Minnesota Fair here I come!
So, I'm back from the fair and I've found a new favorite! I read on one of the news sites that the food to eat this year is the chocolate, marshmallow and banana grilled sandwich sprinkled with powdered sugar. It tastes like banana cream pie paired with pastry. YUMMY. Oh, and I found the scotch eggs over by the horse barns. It was decent but not as good as I had anticipated. I didn't get to try the wild rice hamburgers like I had planned but I found a good stand that was selling 32 oz lemonade for only $2 (outside front of the international bazaar). I took my daughter to the kidway for rides. Of course, we blew through a sheet of tickets in 15 minutes but there were no lines so that was nice. It was really hot out there today! Thankfully the windy conditions helped control the humidity. Not as crowded as I had anticipated either. I skipped the cheese curds this year. The greasiness is just too much for my stomach. I did get my funnel cake and the strawberry smoothy. As usual, I ate way too much sweets and scrimpted on everything else. I did manage to avoid drinking a soda all day which is a first! I brought a water bottle and refilled at the culligan booth a couple times. If anyone out there is planning on going to the Minnesota fair, you gotta try the grilled chocolate, marshmallow and bananas sandwich! it's right by the south entrance in front of the Birth Center.
