Fair Food

Did I get your attention??  The 4-H Fair is taking place right now down the road from our house.  I wanted to see the farm animals and take in some fair “ambiance”, so my husband and I drove on down.  Unfortunately, while we were there we got a bit hungry.  We started looking around at our choices……elephant ears….no……pizza by the slice….no…..deep-fried veggies…no….   Then we saw a sign for “Piggies and Cream”.  A fairly local company was selling quality pork products and homemade ice cream.  Some young (very polite) guys were cooking and serving up the food.  I ordered a cup of butter pecan ice cream.  One of the guys had literally made the ice cream that day.  It was creamy and delicious!  Yes, I usually say no to sweets….especially those not made in my kitchen.  BUT, once in while I imbibe.  I just didn’t think I’d be imbibing at the fair 🙂  My point in all of this is that you can find an acceptable, if not quality, food choice just about anywhere.  I prepare my own food at least 80 percent of the time.  When I’m out and about, I make conscious choices about the food I enjoy!
