Yes, this is mmm-yoso!!! the blog about food which is usually written by one of three people (and occasionally by some other friends). Kirk is out somewhere in the world enjoying a vacation, ed (from Yuma) is also out enjoying this three day weekend and Cathy is catching up-on a post she thought about writing last July.
Hi. The title of this post is *not* a typo. There are two posts written about the 2011 San Diego County Fair and a third post to tie up loose ends was intended to be written...and, well, it never seemed to be the right time. This long weekend, when people are home celebrating Memorial Day and maybe thinking about the 2012 San Diego County Fair seems to be the right time to post. I wrote this because people asked me what I really eat when I go to the Fair.
The truth is, The Mister and I try maybe one of the newer, decadent offerings, but don't make a day of eating all that stuff. For one, it would be expensive and second, I just don't deliberately stuff myself at any meal.
There are smarter choices offered and you can still eat different foods than your usual snacks while enjoying the exhibits on the Fairgrounds. The exhibits and contests are the "heart" of the Fair- why the Fair exists.
The Albertson's Rejuvenation Station sells a variety of salads, fruits, nuts and more or less 'healthy' beverages.
...sometimes next to or within booths offering fried choices...You have to read the smaller print on some of the booths-or just look around:
The falafel burger and/or the artichoke sandwich from Roxy's is one purchase we make. It's great. Very large, on a wheat bun, topped with fresh, crisp vegetables and...I am not sure what makes it different, but it is. I've never been disappointed with either sandwich.
The 2012 San Diego County Fair has had some exhibits judged and it's being set up...that's another post. It opens June 8. This is a link to the new foods that will be available at the 2012 San Diego County Fair.
I hope everyone is enjoying this weekend and the reason we celebrate Memorial Day. Thank you to those who Serve and Served.
