  Monday Morning Mirth  

This entry is in honor of a very, very naughty *snack-filled* weekend. I recently gave up the Food of the Godz (erm, french fries) in hopes of staving off that Holiday 5 pounder that always ends up on my hips. I was doing really good until this happened and then I wanted (and tried) to eat everything in sight.

A friend told me about the trend at State & County Fairs of putting un-before thought of already cooked Food to the Fire – but food to the fire in a special way: FRIED in Deep FAT!


These were the Summer Romances of
quite a few Fair Followers

    AAArgh! The very thought of any of those deep-fried anythings is making my teeth hurt! But hey — we Canucks have **poutine**!

  2. Ashley says:

    Ah, but you missed the latest–and possibly most disturbing–trend: fried coke!!

  3. Irish Clover says:

    Down south, one does not need a State or County fair to enjoy deep fried pickles or Twinkies :) Just walk into a restaurant and order one. With deep fried pickles, we have the choice of a whole fried pickle, fried pickle spears, or fried pickle discs. Yum!

    I was getting ready to mention the deep-fried Coke, but Ashley beat me to it…..

    What’s next??????

  5. Crystal says:

    I’m not big on fried foods, but fried pickles really are awesome! Especially when you do them yourself, using the best fish fry ever!

  6. Tracey says:

    Ugh, chicken patty and a krispy kreme. There is something very wrong about that.

  7. Bonne Marie says:

    Ideed! but the clock just tolled NOON in Chicago and I’m thinkin’ it’d be yummy in my tummy :p

    So wrong but maybe So Right!

  8. Carol says:

    I feel full just reading about it…

  9. Jennifer says:

    Deep fried Snickers? I bet that’s good.

  10. kmkat says:

    But hey! It’s not Fair Food unless it’s on a stick. Deep-fried pickle on a stick. Deep-fried mac’n’cheese on a stick. And so on.

  11. Norma says:

    OH.MY. And I thought I’d eat anything. I’ve never tried any of those, and though I did give deep-fried Twinkies a passing thought in Maryland, I just couldn’t bring myself to it. I do love fried ice cream, though. And french fries? Yes. Food of the Godz, that I’ve also had to give up. Ergh.

  12. Susan says:

    Elephant ears? Boring? I think not! I have this hard and fast rule about fair food. If one has to step back and say WTF?, that is a bad sign. Fried mac and cheese? WTF? Fried Snickers? WTF? Elephant ears? Oh Yeah! We’ll take 2!

    Why, it just so happens that I am married to the “Minnesota Pickle King”!

    My husband owns a deep-fried pickle booth at the Minnesota State Fair. When he first ran the idea by me, I wanted to hurl. Turns out, they are pretty damn good! (Especially with cream cheese in the middle)

    Deep-fried twinkies? Not so much.
    Deep-fried Snickers bar? Only on a bowl of vanilla ice cream.

    The Great Minnesota Get-Together is infamous for it’s deep-fried EVERYTHING. I believe the new deep-fried food this year was deep-fried hot dish.

    And now I will throw up in my mouth.

  14. Staci says:

    Irish Clover is right – I can get deep fried pickles in a restaurant.

    Deep-fried Snickers are good. They dip them in funnel cake batter first. YUM!

  15. Cara says:

    What? No funnel cake? It’s fried. And so so yummy.

  16. Elizabeth says:

    A restaurant here started serving deep fried pickle slices. They are best when cut into spears or coins and fried in a really light crispy batter. Nobody will believe how good they are til they try them! Apparently they are originally from the south.
