And those would be mini-donuts, thank you very much!
We spent Labor Day morning at the Minnesota State Fair.
After our bike ride over, Paul started the morning with breakfast on a stick (AKA “Breakfast Lollypop”). Perhaps next year we will try the mac ‘n’ cheese on a stick. I am curious, I admit.
We then moved on to her favorite event of the day:
Of course, we had to try some of the fair’s gastronomic delights.
Not that one, though.
Somewhere in here we got cheese curds, which I know sound disgusting, but they are so good. I didn’t take a photo of them, alas.
This is a strawberry rhubarb malt. Or, as I like to call it, “Paradise in Dairy Form.” I think this flavor is new this year; typically I get raspberry. In my opinion, a stop in the dairy barn for a malt totally makes the whole trip to the fair worthwhile. I made a foolish rookie mistake this time though, and ate too many french fries. Thus, sadly, I was unable to finish my malt. (Do not worry – Paul finished it for me. Always taking one for the team, he is).
It was surprisingly uncrowded when we arrived around 9:30 – I thought Labor Day would be much busier. It did start to fill up around noon, however.
And we had to get AG home for a nap, anyway. We probably should’ve gone over earlier. I hate crowds, and usually try not to eat food that is terribly bad for me, but I just love the state fair, for some reason. And today was such a beautiful day; sunny, but not hot.
A perfect end to summer. Now may a gorgeous fall last for five months.
