Great…. a big cheese-filled pasta tube isn’t rich or filling enough to qualify as County Fair food,
So it’s dipped in batter and fried in deep fat.
And the Pennys need three apiece.
They must really save up for the fair!
A whole year of Scat toilet paper, Dollar Tree socks, and generic Coco Puffers, and then a well-deserved blow-out.
Cos if it’s anything like the County Fair here,
those manicotti are about $8.50 each.
And you know they’ll each have to get at least two little cups of the extra dipping sauce, @$1.25 per….
Let’s see…. $25.50 plus $2.50….
$3 for a soda… already over $30 a person, just after spending $7 each on deep fried pickles….
and long before the $6 funnel cakes… ooops $8, with powdered sugar, whipped cream and strawberry sauce.
And the day is young!
Make room for hot links, tacos, onion ring loaves, deep fried Twinkies and/or Milky Ways…
chocolate dipped bananas… nah, too healthy…
barbecued pork sandwiches ($11 each last year at my fair!!)
I hardly ever buy fair food…
I’m more tempted to stand near some food booths surreptitiously selling Tums….
“Just $1.50 for two, ma’am. Yup, a bargain.”
