It’s hard to be funny when you’re clinically depressed. But you know what’s never hard to do when you’re depressed? Eat junk food. Especially if you are Midwesterner of primarily Norwegian and German descent (which I most certainly am).
So obviously I have been fixating lately on food. Luckily for me, it’s the Street Fair this weekend! Ian and I will be going tomorrow (the kids might get to go too, if they behave. We will see.)
In the old days before the internet, pretty much the only way to find out what kind of food was at the street fair was to go to the street fair. If you wanted to know where the food was, you had to randomly stop people who were eating delicious-looking things and say “Holy stuff on a stick Batman, WHERE did you get that roasted unicorn leg?!” But now we have THE INTERNET! which provides us with nifty things like an online map listing all the food vendors and their locations(!) and a map of all the art/craft booths as well.
You know what would make the food directory even better? Menus of expected offerings from each individual food vendor. Even better if it had prices as well so Fair Foodies can properly budget for their Street Fair adventure. So let’s get right on that, Fargo Street Fair organizers. And you’re welcome, Fair-Goers.
Some things I hope to consume with reckless abandon:
- Funnel cake with strawberries and whipped cream (not sure if these are even on the map, but I really hope so…)
- Fry Bread Tacos
- Cheese curds, obviously
- Fresh-squeezed Lemonade
- Some kind of deep-fried dessert on a stick
- Poutine on a stick [actually I don’t know if this even exists, but it TOTALLY should so I’m adding it to my list anyway]
What are your favorite comfort foods/fair foods? (If you say raw broccoli with fat-free ranch dip I will punch you in the face. Seriously, don’t waste my time with that crap.)
