It's that time of the year again... time for the Chelan County Fair!
Not that I really care about the fair itself anymore. I haven't gone out to the fair in years, because riding a Ferris Wheel and looking at giant vegetables and visiting animals that are being sold for slaughter isn't my thing. However, there is one thing that I do love about the fair...
The American Legion has a booth where they sell boiled ears of sweet corn that have been drenched in butter. All for the bargain price of just $1.00! All I have to do is find somebody I know that has a fair pass, then have them run to the Legion booth and buy me one.
It's pretty tasty.
Especially when you eat it with a delicious Veggie Corn Dog.
And a bag of popcorn.
And a tub of Snack-Pack Chocolate Pudding.
And a couple shots of Jägermeister.
And some Golden Oreos.
And some toasted bread with hummus and feta cheese.
Wah! I'm hungry!

HOLY CRAP!! The world is ending!!
DAVE IS EATING VEGGIES!!! 🙂 (and I find that hysterical that I’m saying that about a vegetarian.)
It’s nice to see you eating some vegetables, Dave! Keep up the good work!
oooh, i loves me some county fair buttery corn on the cob, too! but sadly, until i’m done with these braces, it’s a little more trouble than it’s worth… 🙁
You must be feeling better, that’s quite a list of foods
My grandmother was a fixture at the American Legion booth. The corn is the best ever. I loved the Chelan County Fair; especially the Round Up ride. I think that’s been replaced sometime in the past 30 years though.
There were huge trucks filled to the brim with corn last week in Eastern WA. 4 for a buck at some of the produce stands and beautiful peaches 7.50 for a whole box and sweet onions (medium size) 10 lbs for $6 direct from a farmer. Had corn w/butter tonight and it was mmmmmmmmmmmmmm good.
Don’t eat too much then ride the spinning whirlee thing or it’ll be back to vertigo for you.
Yay, I love gifs!
My day at the Clark County Fair this summer was the day I went from somewhat-vegetarian to completely vegetarian. All those animals in the 4-H barns were so sweet, I just couldn’t stand the thought of eating them ever again. I felt really bad that I had just eaten a great big Onion-Aire burger with cheese and enjoyed it so very very much (and now thank god for Boca and Morningstar Farms!)…
But seriously, how could you not enjoy the giant vegetables? I saw a zucchini this year that was unreal (I think they’re raised at Hanford). And why not go spend $80 throwing darts at balloons that won’t pop to win a ginormous Care Bear that cost $5 to make? Good times!! Then again, maybe you should just get the cheap yummy corn and I could send you my ginormous Fair-won Care Bear…
Nobody over the age of ten goes to the fair for the rides—it’s definitely the food!
Cripes! Those teeth scared me!
My favorite fair fare ever is the SCONES at the Puyallup. Have you ever tried those? Oh, my God, Dave. So much yum.
Wow, you eat all that you won’t be feeling better for very long! Geeze Dave, I got a little sick just hearing about it.
Do you remember the X-Files episode of The Simpsons, where Scully puts Homer to running on a treadmill and she and Mulder become engrossed watching his fat bounce? They say something along the lines of “It’s so hypnotic.” “Yes, like watching a lava lamp.”
That’s how I feel about watching Lil Dave eat corn.
Sorry. Geek moment.
Wow! You’ve made me hungry!
I remember going to the Sun Prarie Sweet Corn Festival every year while I grew up and lived in Wisconsin.
I miss it so much. Yum!
BTW, at the Sun Prairie Sweet Corn Festival, they serve over 70 tons of sweet corn every year!
That really is one of the cuter things Lil Dave has done, chomping om that corn! Now I want hummus and feta on pita, mmmmmmm.
What the hell is a Golden Oreo?
yummmmy corn is lovely to taste.
This is it for your post? Jeez, what a slacker!
Mmmmmm… buttery sweet corn. Yum!
For those questioning the vegetarian-safeness of Jägermeister because of the rumor that there’s deer blood in it, and was wondering if there was any truth to the story… the answer is none what-so-ever. 🙂
You’ll know you’re fully recovered when your digestive track uses corn for texture (see Cheech & Chong).
I love that adorable graphic! And feel like it was just for me since I recently posted this. 🙂
I’m not the only one?! YAY! I seriously attend the LA County Fair only for the BBQ corn. I butter it up and sprinkle it with some red stuff (paprika maybe) and sometimes lemon or lime juice. It’s fantastical.
PS: The LA County Fair runs from 9/8 – 9/30… Hmm
I’m not sure who you were responding to a few comments up, there, but you just got me addicted to crack. Oh wait, I mean Snopes.
P.S. I tried to do a strike tag for the word crack, but it didn’t work 😛
Looking at Lil’ Dave chewing with his mouth open, when I saw it say “hummus and feta cheese” I really thought it said “human fetus”…
I’m not sure if that’s my fault or watching him chew with his mouth open and grossing me out 🙂
And Dave, you might meet, and subsequently save, a wee little pig named Wilbur!
I’d call it, Bad Monkey’s Web.
We’re on the tail-end of corn season here… and I’ve had my fill. Still, a buck? That’s pretty good! Hope you enjoyed. (You must be feeling better!)
