Oh the Fair!

By August 27, 2010Food





A few of our fair photos from 2007

The Minnesota State Fair starts today. It’s the best fair in the nation, and more than just Minnesotans think so. Although we don’t eat a lot of junk food, I have a weakness for cheese curds and homemade chocolate chip cookies, while I’m pretty sure Neil would subsist entirely on Pronto Pups if he had the option. Sadly, we won’t be able to make it this year, but we are planning to make some fair food this weekend, so check back next week!

What’s your favorite fair food?

    Foot long corn dog and a bloomin onion. I was briefly trying to engineer a bloomin potato, but that is hard to do, as it turns out. This is the fourth year in a row I’ve missed the state fair, and I don’t want to miss it a fifth year.

  • Hey, I was at the Minnesota State Fair in 2006! I didn’t go in 2007, but was only living about a mile from the fair grounds. You should have stopped by! 🙂

    If I had known you were there, I definitely would have? Are from MN or were you a transplant at the time? I miss it so much!

    I didn’t make it to the MN fair this year…I think it might be the first year since I moved here that I missed it! I love the chocolate chip cookies too…and hot dish on a stick. Just because it doesn’t get more Minnesotan than that!
