Get in the Belly!

This past week was a week of REALLY GOOD FOOD!!!
I just got done reading, My Life in France by Julia Child... So right now I'm a little obsessed with food.
I went out to Senor Wong in St. Paul and had delightful morsels of Pollo al Pastor, Duck Bun Bao and Sweet Potato Fries.
The Duck Bun Bao reminded me of the Peking Duck I had while spending my summer in China 7 years ago. So very tasty!
Then the next night I went to my new favorite Thai restaurant, Sen Yai Sen Lek and OF COURSE I ordered the Pad Thai! My one and only love of my gastric life.
I am a self proclaimed Pad Thai snob. I love love love it... and I have found another place to indulge in my passion!
The following night i went to the MN State Fair. Pretty much the only reason I go is to... EAT!
This is going to sound like little Miss Piggy-ish but here is a list of all the things I ate:
Corn Dog
Mini-Doughnuts
Cheese Curds
Buffalo Jerky
French Fries in a (h)UGE cup
Chocolate Covered Bacon! aka CHACON, dubbed by Kristina P.
I didn't have the belly room or fortitude to eat my other favorite things... corn on the cob, Sweet Martha's cookies, GIANT turkey drumstick. next time.

My good\healthy\organic\often boring eating habits will resume this week. Wii Fit hates me and I have to make amends.
But it's good to indulge every now and again.


Live each season as it passes,
breathe the air, drink the drink,
taste the fruit, and resign yourself
to the influences of each.
~Henry David Thoreau

I am going to the State Fair in a few weeks, and I will find Chacon! Did you like it?

I had NO idea that you live in Minnesota. My dad was born there and we spent vacations there when I was a child. I still have family there, in fact! I hope you had a fantastic time at the fair!

I think you HAVE to indulge every now and then; otherwise you'll go crazy!
