It’s Not Fair

It’s not fair that I get to go to two different fairs this year – The O.C. Fair (that I attended last month) and the L.A. County Fair that I went to today :)  IMG_1423

My mom, little brother and I hit the fair this afternoon. My mom read about a special deal where if you bring 5 cans of food to donate to the LA Food Bank you get in free.

A good cause and a free ticket? Sign me up.IMG_1421

It’s not fair that my mother tempted me with a Cinnamon Roll within minutes of arriving. I took two bites, but wasn’t super impressed. IMG_1434 IMG_1436 

It’s not fair that I looked high and low for a baked sweet potato since I swore I saw them one year. We finally settled on sharing sweet potato fries. I genuinely like baked sweet potato better though :)IMG_1456

The fair had a really cool dinosaur exhibit. I still love learning about dinosaurs.IMG_1452 IMG_1449

But it’s not fair that one of my favorite dinosaurs was dying in the exhibit.

I guess it’s only fair that after getting my ring cleaned, I bought the cleaner. That sales guy did a great job. Sparkly!IMG_1446 IMG_1441 

 It’s not fair that I can’t get a VitaMix. Um, $500.00 for a blender? You must have me mistaken with someone who didn’t just spend all their savings moving across the country for the second time in one year…IMG_1429 Still, not fair.IMG_1430

It’s not fair that the only vegetarian option around was falafel. But, I actually love falafel so I’m fine with it. IMG_1460

 It’s also not fair that because I wanted a veggie option, I missed out on the opportunity to order a  BIG FAT SAUSAGE. I bet it’s super filling too. Darn. IMG_1463

It’s not fair that my little brother insisted on getting a deep fried twinkie… IMG_1465

The reason it’s not fair is, as any food blogger worth their salt  sugar knows -  the deep fried Oreo is much better.


Obviously, he liked it. IMG_1466

At least the detox juice and wheat grass shot I got before I went to the fair cancels all this junk out right? IMG_1417I mean, if it doesn’t that’s just not fair… 

Question: Did you go to your local fair this year? What’s the best thing you ate there?

    Gosh, we only have one fair that I know about, here in the Atlanta area. It’s actually 45 minutes away from the city and runs for about two weeks in the fall. I always want to go ride the rides, but I’m always afraid I’ll be on the evening news from a ride malfunctioning. Guess fairs just aren’t as big down here. :(

    I have yet to try a deep fried…anything! The Oreo sounds promising. :)

    I tend not to go to fairs. The last one we went to earlier this summer was mostly just people trying to sell stuff and crappy junk food.

    And I’m not talking about the “tastes so good, but it’s so bad for your body” kind. I mean the kind where it looks like crap, tastes like crap, and basically is just crap!
