The County Fair - Feedback Friday

You all know I love my County Fair, the kids and I look forward to it every year. We mostly bring The Big Guy to foot the bill. He does a lot of standing around waving to us.

Fair food is in a class of it's own...We've all heard of the Fried Oreos, Fried Twinkies, Fried Cheesecake, and even the Fried Butter that Oprah made famous:

"Chicken" Charlie Boghosian has even invented Fried Kool-Aid for the San Diego County Fair this year!

My favorite "fair food" from the New York fairs of my youth, was always "Salt Potatoes". Oh My! You can find a recipe for these salt encrusted lovelies here.

It's Feedback Friday...
