Fair Fare

I go to the Arizona State Fair every few years and the thing I look forward to the most is the food, of course.

I love corn dogs.

I love funnel cakes.

I love indian fry bread.

I love navajo tacos.

I love ice cream.

I love chocolate dipped cheesecake.

I love roasted almonds.

I love churros.

I love roasted corn.

I love caramel apples.

I love a lot of the foods at the fair.  And usually choose a couple of things to eat.

But I'm not the most adventurous of eaters.

And I don't think that just because I'm at the fair, I should eat deep-fried whatever.  (Although, if you notice, most of my favorite fair foods are deep-fried.)

I draw the line at the "latest-and-greatest" foods.

Like the deep-fried butter.

And fried cookie dough.

And buffalo chicken in a flapjack on a stick.

And fried coke.  Or kool-aid.  Or chocolate milk.

And especially the "delicacy" being served up at this year's fair....the Maggot Melt Sandwich. 

And not just because it has a not-so-healthy amount of american cheese which is just plain yucky!

So, what is your favorite fair food?  Leave me a comment. 

Like my pal Ginger has been doing lately.  (Thanks, Ginger!)

Last year was my first AZ State Fair experience after living in Arizona for 28 of the last 41 years, yes, years not months!!! We even attended with you and Darrell. Why didn't we eat any fair food? Not ONE thing. I am sorry that I botched your tradition.

Yay! Thanks for the shout out, and no thanks for the picture you included. That is all I have seen on various local morning news shows as of late and I just can't seem to get it out of my head- It truly is disgusting!

Navajo tacos and deep-fried snickers. Jared is one of those people who will try he's eaten a whole lot more crazy things at the fair than I have. ;)
