Confessions of a Fair goer

With just the slightest push from Splatgirl, I'm going to confess what unhealthy, deep fried but oh so good food I've been eating at the MN State Fair this year. You see, I am in love with the MN State Fair. I would go there all 10 days if I could and you better believe I would eat most everything in sight. And then pay for it all year long before I did it again. As it stands I already need to work out 8x more than I already do just to work off the 2 days of eating / fair going that I have under my belt. Splatgirl & I are going again this week so watch for more food confessions...
Fish Taco
Confession #1 which I'm sure turns Splatgirls stomach...the fish taco. Tilapia with cabbage, a mango salsa and another sauce or two wrapped in a flour tortilla. Delicious but I think I remember it being a bit better last year.
Confession #2 is the jumbo fresh lemonade from the cheese on a stick booth across from the corn roast stand, just the right ratio of sweet / sour / ice. It makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

Christmas in .... August

I started doing a little knitting recently, I can't even believe it. I've been asked to re-create a Christmas stocking for the youngest of a bunch of cousins who never got his because their grandmother passed away before his was completed. I'm hoping the family will be pleased with how it's turning out.
