More Grease Please!

The Del Mar Fair marks the opening of summer in San Diego county.  I look forward to it every year.  I manage to eat $60 worth of corn dogs, bbq corn-on-the-cob, cinnamon rolls, blooming onions, waffle cones, and candy.  In recent years, The Fair features a new, novelty, battered and deep fried food.  It gets lots of hype and news coverage.  Local tv stations interview people about it and get man-on-the-street reviews.  Past fried food products have included: the twinkie, the oreo, the pop tart, the chicken & donut bun sandwich, the klondike bar, etc.


Last year they added chocolate covered bacon, which isn't really battered and fried, but looks equally disgusting.  Just look at it.


I think I scooped some of that off my lawn this weekend. 

This year the featured battered and fried product is BUTTER.  Seriously.  Look.  I think the sign says it all.


I heard lots of people talking about the fried butter, but never saw anyone actually eat it.  My faith in humanity was restored. 

Then I remembered that it was a human that came up with this idea in the first place.

YOu do know that because I couldn't find any Chacon at our local fairs, I had to resort to making it myself. It did make for a good blog post.

I applaud you for calling it the Del Mar Fair, even though they changed the name to The San Diego County Fair several years ago.

No joke, Wendy is going to a potluck this Friday and she's making bacon ice cream. First of all: what? Secondly, who brings ice cream to a potluck? Oh, Wendy!

I've never made it to the fair - and I'm on my third summer in San Diego. I looove fried foods so it is definitely a motivation for me to get there!
