Three county fairs...and a solution to a craving

Sunday, August 10, 2014

and I only gave in to temptation at the first one, but that was because I was hungry when I went. However, since most of the foods were deep fried it was easy to resist when I thought about the price and what I was really paying for, deep fried junk food.

Seriously, a deep fried snickers bar and oreo cookie?? That is crazy!

One thing that I am struggling with to let go is ice cream and I keep remembering that my neighbor has told me that farmers call dairy cows "shell cows" because by the time the get to the market there is nothing left on them, they are skin and bones. The picture below is a picture of a dairy cow at one of the fairs I went to:



She will be my motivation to kick the dairy ice cream habit.

I have switched to "banana ice cream" to satisfy that craving for something cold and creamy on a hot day. I take a frozen banana, mash it up, and add a bit of peanut butter. Oh, so yummy! My grandson loves it!

    I don't know what all the deep fried hype is about. I had a deep fried oreo once, it was like a chocolate filled donut. I could take it or leave it.

    You think those items are bad - try *deep fried BUTTER*! Yep, you heard that right - don't remember where I heard about it, but I suspect that came from somewhere in the Midwest.......
