The contestants not also had to be creative, make something that would set them apart, but they had to make it a realistic fair food and quantify cost vs sale price.
One guy made something with seafood that the judges liked, but they all agreed it wasn't realistic in fair conditions. One guy had beignets on a stick, but they soaked up too much grease so he was ousted. It was on the Destination Channel. Worth watching for entertainment value.
And of course the trophy for the winner of each episode won the golden corn dog award

We are having spaghetti and meatballs. The sauce smells really good.

mmm, spaghetti You can't go wrong with spaghetti. I wonder if it's the most common dinner in America... It seems everybody eats spaghetti or some form of pasta and red sauce.

I'll be eating late tonight. This needs to cook a while before adding the beer and kielbasa.

I hear that the MN State Fair has been HOT this year. I'd go for the walleye-wildrice cakes, myself.

We made 7 qts of gazpacho today. We ate some and put the rest in the freezer. I hadn't really thought about freezing gazpacho before, but we have sooooo many cucumbers and really don't eat THAT many pickles in a year. The recipe was an adaptation of this one:

Canning Recipes - BallŪ Canning and Preserving Recipes

We upped the heat by adding chopped cayenne pepper and used more garlic, lime juice (didn't have a lemon left after all the zucchini fritters I made).

Thanks again pacanis for the garlic parm wing directions. My family LOVES them. I'm so full I can hardly move.

Happy Birthdays around to PFs and Andy's sisters.

We went to a local farmers' market in CT for the first time today. Picked up some heirloom tomatoes, a couple each of green zebras and some yellow globe-type kind I can't remember, plus a deep-red brandywine. Had one each of the green and yellow in our salads tonight. The entree part was less work than the salad: sauteed diced onions/add and sear bite-size hot dog pieces/add potato cubes and water/put the lid on till pots are tender. Should have used the last of the brewery beer instead of water - forgot it was there.

We're about to have our normally late dessert: farm-fresh peaches with a few raspberries and a *pffttt* of canned whipped cream.
