I spent about 5-6 hours at the State Fair last night, eating and spending a ton of $$$$$$$$$.  It was fun! 90% of the time I was there
stuffing my face.  Seriously! Good thing everything was shared or the medics would've
had to wheel me out of there on a stretcher!! I know this is the worst
photo I have ever posted of myself on this blog, but I'm keeping it
real today.  Nothing like getting caught with a foot-long corn dog in
your mouth!!

Besides the corn dog, I sampled:

*Elk Burger
*Taco from Mexican Hat (sooooo much better than Taco King!)
*Deep-fried ravioli
*Angus Bites
*Bacon-wrapped turkey tenderloin
*Cheese curds
*Shaved Pork Tenderloin Sandwich
*Scottish Egg
*Sweet Martha's Cookies (who wouldn't need sweets after all that MEAT???!!!)

I took a couple of boring pictures….

State record Muskie, almost 5 feet long.  There are several of these bad-boys in White Bear Lake (some even bigger!!).  Does anyone wonder WHY I don't like swimming in lakes?????  I know two people who have caught a muskie bigger than this in WBL within the past month (although both times the fish never made it in the boat).

One of my favorite places is the Bazaar.  Bought a couple of these hot sauces.  Hopefully I bought the ones that will NOT make my face spontaneously combust!

Besides eating, we also shopped and found a couple of things that we just couldn't leave there!! Let's just say our household Christmas shopping is now complete 😉

I am looking forward to another trip to the Fair on Friday night 🙂

  12. What a fun Sunday! It’s so fun to go to those things – you try all kinds of new good, spend time outside, people watch, listen to music. That makes me want to go to the next one here in Arizona. I haven’t been to one since we lived in Dallas. So, it’s been at least four years, I guess. And kudos to you for ‘keeping it real’. I’m a big fan of that. Every picture taken is NOT good, nor is every day. I hate blogs that are 100% totally positive and not reflective of days we aren’t glowing and happy, you know?
