I’ve lived in Texas my whole life, so I consider myself a Texan through and through.
So, I’m a bit ashamed to admit that when we went to the State Fair of Texas this past weekend, it was my first time.
You know, to go to the state fair.
Of course, I had to sample some of the deep-fried specialties, as well as the traditional fair food.
First up, was the Chicken Fried Bacon.
This heart-attack-just-waiting-to-happen was The Nerd’s favorite dish.
He’d like his arteries clogged up as quickly as possible.
River’s favorite was the Funnel Cake.
Err…rather, the *powdered sugar* on the Funnel Cake.
When we walked by this stand advertising fried cookie dough, I knew I’d found my new favorite thing.
I mean, look at that! Deep Fried Cookie Dough, topped with chocolate syrup and powdered sugar.
Heaven in a small ball, breaded and deep-fried.
They were *so* good! And tasted remarkably like my Brookie recipe.
Then we tried the Fried Chocolate.
Served with chocolate syrup, powdered sugar and whipped cream.
The Nerd was definitely a fan. They kind of tasted like brownies.
Other things we didn’t try:
Fried Frito Pie
Fried Peanut Butter, Jelly and Banana Sandwiches
Still, though, my favorite thing was the Sausage on a Stick.
