St. Paul, MN

This is the end of summer. The “Great” Minnesota Get Together AKA the State Fair is winding down this weekend so we made the trek to see what’s new. Nothing has changed from year to year except for those few crazy food concoctions that you really don’t want to try! The novelty of novelty foods is wearing thin with each vendor trying to out do the other.

Our first stop was at Giggle’s to try some walleye fries. I was a little leery since I am not a fan of walleye but I dug in. Not bad I will have to admit. I think it was more about the batter coating than the fact that it didn’t taste fishy. An okay price for $9walleye fries

Second stop was to have a breakfast sandwich. My husband had mentioned on the way to the fair that he was in the mood for a McMuffin. Well, it wasn’t exactly a McMuffin but it hit the spot: a SPAM breakfast sandwich! I know SPAM gets a bad rap but when it is fried up with an egg and cheese there is nothing bad about it.  This for $7.00


Finally we had to have a dessert. The most obvious spot was at Dairy Goodness in the dairy barn. I just wanted a cone so I got the twist for $3.00 and my husband went a bit bigger with a strawberry malt for $6.00. The cone, for me, hit the spot. The malt had real strawberries and strawberry puree mixed with vanilla soft serve ice cream.  At this point we were done.

So, all in all it definitely a get together for the people of Minnesota but I am still not convinced it is all that “great”.  There is a lot to take in at the fair besides the food. We’ll try it again next year!

Because I have the opportunity to fly as often as I would like I have found some really good places to visit and have a bite to eat. It's all about finding what you like to do and having fun doing it!
