I heard on the news this morning that the Texas State Fair held it's official, Annual Fried Foods Contest this weekend. I've been here 22 years, and I've never heard of a contest for the best fried foods, but I wish I had, as I would have loved to have been there. One of their new entries this year was Fried Mac 'n Cheese!! Mac 'n Cheese is one of my all time favorite foods. It's something that I never grew out of, except I grew out of the blue box and powered cheese and make homemade style.
I can't believe the fried Mac 'n Cheese didn't win. Something like Fried Pralines won, yippie. What's hard and unique about frying a praline?
One of the other unique entries was Fried Coke. I wonder how they did that...
Either way, all these fried foods will be available at the Texas State Fair that is opening Sept 29 and typically goes 3 weeks. My mouth is already watering for the Funnel Cake!!
