Victory over fair food!
Monday, July 23, 2012
For the past several years (6 years to be exact) we've been attending regional and state fairs (2 years at the "Big E" up in MA and 4 here in DE at the Delaware State Fair) and of course there is nothing quite as satisfying as fair food! Not good for you, mind you, but satisfying! Fried everything, etc, etc.
While not the worst food there, I do love smoked turkey legs, but the calories in one you can get at a state fair can easily top 1000 calories. So, last evening after the Styx concert, my wife and I were hungry and decided to get some food. Of course I got my smoked turkey leg, but something interesting happened: I only ate MAYBE 1/4 of it! I brought the rest home, but that plus 20 french fries (yep, I counted them!), and that was more than enough! AMAZING!! Previous years, that leg would be gone, plus a whole plate of fries and then maybe a fried oreo or a funnel cake! One sitting! No wonder my weight hung in the 270's for so long!
So I am declaring a victory over fair food. Not that you don't taste good, but I just did not need or want as much of you as in the past!
