The Great Minnesota Get-Together

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. . . Winking smile

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! Smile 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!

  1. The corn looks really good and I could not be around that cookie bucket. I would go nuts on them!
