If Josh is truthful, he'd tell you he's had enough of the Puyallup Fair to last a lifetime. He can take it or leave it. Unfortunately for him, I can't get enough of the fair. So, last week we took our family of five to "Do the Puyallup". We've been to the fall fair every year we've lived here (7 in all)and it's just one of those traditions that I'm not willing to give up. I decided this year, instead of solely focusing on pictures of the kids on all of the rides (which haven't changed much over the years), we'd eat our way through the fair (which is also something that is traditional)and I'd document our field trip to the fair with food. Of course, I did have to throw in a few ride pictures for good measure (mostly to prove to my kids that we did do something fun in their childhood). Enjoy.
Literally, 5 seconds after entering the fair, we joined the line for a Fischer scone(baking powder biscuit variety)with fresh raspberry jam.
Five minutes after devouring the scones, we spoiled the kids with their own cotton candy. (Sugar high anyone?)
Cotton candy was followed my personal fair favorite, "Elephant Ears". These are fried scones stretched and shaped into "elephant ears", lathered with butter and the choice of cinnamon and sugar or raspberry jam. We got half and half.
We topped off the night with chocolate & vanilla twist ice cream cones. (As if we needed any more sugar.)
Here are some of the non-food highlights:
