First things first: I've now closed comments on the giveaway, and I'll be announcing a winner in the next few days!
I visited the Texas State Fair in Dallas this weekend with Elliott and his family, a first for me. It's a festival that pays homage to the deep-fried food, among other things.
I heard they would be serving fried butter, and I was definitely envisioning a whole stick of butter, which is repellant.
However, we discovered these lovely little bundles of dough, with a little pocket of butter inside. We opted for the honey, cinnamon and sugar variety, which tasted like Sopapillas. We also tried fried pizza (an actual slice of pizza, fried-we think there was some ricotta in it; tasty!) and the best dish of the day:
Fried Pineapple Upside-Down Cake. So tasty.
Luckily, I shared these calories with three other people, so I don't feel too guilty.
Beth and I also enjoyed the arts and crafts building. I snapped a few pictures of fun things.
I love these knitted monsters!
I also thought these quilts were nice!
The best part of the fair, though?
Seeing Oliver, of course!
