NC State Fair

This will be the third year in a row we will be going to the NC State Fair on the first Friday it is open. And of course, the weather this week has been beautiful - highs in the 80s - but Friday? High of 69 and possible showers. Of course. But my Mom and Stepdad are coming, and they are excited, Ashley is excited, Audrey, well, who knows what she thinks. I am sure she doesn't remember last year.

Ashley's teacher actually encourages students to miss for the fair, so we are taking her up on it. I don't like Ashley missing Friday since that is the day she comes home with all the papers for the week, but I just sent an email to her teacher letting her know about Friday, so hopefully I can get the stuff tomorrow.

And every year at the fair, there is a new fried item. Fried oreos, fried snicker bars, fried cheeseburgers. This year? Fried pecan pie. Not sure what I think about that one. We have yet to try any of the fried items, but Ray is SUPER excited about the NC State Ice Cream we had last year. Seriously, the best ice cream he says he has ever tasted.

a few years back I saw Fried Twinkies in Las Vegas. Up in the lights on Fremont Street.

I can't imagine anything whopping more punch (caloric punch) than fried pecan pie.

Did you know that pecans are the only native nut in north America. WEll, so I heard.
