food on a stick…

Last  year, I went to the Wisconsin State Fair.  I hadn’t gone for many, many years.  But, I was drawn to food on a stick, specifically chocolate covered bacon.  I just wanted to try it.

So, I decided if I was going to try the chocolate covered bacon (it was OK), I would make it a mission of trying as many of these things as I could.  I did, and it was fun.

Now, it’s a year later, and there are a lot more to choose from.  I’m debating, do I want to do this again?  Someone, please talk me out of this.

    1. I don't know about all that 'FAIR FOOD'....after my husband's visit with his heart doctor yesterday 'we' are back on the South Beach Diet. I did NOT find ANYTHING on your list that would be allowed on said diet.

      However, I LIKE your blog's new look!!! Mine will have one as soon as my daughter (newly arrived from a year in Scotland) has time to do it for me since I am a newbie at such things!
