Saturday Snapshot Take me to the fair!

We went to the Orange County Fair this week. My favorite part of county fairs is looking at the winning entries. Whether it's a collection of nutcrackers, themed table settings, decorated cakes or cute critters, I'm a sucker for those ribbon winners.

The food is right up there too! I am ready to embark on a diet (see picture below) so I resisted the deep-fried snicker bars and the pie-eating contest but I did indulge in sausage and peppers on a roll plus a delish funnel cake which Mark and I split.
I am definitely a city gal but I love these trips back to what feels like a simpler place and time.

  1. Some fair food looks good, and others are so greasy I don't even want it... Congrats to you for resisting temptations!

  3. Oh, I agree...I like to step briefly into another kind of place and time, with fairs, etc., but the city is where I choose to live. I found this out after living for 13 years in the foothills, from 1994-2007. Couldn't get back to the city fast enough!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. I'm with you. Love visiting the country but it's the city for me. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Old fashioned fairs are the best! It's hard not to eat all the decadent food they sell.

  5. This makes me nostalgic -- it's been a long time since I've been to a country fair. My aunt used to win blue ribbons for things like yeast rolls and apple dumplings. Yum!

    1. Awesome! Thanks Joy I will check it out. So far I am just walking and probably need to amp it up a bit.

  6. I have been to our state fair, but haven't been to the county fair in many years. My oldest sister one a first place prize in photography this year though - so proud of her! And those snacks are so hard to resist - you were very good!

    1. Congrats to your sister! Would love to see the winning photograph in next week's Saturday Snapshot ... although it's obviously much more than a typical 'snap shot' I'm sure.
