Deep-Fried Homesickness

Filed under it's fun to be fat, just pictures, no i really do love ohio

Thinking about going home to Ohio in a couple of days for Christmas has me really craving the kind of fair food I can only get at the yearly pumpkin festival in the town next to mine.

Fried Cheese

Is it wrong that I evidently associate my hometown with deep-frying?

    Even though I live in Alabama, where we like to fry anything that doesn’t fry us first, I have only seen Deep Fried Oreos at a booth in the Mall of America. And I did not even try one. :hangs head in shame:

    Fry it up! FRY IT UP.

  4. Jessica R. says:

    Sounds like my hometown.

    What’s that up on the pole, the state flag of Wisconsin?

  6. Fantastic Picture!
    I hope you will get a lot of deep-fried things very soon.

    You made a fried food post. On Hanukkah. Which is a holiday devoted to frying things. And did not mention Hanukkah.


    Can take the girl out of Ohio and put ‘er in New York… but…

    John is convinced we should market a product called FRIED. It will simply be batter that you can use to coat absolutely anything (including the batter itself) – who wouldn’t enjoy deep-fried FRIED?!

  9. Fried food is never wrong.
    And I love this photo. Of course.

    Great photo but I’m left wondering how you deep fry cheese. Wouldn’t it just all melt into the frying oil???
