The Great State Fair of Texas

Right now the Texas State Fair has dropped anchor in Dallas...about a mile away from our house. We were lucky enough to experience the State Fair on two occasions, once for the OU/TX game and once for our fried food extravaganza.  Lets talk more about the fried food.


The Texas State Fair is known for its outrageous fried food creations and they even have a special "Texas Fried" map to show you where all the fried food locations are.  We set out last Wed night to experience all that the fried gods had to offer us.  So, I present to you the fried food menu...

First up- the Fried Margarita. This is made up of funnel cake bread soaked in tequila then fried, put in a cup, tequila poured over the top and whip cream. It was just okay.


Next- Fried Peanut Butter, Jelly and Banana sandwich. A basic pb&j, add banana, fried and topped with powdered sugar. SO yummy but pretty heavy. A must to share this one with someone.


And next- Fried beer. Yes, you read that right. Fried beer. It won for most creative in the fair food competition. It was disgusting. We both had to spit it out. Imagine a pocket of cardboard tasting dough filled with beer then flash fried. Gross.


Next up on our trip o' fried food- a good old fashioned corn dog. But with a twist...jalapenos and cheese on the inside. Topped with mustard of course. This was yum, as always.


And then we took a venture away from the fried food and had some cold beer, nachos and cotton candy with a game of pop the ballon with a dart (that I won!). More pictures for your enjoyment.



I can only imagine the amount of calories we took in that night but it was well worth it. We had an absolute blast and most of the food was pretty darn tasty. Until next year...bye bye state fair.
