On Monday, we went to the Great MN get-together!
Luke has been every year and this was Jake’s first year.
We had perfect weather and a great day hanging out as a family.
But. . . the real reason we go, is the food!
Here are the highlights. . .
#1. Pie in the Sky sundae. From the Dairy Building.
A sweet and tart mix of crunchy, spiced “airplane” cookies and lemon curd, topped with dark chocolate drizzle and served with vanilla ice cream as a sundae or malt.
#2. Mini Sconuts
Buttermilk scone holes filled with chocolate, marshmallow and Nutella®, deep-fried and topped with a dusting of powdered sugar
#3. Cashew salted nut roll
#4. Mini cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting
#5. Cheese curds #fairstaple
#6. Luke’s ice cream cone
#7. Scott’s vanilla and mint milk shake from the dairy barn #yum
And if you go to the fair, do me a favor and take a pass on these. . .
#1. corn dog – just meh.
#2. Honey puffs <-new fair food this year, but not worth it.
Deep-fried dough balls crispy outside and sweet inside, tossed in a sweet syrup and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.
And we had fun wandering around. . .
riding in style. . .
