the week and sprinkling rain on and off really kept the crowds down so there was actually room to walk!
so excited for the fair. . .
First fair food: Roasted corn on the cob. . .
always the best corn ever!
Up next: sunfish fillets with yummy sauce in a boat!
And the sweet stuff. . .
Scott always has to get Sweet Martha’s cookies.
And he always has to get the huge bucket. . . where they pile it super high and you have to eat a ton before you can even put the lid on!
And our ‘new’ fair food this year: pig licker –> chocolate covered bacon sprinkled with sea salt
It was interesting. . . it tasted like bacon with chocolate on it! Both Scott and I said we didn’t think we would get it again, but it was a fun thing to try!
Also eaten but no pictures: Nitrogen frozen vanilla ice cream – so rich and creamy and Scott got a vanilla milk shake from the University of Minnesota Moo booth.
Laura and her boyfriend got to the fair just before we had to leave, so I was able to snag a few mini doughnuts from her!
And fun self portraits on the bus on the way back to the car!
Always a good time at the great MN get-together!
