We have a standing date night from year to year. “What night are we going to the Fair for a Pork Burger?”
I had my camera along and took a photo of Minnesota Fair Food that is NOT on a stick.
ALL of the Minnesota State Fair food is on a stick…not so much at small county fairs.
Homemade French Fries, Cheese Curds, a Pork Burger and a Coke. We shared the fries and curds….uffda those curds were out of this world and the pork burger was awesome!
This was actually lunch and supper combined as we had been stuck in town most of the afternoon with a Clinic appointment and the Tracker needed some work.
We walked through the exhibits, visiting here and there. It is a good place to see neighbors and family…my parents showed up for a pork burger too.
I walked through one of the barns.
The sign said Pet a Bunny FREE! He was ever so soft…I raised bunnies once upon a time. I think this one wanted to go home with me…but I resisted. The goats were tough to pass up also…I had a goat once…I love goats.
My Name is Peanut My Story: I am a shorthorn cross heifer (girl) calf. My mom had my brother and I on July 11, 2015. Unfortunately my mom could only care for my brother so now I have a human mom her name is Stephanie. I get fed twice a day around 8 or 8:30 in the morning and 5-6 at night. I love to be pet and talked to. Thanks for reading about me. Enjoy the fair!

We walked through the Midway.
We checked out all the rides and talked with a few more people. Far Guy asked at the Sno-Cone place if they had grape? The answer was no…only Raspberry, Orange and Cherry. So we went without. If you are going to have a Sno-Cone it should be grape.
It was a warm day on the fairgrounds, there was a bit of a breeze but it was still warm.
The Tracker got new brakes and rotors…something was stuck and making a noise from time to time. It was driving Far Guy nuts…he kept rolling down the window trying to listen for an intermittent sound…now it is fixed.
*** All about the Cheese Curds that we enjoy in the Midwest:
Cheese Curds are squeaky fresh, delectable cheddar cheese in its natural, random shape and form before being processed into blocks of cheddar.
Fresh cheese curds are a calcium enriched, low-carb, protein snack. They are a healthy alternative to junk food.
However when you dip them in beer batter and fry them up in a fryer…they become fair food!
