I heard there was a fair this weekend and immediately made plans to go and eat lots of fried disgusting fair food. I have been very healthy during this pregnancy…working out, eating healthy, drinking gallons of water, but I need treats ever once in a while too. Fried fair food treats just happen to be my favorite.
Yesterday, we joined my in-laws and went to the Wilson County Fair in Lebanon, TN. We ate A LOT.
A catfish sandwich…
Fried green tomatoes…
homemade chocolate ice cream…
Corn on the cob, my favorite!
Fried peach cobbler pie…not as good as it sounds
And the holy grail…curly fries
Of course, fairs in the south offer so much more the fried goodness. There are photo, art, quilting and canning contests. There are also lots and lots of animals! People come from all over the state to show off their horse trotting skills, their perfectly proportioned goats, their jumping donkeys and their prize-winning chickens. (There were tons of rides too, but who cares when there are petting zoos!)
I did everything I could to come home with a little farm of my own, but Husband has yet to be convinced that raising chickens is a good idea. I’m certain he’ll see the lights…eventually. Now only a few more weeks until the state fair! I still need to get a funnel cake and a blooming onion!
