Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Texas State Fair- Fried Food Contest

Texas State Fair- Fried Food Contest

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!!

The fried twinkie is still the far!!!

Check out the landscape beds around the automotive exhibition halls. My friend Diane Roberts who owns Paradise Gardens of Texas has been asked for the second straight year to exhibit her work at the state fair. She can be found on-line at
