We went to The Big E today. More on what we actually did (not much) later. First, mainly since CL is a retired Foods & Nutrition teacher, we decided to present a pictorial commentary on a potential cause of obesity in America. Our favorites (not to eat, but to ridicule) include the fried cheesecake with chocolate sauce, the fried Oreos, and the Craz-E Burger (a large bacon cheeseburger served on a glazed donut). And there's always the batter dipped, deep fat fried mushrooms. Aren't they a vegetable? These pictures, by the way, represent only a small percentage of food booths at the Big E. As usual, click on any image to see it in all its fattening glory.
And what are cheese curds, anyway?
This is quite a contrast to what I remember as a child when our family went. We'd all sit down at tables in a tent and eat a turkey dinner, prepared and served by members of a local church.
