corn dogs

After a ten plus year absence I made it to the Minnesota State Fair!

Jake and I decided last minute to bike to the State Fair on Saturday afternoon - it was absolutely gorgeous out and we were craving some corn dogs and cheese curds.

We arrived at 3:15 and left at 7:15 and in those four hours we consumed; 2 corn dogs, 1 bowl of apples, caramel, and vanilla ice cream, 2 pecan candy turtles, 1 almond dipped pretzel, 1 serving of cheese curds, 1 cotton candy on a stick, 2 pronto pups, and 1 glass of fresh squeezed lemonade.

We also saw everything single animal at the fair. Well, maybe not, but it felt like it. The afternoon was fantastic - exhausting but so worth it!

I think we will need to go one more time to make sure we satisfy all our corn dog and cheese curd cravings.

Sounds like a tasty afternoon. We are getting excited for our county fair on Thursday with the kids. Grilled Cheese, teeny weeny donuts and shaved ices!

What's the difference between a corn dog and a pronto pup?

I have one very pregnant wife who is rather jealous as she's been craving a corn dog for several weeks now... we're not really sure when that particular itch will be scratched.

I love the fair as much as I hate Jay Leno!
