Busy time of year. The Monroe County Fair is coming together, and will be here in no time. July 27, 2014 is the opening day. Even though we are done with 4-H, it is still an exciting time to see all the projects brought in by the kids. Crafts are being finished up, vegetables and fruits are to be picked soon, and the animals are groomed to perfection.
Before we know it, the sights, sounds, and food smells, will be surrounding everyone at the fair. What is your favorite fair food? I love the lamb shish kabobs made by my Greek friends, Nick and family. Actually there are two places that I frequent for lamb. There will hugs all around when we see each other. Loud and happy hugs. Last year I tried dark chocolate covered bacon. I really thought it would be gross, but to my surprise it was heavenly. You know everyone says that dark chocolate is good for you. Wink. Every year I try something new, this year I have heard that another friend Jenne from the taco trailer is going to have fried apple fries. I can't wait.
