We’ve taken the summer off at Hotdish & Catfish, but I wouldn’t dream of missing the chance to write about one of my absolute favorite events of year: the Minnesota State Fair (what else?!).
The time has come to ignore all common sense and eat more fried food than imaginable. The Minnesota State Fair is in full swing, and as always, my family headed there to celebrate my dad’s birthday and to eat, eat, eat. The fair usually signifies the end of summer, but this week’s outrageous heat wave makes the winter months feel far off. I outlined our food trail with the temperature in mind, trying to balance between warm and cool treats (not surprisingly, it’s harder than you’d think!).
