Wow. I ate close to a weeks worth of calories at the state fair and I am not proud of that. I don’t think I need to eat anything fried ever again.
We started with fried potato skins covered in ranch and cheese
Moved on to fried pickles with ranch dipping sauce
Then corn dogs
Chocolate covered bacon
(I don’t eat meat, so I didn’t take part in these, but I heard the corn dog was good, bacon was not so good, it was cold)
Fried cheese on a stick
(vegetarian corn dog to me)
Fried green tomatoes with ranch dipping sauce
And quite possibly the grossest thing I’ve ever heard of…a scotch egg. It’s hard-boiled egg, surrounded by sausage and then deep-fried. It comes with some dipping sauce too. I learned that the dipping sauce for everything at the Minnesota state fair is ranch dressing.
But, don’t think that we just ate food and did nothing else, we also saw some of the biggest vegetables I’ve ever seen
And some of the smallest vegetables I’ve ever seen
And the only other thing I like to do at the fair besides eat, is pet the animals
And, I know it looks like I’m really scared of this lamb, but I was actually really sad because he looked like he had a cold. Poor guy.
They had a birthing center too where you can watch animals be born, but we missed it.
The next day I felt like I needed to eat some veggies immediately, but it was a lot of fun and I’m glad I got to go. Although, I have to say it, the Texas fair is better. Sorry!
