Have you noticed my Sunday meals from one week keep turning into the Monday meals the next week? Ok, you probably haven’t actually noticed that, but I have. For the last couple of weeks we’ve either been out and about at livestock seminars or picnics and living on sandwiches made on the tailgate of the truck or we’ve been dining with friends. At least the Monday menu is easy!
The menu is going to look a little strange and very boring this week. The Florida State Fair opens this week. Between dropping off animals, the skill-a-thon, and showmanship, we’ll be at the Fair quite a few days this week. As tempting as the smells wafting across the midway are, fair food isn’t the healthiest thing we could be eating or the healthiest thing for our budget. We’ll be eating salads and sandwiches off the tailgate again and nibbling on an occasional treat at the fair.
Over the course of the fair, the kids will devour a waffles and ice cream sandwich; my husband will scarf down a large bag of kettle corn; and we’ll all try some new freaky fried food like deep fried butter or deep fried Kool-Aid, because that’s what you do at the fair.
Did you notice no funnel cakes or elephant ears on the list? No need to. The Friday after the fair, our 4-H club will get together and share stories from the fair while I make funnel cakes for everyone. That’s how we get our funnel cake fix!
The blog will most likely be a little light on posts this week because of the last minute prep and all the travelling back and forth to the fair. However, by the end of the week, I should be posting plenty of pictures. As usual, because I have a thing for food, you’ll get to wander the fair with me, laughing at all of the fun fair food available!
I pray that you have a wonderful, productive, and full week ahead! See you at the fair!
