The Texas State Fair is, as you may know, home to deep fried goodness. They fry shit you wouldn't even think could be fried, like Coke. Someday I will journey to this mecca of deliciousness, but for now I will have to content myself with reading the list of finalists at this year's fair, and possibly trying to duplicate some of them at home. I think Chicken-fried bacon would be very do-able for the home cook, for instance! Oh G-d, and with ranch sauce?? Excuse me while I attempt not to fry my precious laptop with drool.
Of course special mention must go to Chocolate Covered Strawberry Waffle Balls cause, well, if that doesn't sound an awful lot like Chef's Chocolate Salty Balls I don't know what does. Plus, balls. Hee hee.
