State Fair 2014
Just a beginning today. Java Jive cappuccino coffee (a tradition). Big fat bacon (delish as usual.) Strawberry scone at French Meadow (they've changed it to kind of pre-packaged with strawberry jam and no cream--disappointing), great jerk wings from Caribbean stand in International Bazaar, wild rice cheeseburger in Food Building (probably the best thing at the fair), pina colada from Manny's Tortas, Henry Singh came through with chicken curry rotti, silly good root beer float from 1919. BEST new thing, (only new thing we tried) apple roll-over from the fresh apple stand in the Horticulture Building. Some folks eating the deep fried lobster assured us that it's good. Next visit! Also, my friend Ellen won the Vegan entree recipe competition with her Hoppin' John stuffed peppers!
