The Purge Before the Surge


The Wisconsin State Fair is just one day away! That means my body needs to be in tip-top shape. Scratch that, it’s not true and it’s not possible (at least in one day). So the focus is on getting my digestive system ready for the all-out assault of deep fried you-name-it on a stick. I might even eat some stick, I’m that excited. So today, on State Fair Eve, we eat lettuce. We eat it because, one, I need something healthy, b., the roughage in it cleans things out to provide a pristine home for tomorrows treasures, three, I guarantee the only place in State Fair Park you’ll find lettuce is in the rabbit barn so there’s no concern about doubling up, and finally, I want to be able to say, “lettuce pray” before dinner tonight and then thank God for the fair and for the fact that I don’t have to eat lettuce every night.

With that, here’s the new foods I’m looking forward to:

  1. Beer Battered Deep Fried Sliders
  2. Beer Donuts
  3. Deep Fried Peanut Butter & Bacon Nuggets with Berry Weiss Jelly

Watch for the food reviews and more posts on all our fun at the fair; where the fatty inside me gets to meet the blossoming fatty outside me…
