Wisconsin State Fair


It is the time of the year again: Wisconsin State Fair. Every year, in the middle of the hot summer, it will be the time to go to the state fair for animals watching and cream puffs tasting. Even though I don't really like the high-fat content and sweet taste of the cream puffs, I still give it a try every year.

Basically, it is just bulk of the whip cream in the middle of two pastry buns. However, people here just eat them like crazy during the state fair.

Besides all the food and the show of the cows (lots of them since it is diary country here in Wisconsin), sheep, ducks, chicken, and horses, there are concerts every day featuring popular pop, blue, and country musicians. I might go to see the concert of Lonestar but not sure yet. I also want to check out the agriculture and baking competition. There are always some huge vegetables, fruits and flowers to see. However, the 90 degree heat the high humidity really make it not that comfortable to hang around outside. Well, hope that it will be a nice weekend and also got a party to go on this coming Sunday!

I think after all these weeks of dieting that one of those cream puffs would make me sick.

I'm slightly nostalgic of walking around in the heat and humidity smelling the cow dung. Ahhh...

I love cream puffs but I enjoy eclairs even better...lots of custard mixed with whipped cream and oh that dark chocolate frosting. YUM! Hope all is well.

I only had one cream puffs and it was ok. I guess it was a treat. I should try eclairs next time.
