In 28 minutes I’m heading to the State Fair!Â The most ridiculous and marvelous collection of midwesternness. Â Crop art, fried cheese curds and deep-fried pickles. Â Lumberjack demonstrations. Â Jellies and jams artfully on display. Â Lots of hunky farmers.
And corndogs.Â At the State Fair, there’s a long-standing battle between devotees of the “Pronto Pup” and lovers of the classic corndog - and much like the Vikings-Packers rivalry, folks have strong opinions about which is the superiorÂ battered-sausage option.
I went vegetarian last year during the State Fair (happy 1 year anniversary to me!), so I’m sitting out the corndog wars. Â But have no fear, I haven’t given up sausage entirely… Â ;)
