First of all, thank you all SO much for the sweet well wishes and congrats on my blog’s fifth birthday this week — I seriously can’t even tell you how much I want to give you all hugs right now. My heart bursteth with loveth.
Second of all, the celebrating continues! Today I’m giving away another goodie for your kitchen/living needs, so get excited.
But let’s rewind a bit. It’s been a big week because we also made our annual visit to the Minnesota State Fair, a.k.a. our annual Put on Your Fat Pants and Eat All The Deep-Fried Things Because There Are No Rules Day. Over the years, Elliott and I have come up with a very streamlined system through which we are able to try as many new foods at the Fair as possible without having to keel over on a bench near the Tilt-A-Whirl and take a food coma nap. And I’ll let you in on our secret because we’re all friends here. It’s called: taking little bites. Revolutionary, I know.
We split everything and take just a few bites of each food we try, and then we either save the extras for later, toss the remnants (only in very rare cases, like with these deep-fried buckeyes that were delicious for approximately 1.5 bites and then tasted like a sugar bomb just went off in my mouth) or most likely, Elliott eats the rest of it. Because his stomach = bottomless pit. It’s amazing, really.144
