This past Sunday I made it to the last day of the LA County Fair.
The fair, or any county fair for that matter, is synonymous with gluttony. What else is there to do besides check out the demonstration, the petting zoo, the pig races, and play the carnival games? Eat, eat, and eat. Did I forget eating?
The food at the fair is usually pretty good. There’s no denying it. I have my favorites and I also have discovered new delicacies each of the past 4 years I’ve gone. Well, the first 3 years I went to the Orange County Fair, which is basically the same thing.
So this year, I went expecting myself to eat quite a bit. Funny thing was I wasn’t even very hungry when we showed up Sunday afternoon, but I knew once we got inside, that wasn’t going to stop me.
I started out with BBQ corn, which they dip in melted butter and offer various seasonings to sprinkle on as well as things like vinegar and lemon juice. I sprinkled a little bit of lemon garlic powder and pepper on mine. I then shared a turkey leg with my friend, which meant that she took maybe 6 bites and gave me the rest, which I didn’t have a problem with because I tore that thing up. I got it down all the way to the bone and left very little meat on it.
We moved on and made our way to Chicken Charlie’s, where the fried chicken smelled so good but I wasn’t totally in the mood for it, so I just got a deep fried twinkle and an order of deep fried oreos. I’ve had both before, but they were so good. I’m a little sad I didn’t see deep fried love me tenders anywhere. A love me tender is a peanut butter, banana, and honey sandwich. It was Elvis’ favorite snack and is probably what sent him packing for Heaven, haha. Don’t quote me on that. But I had them last year at the OC Fair and it was REALLY good.
We made our way into the Lifehouse concert and we all shared a basket of kettle chips.
Not for one moment did I feel full. I probably could have had another turkey leg and still not be full.
