Funny Things 2 - American Fair Edition

We just got back from Roadtrip #8 in Macon, GA. It was an awesome trip!! So, before we head out on the next trip, we went to the North Florida Fair! The fair is always famous for it's fried foods... they fried everything!!... They had fried/breaded zucchini, Mushrooms, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Onions, green tomatoes, okra, pickles, etc :) I had a lot of it too - YUM!Now, I'd heard of fried Snickers & twinkies (which they had) but they also had FRIED OREOS & PEANUTBUTTER CUPS :)
The fair was cool. They had a shark show and a sea lion show... but our favorite was the pig races :) haha!!! It was hilarious!! Aashini was close up to the race until the pigs came - then she crawled up into Adam's lap really fast :) (as seen below) :) Pig races! haha! Cracks me up!

Fried peanut butter cups? Oh Lord take me now... it must be heaven! LOL

Roberts said...

Pretty much sounds like the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo! (which I never missed until moving overseas:) I love that Aashini scurried into Adam's lap at the pig races? Did you try a deep fried Oreo? They're really good! The fried veggies makes me laugh, especially the zucchini and mushrooms. Not because it's weird, but because sometimes I'll make that as a side dish to dinner! I guess I'm a carnie at heart.

A pig race? Now that is something we wouldn't see in the Middle East! How fun!

Misty Burns said...

Shannon said...

I've heard they fry Coke too.... I didn't think you could make Oreos or Peanut Butter Cups any worse for your health, but I guess anything is possible!

SouthAsiaRocks said...

yeah! I heard about that fried Coke too! Crazy! I heard they just replace the water in the funnel cake batter - I've heard it's pretty good :)

I've heard lots of people talk about deep fried candy bars and stuff at fairs, and how good they are--never personally come across any though. But fried coke?? What is this world coming to?

So funny the things you'll see! I've heard about all that fried stuff too and I've always wanted to try one! Hmmm... now I know where to get them at! Love the pig races- takes me back to my country roots! ha!
