Fun Fair Inspired Foods

Yum



I don't know about your neck of the woods, but around here Labor Day weekend is the official, unofficial end to summer.  Pools close, schools are in full swing and fall is just around the corner.  ALL things FALL are in the stores (yes, even pumpkins...a topic for another day, since it is only August) and town carnivals abound!  Our city holds The Last Fling celebration, complete with carnival rides, food, music and a parade.  It's the one last hurrah before the next season and the onslaught of the next.  I know, gotta live in the moment and not the brutally cold one to come.  :)

If you don't have an opportunity to make it to a carnival in your area and partake in that yummy, yet naughty food, have no fear!  You can make all the good stuff at home.  Check this out:

Meatball Sub on a Stick

Carnival Corn

Funnel Cake

Kettle Corn

Bucket O'Cheesy Fries
 Looks like you can have a carnival in your house!  
Only thing missing are the rides.  Carnival food is covered!

What's your favorite carnival food?  Fried oreos?  Fried butter?  Fresh squeezed lemonade?

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet,
