This past weekend I was expecting people from out of town but I was the one who ended up going out of town last minute. I woke up at the crack of dawn on Saturday and arrived in Dallas right before noon. There was much to do when I got there as there was a big dinner planned for that evening.
I ended up cooking some Palak Paneer to balance out all the meat-filled dishes that were on the menu. I decided to use frozen spinach and paneer because it would take wayyy too long to make everything fresh. Nevertheless, I received numerous compliments that night.
During dinner, I inquired if the Texas State Fair was still going on. Coincidently it was and Sunday was the last day! And someone had 12 free tickets. How could I not go? We made plans for the next morning and decided to ride the DART down to the fair (DART was amazing…I felt like such a New Yorker :)). The train was packed with people all headed towards the fair.
Now one of the things that the Fair is well known for is the food there. You can find just about anything fried there, even a Fried Latte and Fried Butter (what in the….?). Way to up the stats of obesity in Texas. Here are some of the things we tried at the fair:
The fair was pretty interesting with different performances, auto shows, rides, games and so much more. It was quite expensive though. In no way did it look like the bad economy had kept people away. My feet were killing me by the end and I still had a long drive all the way back home. And many miles to run off all that fried food!
