Yeah, I'm quite late. The fair's OVER so you can't get inspired to go from these photos (unless you remember to go NEXT year). ANYWAY LET'S GO (BACK TO THE FAIR)




I began with my breakfast of champions - the Scotch egg with much horseradish sauce.



Kim saw this sign and was intrigued



...but I think it was just a twinkie covered in butterscotch (Kim: "Magic Shell!") - don't get me wrong, it was still tasty



Had to have another pickle dog



Look, they have their own website! I wish I'd visited it before today, I could have gotten a free KOOL-AIDE out of the deal



Coffee from the Farmer's Union - I got a spiffy hat from them which doesn't appear in any photos (rats)



My bro-bro MCing the homebrew beer awards



While Kim and Joel waited in line for Pronto Pups, I caught the parade - here's the parade of cops on bikes. They had many flashing lights, which always mesmermize me. Also, who knew that such a snowy state would have so many bike cops?



I decided the batter was neat and took this photo



Kim's Pronto Pup (with mustard)



This character never turned back to me - damn him. He had a freaky face, too, but you'll just have to take my word for it.



After a giant pickle, you gotta catch the tiny horses!



...and the giant cow.



This is Giggles' Grill, where we bought one of most everything on the menu



This is where I pretend to take a picture of the menu, but instead follow orders to capture the Danica Patrick T-shirt for all time



Elk/pork/some other animal brat, root beer float ice cream, Dasani, walleye "fries" and walleye cakes



The brat unwrapped and after a visit to the grilled onion/mushroom/fixins bar



Leinenkugel



Kim opted for the Red variety while I had the reg'lar

NOT SHOWN: Our visit to the (ugh) Kashi booth - Kim's becoming a Kashi freak, by the way - can I share this with you or will I get in trouble? Also, soy milk? DISGUSTING



Some of the seed art - there seemed to be less "political statement" art, which is always good to avoid in this method, I feel



Gotta get that Bjork, though. (Hi Sean Shannon!)



I tried to capture this tree saying "FERTILIZE ME" but it always took more space than was available on the sign. Joel opted to pose when it said "MULCH ME"



I don't think any of us want to imagine



Another frozen cider



Here's the DEEP FRIED PICKLE SLICE stand



And here's what they sell (with ranch dip)



Talked the rest of the family into sampling the Spam curds



And finally, one last trip to Schumacher's - two pork chops on a stick and one pork chop meal (kraut, dumpling, gravy, bread, and pork chop cut in half along the bread)


One more set to go: yes, we FINALLY track down the Sloppy Joe on a stick...along with a few other weird things. Look for it....LATER

So in all how much money would you guess you spent on food at the fair? (or is it one one those tons of free sample dealies?)

P.S. After seeing some of the food, I made a homemade pickle dog, they friggin rock!



Lisa: Poor predicatble Bart, always picks rock
Bart: Good ole rock, nothing beats that

Speaking of cops on bikes, keep a watch out this fall for the 50 motorcycle policemen (all on Harleys, too!) being added to the Minnesota State highway patrol. It will be the first time in MN history we had bikes on the patrol. Vrooooom!!!!!!!!
