Balloons and Fried Fair Food

It was a beautiful weekend, blue skies and no wind.   This was the view from our backyard early Saturday morning.    Not my feet, although if they were I'd be wearing flip flops all the time :)


I got my fried fair food, although it was really a let down.  I have always wanted those big blocks of french fries they sell, but I am usually watching what I eat so I never get them.  THIS time, however, I am SO not watching what I am eating.  So, with great anticipation, I paid $7.50 and got my humongous glob of french fries and . . . that's really what they were - - just a glob of greasy disgustedness.   They weren't crisp, they were just limp.  Yuk.  I threw them away.  Bye bye $7.50.  So disappointing.  The good news, though - - I will probably never want to get fair food again :)  Not even fried tarantulas.

  1. Ugh, that really sucks. I hate when I have something built up in my mind (and mouth) and it doesn't live up. The balloons were nice, though.

    1. It's a good thing, I guess, that the FF sucked . . . too expensive AND too bad for me :)

  2. Very lovely pic of the air balloons and story. Sounded like a very nice festival except for the fries part. That bites that they nasty and yeeouch on the $7.50 I think for that price I would have covered them in Old Bay, ketchup and vinegar and tried to eat them anyway.

    1. I love the crunch of french fries - - and almost anything else. My husband knows that when he's BBQ'ing to burn one for me :)

  3. The balloons are so beautiful, and the feet for that matter. If I had those feet I wouldn't cover them up either.

    A little chedder cheese and some beef gravey would have made those fries edible. We Canadians have really perfected the glob fries thing.

  4. Sorry about your french fries, should've stuck to the funnel cake and corn dogs. You can't go wrong with those!

  11. What a great view! Hot air balloons are always fun to see, I'm not the adventurous type so seeing them from the ground is good enough for me :)

    I think it was a good experiment to get the french fries; cost a bit but now you know not to "trust" fair food again; always will be a disappointment in taste I think. Somehow though, it always smells so good walking past it.
