Good Morning Everyone! First off, so sorry I haven’t been around like I said I would be. No excuse, just went on a blogging hiatus. What better way to start the week of blogging than a post about the Wisconsin State Fair??
As you all know, I am for the most part a pretty healthy person but when it comes to the State Fair, it goes out the window. I want to experience the fair without worry and get back on track the next day. Life is too short to miss out on something you love. With that being said, let’s get started with my experience at the fair!
We went to the fair yesterday and started at the Exhibit Hall. The Exhibit Hall is full of new items on the market, local vendors and more. I usually do not buy anything at the Exhibit Hall, I jut prefer to walk around and see all of the new items out there and maybe sample a few dips. Not exactly the most exciting part of the fair but it is something we do every year.
Our next stop was the Micro Brew Tent, aka a beer tent. However, this wasn’t your average beer tent, this was a tent that offered 42 different beers. It was a hard decision, but ultimately I chose the Door County Cherry Beer. The beer was nice and light, a little sweet but not overpowering. Gregg went with a favorite, Spotted Cow.
After we got our beers, we were off to get our favorite item at the fair, a baked potato. The baked potato is found in the Wisconsin Pvilion and offers many different toppings to choose from (cheese, sour cream, butter, chives, bacon, chili, and salsa). Gregg and I had everything but the salsa, and boy was it good! Typically we get our own but this year we shared one because we wanted to try a few more things at the fair.
After our stop at the pavilion, we were off to Saz’s. Typically I will get the combo platter, but like I said there was more Gregg and I wanted to try so we split the slider combo. This combo came with one pulled pork slider and one pulled chicken slider. As always, Saz’s did not disappoint. So juicy and tender, defiantly hit the spot.
After our stop at Saz’s, we were off to the Machine Shed. If you have never been to the fair I will give you a tip about the Machine Shed-its insane! Really Insane! They have items like chocolate covered bacon, a krispy kreme cheeseburger that uses krispy kreme donuts instead of a bun, deep fried butter (yes I said butter) and the item I got, A DEEP FRIED PB&J. Say it with OMG! I know a lot of people didn’t like it, but I loved it. I know it’s terrible for you, but I love PB&J and this added a whole new level. The PB was nice a warm while the Jelly sat in the background-just the way I like my sammys!
After our stop at the Machine Shed, we were on the hunt for Gregg’s treat-the Deep Fried Apple Pie. This was basically 2 pieces of apple pie deep-fried and topped with cinnamon sugar syrup and vanilla glaze. Gregg really liked this, but I was so so on it (I tried one bite). I am not a huge apple pie fan to begin with so I guess that didn’t help, but Gregg thought they were pretty good.
And last but not least, we stopped here before exiting the fair:
And got the infamous Cream Puff!
After all of this terrible eating (but so good). It’s time to get back on track. This morning I had 1 cup of grapes and 1 vita top. Lunch will be a salad made with lettuce, spinach, strawberry’s, blueberry’s and goat cheese (my favorite). I will be back tomorrow with my eats and a few goodies
