Food Flops at the Big E

Thursday, October 1, 2009

We spent the evening of the first day of October at the Big E with our friends Melinda and Big Tony.  It was like a double date 🙂

We had high hopes for some good fair food again because when we left we were STARVING!  However, we were disappointed with a few of our purchases…which made me mad because it is so expensive to buy food there.   So I felt like I had basically wasted money.  So what were the flops?  First, we each bought a slice of cheese pizza (for $4–yikes!) that was blah–the crust was bland and the pizza sauce was pretty nasty.  So then we tried to make up for that with a baked potato.  We each got a broccoli and cheese.  But it was horrible.  The broccoli was mostly stem pieces that weren’t cooked all the way and it was covered with that orange goo–I had thought it was going to be real cheese because a different type of potato came with the grated cheese.  The potato itself was not so bad, but it would have been a lot better probably with just butter and sour cream–lesson learned.  And the last not-so-good thing we bought was “fresh squeezed” lemonade–fresh squeezed my ass–this stuff tasted like sugar water.  Really not good at all.

But we did have a few wonderful items as well.  We HAD to get the Elephant Ear again–1/2 powdered sugar and 1/2 butter and cinnamon sugar.  SERIOUSLY the best thing at the Big E.  Kimm and I agreed!  Also got some cheese curds–yummy!  And another lemonade that actually WAS fresh squeezed.  MUCH better.

Right now I have Big E feet.  My feet are so sore.  I would gladly pay someone a bunch of money for a good hour long foot massage!

Tomorrow is Izzy’s vet visit.  She’ll get her distemper and hop on the scale to see how much she weighs.  Wonder if she’s lost any weight in two weeks with all the walks she gets?

Kimm and I are snuggled under fuzzy blankets in the computer room.  We made some coffee to warm us up when we got home.  It was COLD tonight.  So far we have held out and not turned on the heat.  We’re going to see if we can hold out until November 1st.  Wish us luck!
