Only in Texas....

Deep-fried beer....

The beer is placed inside a pocket of salty, pretzel-like dough and then dunked in oil at 375 degrees for about 20 seconds, a short enough time for the confection to remain alcoholic.

I was going to mention the State Fair... but it was in the article...

His deep-fried beer will be officially unveiled in a fried food competition at the Texas state fair later this month.


And last years winner was...

Last year's winner of the Texas state fair fried food competition was a recipe for deep-fried butter.

And where do you think deep fried ice cream came from

It sounds bizarre but I bet it has plenty of folks willing to have a try of it. If I see it at the Texas Rennaisance this Fall I'll be sure to buy some

I am somehow picturing the attorney (who won that lawsuit for the lady with the McDonald's coffee cup in her lap) attending the TX State Fair.

Our NY State Fair is going on right now. It's been too hot to go and face the crowds. I usually go every other year, so this is my off year.

People will eat anything if it is deep fried and dipped in ranch dressing.

The deep fried beer did not make the cut. This artery hardener did.

"The pie has Texas born chili accented with a hint of sharp cheddar encased in corn chips." Yummmmm.

In a candy store near my office I recently saw something that made my stomach lurch...a chocolate covered twinkie and also chocolate covered bacon. Bleh.

I visted Texas for the first time in February (Houston) and loved the food. We had really good Mexican (unavailable here, good I mean), excellent Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese, and truly superb seafood.
