{Texas State Fair}

Thursday, October 06, 2011

If you've read this post and this post you know how the Loerke's like to roll at the State Fair. We try EVERYTHING. This year was our 7th year of fried food feasting with our dear friend's Mack & Bethany.



Between the four of us we ate: Fletcher's Corney dogs*, fried Sauerkraut*, tornado taters, fried buffalo chicken in a flapjack*, deep fried Texas salsa, fried funnel cake fries, roasted corn, sliver fries, fried PB&J, fried bubblegum, a walking taco*, and fried Autumn pie. Can you say, Holy sickness awesomeness, Batman?

We also saw the world's smallest horse, this year's winning butter sculpture, watched pig races, played games on the Midway, and saw Boris the 1600lb boar take a nap. 

The fried foods listed above with an * next to them were our favorites. Our least favorite was the fried bubblegum which only the boys were brave enough to try. What is your favorite thing to do and eat at the fair? We'd love to know!

Happy Thursday Homies.
XOXO

We have attended 2 small town fairs in the last 3 weeks and 1 more coming up in a week and a half...we have eaten: pork-a-bobs, roasted corn, the tornado tators, shrimp on a stick, fwied wice (fried rice) fried boudain balls, hamburgers, kettle corn, funnel cakes and drank lots of fresh squeezed (w/ 1/4c. of sugar) lemonade....I'm a little nauseous thinking about even smelling "fair food" again...but it was YUMMY!
Ferris Wheels are the BomB-diggity!!!

We were there this weekend too! I HATED the fried bubblegum. It was too sweet and nasty. I had the fried smore's which were delicious.
