July 6th: my last day of going completely food-crazy before returning to full blown diet mode. It started with me making cinnamon rolls from scratch for my family and boyfriend, and continued with deep fried fair food. Every summer, we have a big fair in town, and besides the rides and farm animals and ultra-expensive car exhibits, the main attraction is the insane amounts of various deep fried food. In all my years of going, I’d never tried anything from their huge selection of fried foods, largely out of fear.
But this time, I decided to conquer that fear as one last hurrah before going back to purely healthy foods. I actually was able to continue my “avocado every day” plan because, lo and behold, they had deep fried avocados! I ended up trying one breaded piece, and then just ate the avocado out of the rest while leaving the oily breaded shells behind. I also tried some of my friends’ deep fried oreos, and watched with a mix of horror and awe as my other friend downed a triple-patty burger with Krispy Kreme donuts as buns. Followed by french fries and churros. I couldn’t help but photograph the whole thing–I’m so jealous of the fact that he’s able to stay perfectly fit while eating stuff like that without regard! (I ate a ton too, of course–but my entire body looked bloated just a few hours afterwards.)
Unfortunately, I couldn’t get photos of my own food because I only had 2 hands and no table and we were all juggling those buckets of grease–but I got some shots of the other crazy fair foods!
