The SCFF Is Rolling to a Finish

I spent my last night at the Steele County Free Fair tonight. Ah the wonder of frying things that have already been fried. Yes, bacon fried bacon is in effect.

Imagine lightly frying some bacon. Then batter it and fry it again - probably in the bacon fat from the previous frying session. Then pour some maple syrup and powdered sugar on top. OK, so it sounds wondrous, but in reality it is just OK. First couple chunks were good, but a whole serving was not necessary for me.

So on to washing down the bacon with a bison burger and Cinnie Minnies. Miniature cinnamon roles with cream cheese dipping frosting are the most amazingly beautiful thing in creation. Trust me.
