Umm … we went back to the State Fair, even after our fair food filled trip earlier this week.
I know that sounds awful considering how many calories are packed into the foods served there but we had some free time to spend with Emma and I just couldn’t resist. So of course we tried more new foods and I photographed them all.
We made our first stop at the Ethnic Village which houses several different food huts from around the world including one for Jamaica where we grabbed a jerk chicken, cabbage and rice meal.
And I needed these fried plantains to cool off my mouth after that spicy chicken burned off my taste buds.
While my husband was off munching on this giant “Elephant Ear” I took Emma over for something a little sweeter.
We hung out on a bench and shared this delicious strawberry crepe.
As if all that wasn’t enough we made one more stop for some ice cream. But it’s not just any ice cream, these are swirled with unique flavors like the green apple my daughter picked out.
And of course I jumped on this Oreo Ice Cream cone (my favorite cookie in the world).
Then on our way out a storm rolled in so Jon ducked under a tent only to have me drooling over my absolute favorite thing at the Illinois State Fair … Sutter’s Salt Water Taffy!
