I visited the NM State Fair today (thank god, I don't work there anymore) to see my aunt and her food stands. I cooked up a fair-ly gourmet meal just like old times, mmm, mmm:
Frilly fries--flat spiral-cut potatoes deep-fried in a cholesterol-free vegetable oil until golden brown, lightly salted with Morton's salt enhanced with iodine, and sprinkled with Frank's Hot Sauce (the original sauce used in Buffalo Wings). [Don't confuse frilly fries with curly fries, which are very heavy and grease-laden.]
Philly Steak Sandwich--a sauteed conglomeration of processed beef and mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and sliced white cheese on an EarthGrains deli-style soft hoagie roll, lightly grilled, and topped with Hunt's tomato ketchup.
Roast Corn in Husk, served in a twist of grease-proof paper, buttered and lightly salted with Morton's salt enhanced with iodine.
Unknown Appellation--an apple with a plastic cup of caramel sauce and a combination of walnut halves and crushed peanuts. [I passed on the cotton candy.]
2006 20-oz Diet Coke in a plastic bottle with a screw-cap.
