The Minnesota State Fair was really fun and I ate a ton of good food. I went with my brother, Mom and his girlfriend. You think that people only go to the State Fair for food. There were tons of different things to look at. A swine barn, horse barn, and chicken barn.Who would have thought there were so many different kinds of chicken? I almost felt sad for the piggies in the Birthing Barn. They were cooped up in this glass container with hardly any room to walk around. Maybe they were there for a reason though. We also saw one of the World’s largest pumpkins.
For food we had cheesecurds, a chocolate malt, corn dog, homemade pretzel, bacon ice cream and apple cider. The cheesecurds were eaten up before I could take a picture of them. My brother loves those things.
There was a place that sold bacon on a stick, and we never came across it. I was kind of bummed about that, since I just wrote a cook book called 50 Shades of Bacon. Would I ever go to the Fair again? Probably not, there were way too many people there. I ended up gaining 4 pounds back on Labor Day weekend, which are gradually coming off. I figured once I started tracking again, the weight would come off in no time. It’s hard to track and eat really bad fair foods.
Apple Pie Crescents
I’m always kind of nervous trying food I’ve canned in jars before. I get scared and think that in 24 hours I’m going to die. For some reason, these jars aren’t making a popping sound when I open them up like they’re supposed to. The jar did make a suction noise and nothing smelled funny inside the jar. So, I hope we’re still alive in the next 24 hours. These apple pie crescents are a good way to use up canned apple pie filling. I’ve been looking for other recipes too and I’m going to make another one here this weekend. This recipe only has 3 ingredients: apple pie filling, caramel sauce, and a tube of crescent rolls. I used the reduced fat crescent rolls for these. You can use whatever you want though. So dang good and easy. They’re apple-pierific.
