MN State Fair

Hello lovely followers!  
I have returned from the land of 10,000 lakes and am re-learning how to endure the smoke filled valley that we live in.  It wasn't a very nice homecoming.  Hopefully the fires will be contained soon!
While home, of course we went to the fair.
If you don't already know (embarrassing) the MN state fair is known for not only fried food, but everything is on a stick.  Things like fried twinkies, bacon, fried candy bars, beer, cheese, beef, chicken, corn...all on a stick.  I have a few photos from the fair and I thought I would share them with you all.
For the most part things were eaten before I remembered to take a picture, but I did manage to snap a few things before they were devoured.  
I will resume cooking NOW!

First stop was cheese surprise there.
Wouldn't be a MN fair without curds!

We then saw this stand...but refrained from indulging.  
Healthy Choice?  Well yes, minus the vat of butter each cob is dipped in! ;)

We then saw this!
A huge slab of bacon a stick.
While my dad and I both felt the vortex pulling us in...we did not succumb to this one either.
Did not try this, but the line was long and the sign was cool.  WAY too full at this point!
Of course had to end the evening with Sweet Martha's cookies and milk!
If you've never tried these hot out of the oven have never lived.
Yes we got a bucket...for 3 people...don't judge!
And don't worry either...there was LOTS leftover!

Beautiful MN sunset! 
LOVE LOVE LOVE that state!

PROMISE...home cooked food to come...stay tuned!
