State Fair and Fried Food...It Must Be Fall!!

So its fall in Texas and one our favorite times of the year. It isn't because of the weather, because that changes daily. It isn't because of the beautiful fall foliage because pine trees just turn brown. It isn't because of football...oh wait..maybe that is one of the reasons! But one of our favorite Fall Things is the Texas State Fair.

Here you see our first stop once entering the fair grounds. THE Fletcher's Corny Dog stand. 2 dogs, 1 of which is slathered in mustard (that would be mined) and then around the corner to grab an ice cold root beer.

Here we are a few bites in!! Perfect photo op!

Charity..this dog was for you!!! I only ate one..but I thought of you with every bite! I know I was suppose to eat 7 in honor of all my friends that couldn't go and one unborn babe...but I don't believe I could have made it to the car!

Oh but I do believe every bite would have been amazing.

Here's Brian and Bumblebee. I can't keep my man out of the hot rods!! Guess we'll have to get him one!

Here's the one I would pick!

Now on to the 2nd course of our Fried meal!! Tornado Twisters!! I can't turn down a potato EVER...and these are amazing!!!

Now this is decadent!!! Each year we each get something Fried & Sweet. Brian always picks the traditional funnel cake. Me, I like to walk on the wild side. Meet the Fried Peanut Butter Cup Macaroon!! OH MY!!! Yes you heard me right!!! Here is the fresh, hot fried delicacy!

Here it is with a few bites gone!! See the lucious peanut butter and chocolate!! and then that sweet oozy layer of coconut heaven!!!! It was worth EVERY bite!!
And as I say each year..I am glad we only do this ONCE a year!! This was Brian and my sixth year to go to the fair, a tradition we began the first fall we were dating! Good stuff!!

AMY! I LOVE it! Thank you so much for eating some for me. I love your sign, you crack me up. I have a house full of people here and I just busted out laughing when I read your blog and showed everyone your picture!

I hope it was YUMMY!

Sounds like fun, Amy! Never heard of the fried peanut butter macaroon thing before, but it looks pretty yummy. Wonder what they'll try to fry next? :)

YUM! That macaroon looks amazing! We have some funky stuff here at the AZ fair...we're waiting until next year to go. But seriously, they have like half a dozen fried or chocolate-dipped INSECT options. GROSS! There are some TX inspired stuff too...can't wait to try those!
