So, I have to ask...would you try it? Have you tried it? I'd have to say no to both. Even looking up reference pictures made my stomach feel uneasy.
Week 1 of my carnival food series. I have a blog post on this one up: bon-appeteats.blogspot.com/
The burgers and chili fries are also finally available in my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/listing/161537248…
Booths like the high school cheerleaders, the 4-H'ers, or the local Cattlewomen's club. Around here, the first makes wonderful individual strawberry shortcakes; the second funnel cakes that are light and hardly greasy (they form them as usual in the fryer, then once the outside is done and they'll hold shape, they whip'em out and finish'em by baking'em on a flat tray in one of several hot barbecues, if you can believe that); and the last burgers that would put even Carl's Jr so-called six-buck-burgers to shame for only $4.50!
As a result, the food is always good, thanks to all the grandmas and country cooks that have supplied the recipes! It's fun to go...competition in artwork, foods, textiles, clothes, table settings, veggies and flowers, and livestock from pigs and goats to horses in dressage, carriage, jumping, draft horse (or mule) hauling...and of course a carnival and a petting farm for kids.
That sounds like a ton of fun. I'd end up buying way too much stuff though. XD I'll have to see if they have that strawberry festival still; all your descriptions are making me really want to go back.
But when you do really think about it (eating pretty much moldy cheese), it loses some of it's appeal.
Like I love me some hard cheeses....chedder, parmigiano (the real stuff from Italy) and so on. I grew up on cheese actually lol...my grandparents were Greek and they had the good stuff.
Of course now I find out I have a bit of lactose intolerance. Which really sucks when one of your fav foods is just cheese.
