Fair food!

I visited the Alaska state fair Friday.
Didnít even get a corn dog because the fair food was so eclectic! I had food that I havenít seen offered at fairs I have been to in the past. Made the experience all the better.

I found oysters on the half shell from the Prince William Sound (really excellent quality) and Crab cakes too. Sooo freaking good. Also had a salmon quesadilla!! Wth?

Was fabulous!

Favorite Fair food?? Sound off!

1. Used to go to the Alaska State Fair, is it still held in Palmer?

Some gut wrenching foods at upcoming Texas State Fair as described in the Dallas Morning News. And I truly mean that if you eat them, they will make your gut wrench. How about Deep Fried Shepard's Pie and Cotton Candy Taco to name a few of the more digestible ones.

Just give me a Fletcher's corn dog smeared with good old yellow mustard and a Dr. Pepper with lots of ice.

I once won a ribbon at the Alaska State Fair.

6. Cotton candy taco???

Uh, not a fan of how that sounds!

Yes. A corn dog is usually the one thing I have to have. Mustard only please.
I didnít even miss it and didnít want samples of other stuff being offered because the oyster flavor would go away. Great briney taste.

This is the first time that I've been at my state fair, and wanted to try some new foods. Both of the selections below were scrumptious. And yes, I shared!
