The Minnesota State Fair starts Thursday, so this is sort of a preview for me. As far as food goes, I guess my family and I are just "sold school". We have our favorites and seem to just get those each year. Sometimes I will try to focus on favorites that I don't have the opportunity to get very often. For example, I love the stuff that is awful for a person, like deep fried cheese curds and mini donuts, but those can be had other places during other summer events and festivals. However, a Scotch egg isn't available as often, so I like to get one of those. Or, the Australian batter fried potatoes are sort of a once a year deal for me. If all else fails, the chicken on a stick at the pork chop on a stick place is pretty tasty!
