It's State Fair time again here in Texas. When the State Fair rolls around, Texans know that fall has arrived, especially since the change in seasons is not as obvious as in some parts of the country.
My parents were in for a visit and had never been to this State Fair, so we decided to take part in opening day. We were on the quest for the newest fried food concoction: Fried Butter!!! Cardiologists around Texas are rejoicing! I can feel my arteries clogging as I type this.
Fried Butter is difficult to describe, but it closely resembles a small round biscuit/doughnut with a bit of melted buttery goodness in the center; ours was covered in grape jelly, but there are other flavor options: Original, Cherry, or Garlic.
I'm left to wonder what fried treat we will see at next year's Fair...
