You may have noticed that my posting was a little slow this past week. That's because around here it was fair week. For the past 10 years of our lives my husband & I have devoted fair week to working the food booths for our church.
Our church food booths are ran by our children's & youth ministry & raise funds for their entire year of activities, trips, & outreaches. Although fair week is hot, long & greasy, it's totally worth it to see all that the young people in our church are able to do throughout the year. I can't complain too much because I generally get to work the espresso bar, which I love. Reminds me of when I was in college working at the coffee bar in the student union building. My hubby on the other hand generally gets put at the grill whipping up cheesesteak sandwiches. This is a much hotter & more intense job. (Do you like how focused my son is in this picture.)
I love the food at the fair. I have so many must have food items I order throughout the week. The food at our church's booths is also wonderful, curly fries, cheesesteak sandwiches, steak kabobs, sweet potato fries, fried snickers... I love it all. But this year our children's booth added giant turkey legs. My hubby has been wanting to get our booth to serve humongous turkey legs for four years now. And a the 2011 Western Montana Fair his dream came true. Plus they tasted extra yummy!
We did manage to squeeze in a little fair fun with our kiddos. We mostly do the free stuff, like the animal barns. But of course grandma can't resist treating the kids to a few rides. It was my youngest first time on a ride. Since she loves horses & the carousel allows parents to ride along for free we did that. She LOVED it & was a little disappointed when it was all over.
So between fair week & house remodeling I have not been cooking or blogging much. (Do ya like my son's spurring action in this shot. He says he wants to ride bulls, but from this pict I'd say he's gonna be a bronc rider. My oldest seems to be practicing her trick riding. I love that we have real horses, yet the fiberglass ones are so much more fun.) I get to play catch up this week a little bit. I will have some yummy recipes coming up & a whole section on zucchinis. Anybody got way too many zucchinis in their garden? (I'm raising my hand)
