It’s hot and dry out, so must be fair time. Baking for the fair was always a challenge. Each time I would bake my favorite food, and it always seemed to fail. Every other time it was perfect, why not for the fair? Not all recipes are appropriate for the fair!!
As a kid growing up, I was scared of fireworks. The firecrackers were too loud, the big booms made my ears hurt, I was afraid I would get burnt, but despite all of that, I loved watching the fireworks show put on at the Rooks County Fair Grounds after the car races. We would sit in our pasture on our pickup’s tailgate, at the top of the “big hill” overlooking Stockton and watch the fireworks display. Best seats in the house.
