Fried Food Capital of Texas!

That's right. I'm off to the State Fair of Texas this weekend and it seriously is referred to as the "Fried Food Capital of Texas" (which is also a registered trademark reference so I don't get in trouble!). So you name it, they fry it. We're not talking Twinkies - that was loooooonnnng ago. I'm talking butter, cookie dough, bacon, cheesecake, etc. (No, I'm not kidding.) This year's winners: Most Creative is Fried Beer and Best Tasting is Fried Frit0$ pie.

I have no idea how the fried beer works - I'll try to find out, but I do know the fried Frit0$ pie is frozen first, dipped in batter, and then fried. And yes, for anyone that is going what the hell? Most are frozen, dipped in batter, and fried. Honestly, it's kinda disgusting to me, but I am fascinated by the whole concept of it. (If you do a search, you can find the website and the food section.)

I might have something, but didn't last time. My favorite thing at the fair is the roasted corn - not a bad thing to have as a favorite!

I already went and was totally bummed that I couldn't eat a Fletcher's corny dog. Oh well! I did have a few bites of funnell cake and it was totally worth it! Have fun!
