Week 37 - Artful Journeys-Go to the Fair

When I was a kid, I spent all year, every year looking forward to the fair.  Even as an adult I still look forward to it...more for the food than anything....things you can't get, and probably wouldn't if you could, any other place than at the fair.  Things like Chicken Fried Bacon, Fried Twinkies and Beer, footlong corny dogs, funnel cakes the size of your head, salt water taffy and so much more.  When I was a kid, I had dreams about the cinnamon rolls we would get every year at the fair.  As you stood in this HUGE line, you could watch them making the rolls, and I just remember thinking how much I loved all the butter they used, and the sugar, and the cinnamon...oh, hell, I loved it all!  Then there were the strawberry crepes...with a mountain of whipped cream.  And Dan's Indian Tacos.  Unfortunately, you can't get those at the fair here in Texas, so I've had to scour the internet for a passable recipe.  But I digress....

I had all these different ideas for my spread this week, but I couldn't get any of them to work for me, so I pulled up my PicMonkey and got busy doing a little pasting and what-not.  It still isn't what I was wanting to achieve, but after numerous failed attempts, I decided to take what I could get and leave it at here it is....

I hope you like it...thanks for looking, y'all!
