My sisters, my BIL, and my granddaughter and I went to our county fair on Thursday night. Not only did we see Thompson Square preform but we got the opportunity to pig out on some wonderful treats. We had brats and saurkraut...funnel cakes with strawberries, mini donuts, and cheese curds! We did share or else we would have had a belly ache! LOL....what favorite treats do you get when you attend a special event?

Hi jill, I'm glad you brought this up because I forgot our county fair is starting tomorrow and I'd like to go sometime this week. The days and weeks just seem to pass so quickly and here it is already. All that food you had sounds simply delicious! I also like the elephant ears and the waffles, but just about any of it is good to me, lol! I don't cook like this so it all tastes good and it's nice to treat yourself once in a while.

When we go to the fair we usually get fried dough. It is not my favorite though. Hubby loves it and has to get it every time we go.

I have to watch the fried foods. They make me sick to my stomach.

Hi Jill - what on earth are brats.? I'm glad that you had a wonderful time. Of course, in my country we would eat jerk chicken, festival and my favourite - a speciality called blue drawers! That should sit tillage your imagination. It is basically a corn meal sweet mixture that was tied in a banana leaf and boiled until cooked. The green banana a leaf Makes the outside of the cornmeal a shade of blue. - even though banana a leaves are green. Well - I never said it was sensible. Am still marooned in London but the Olympic games are on and it has all been amazing. US did wonderfully today and more athletics tonight and tomorrow. So exciting!

Dear Jill, I love the Fair! Our fair is in September! I can't wait! I love to eat a crab cake sandwich and some funnel cake for dessert. We go to the fair every year to celebrate my birthday, which is also in September. We always have a wonderful time at the Fair.

It was awesome. My granddaughter was here and they don't have fairs to speak of where she came from so she loved it...and all the food!

I have always had a really big weakness for funnel cakes because of the fact that they are something that you can really only get at a sporting event or at a fair, so they are my guilty indulgence at these kinds of events. However, over the weekend we went to a festival about ninety miles away from here and though they had funnel cakes, I didn't get one because it was a food based festival and there were all kinds of really good things there that I wanted to try. I tried goetta (pork, beef and oats, similar to sausage)sushi, goetta pizza and even a turkey goetta hot brown. Yum.

we usually go to the Canadian National Exhibition which is in the later half of the summer and we always get these tiny little donuts with cinnamon sugar which are so good. last year they had deep fried mars bars and supposedly they were pretty good but i never tried one (just not brave enough!)

Yes they had deep friend oreo's....and twinkies too. I wasn't brave enough to try then either....didn't appeal to me. I would have liked to have a carmel apple though....yummy...

I love the little donuts and its the only place that we buy them now. I'm not suppose to eat any fried food, but do at the fair. Funnel cakes are great with strawberries. Sounds like a great day and I'm hoping to attend the fair this year.
