Hot BEEF Sundae

The Iowa State Fair is currently under way and going strong . . .

I've only been to 2 fairs in my whole life.

The first time I ever saw farm animals was at the zoo on the lakefront in Chicago...

The state fair is a big to-do here in Iowa. It's 'Internationally Acclaimed.'

It's the perfect place to people-watch.

You'll see the fattest of the fat.

The hickest of the hicks.

The people that really love their animals.

And what are they doing?

Eating fried food.


Fried Twinkies.

Fried Pickles.

Deep Fried Oreos.

Last year the Food of the Fair was a Chili Dog On A Stick.

This year it's the Hot BEEF Sundae.

A bowl, generously filled with hand-mashed buttery potatoes surrounded by slow-roasted fork-tender roast beef topped with savory beef gravy, sprinkled with Cheddar cheese and finished with a ripe red cherry tomato.

The hot beef sundae looks wonderful...strange...but very tasty, indeed!

if you stare too hard 'Barf Bowl' comes to mind...

Then again, *I'm* the one that ate testicles!

I'd prolly eat it.
