Being a student of the University of Oklahoma, I travelled down to Dallas, Texas this weekend with my roommate for the notorious OU/Texas football game. Although we did not have any kitchen adventures, we had plenty of other adventures together in the city.
David Boren, the president of the university, always cancels Friday classes so it is highly encouraged for students to head down and support our beloved football team. Unfortunately my roommate and I did not attend the game, but we did take this opportunity to travel down to Texas on Thursday evening.
On Friday, the fun began. We visited Ripley’s Believe it or Not! and the Louis Tussaud's Wax Museum. The exhibits were incredibly entertaining and we posed with numerous celebrities, public figures, and gawked at unbelievable objects.
Saturday was the day of the big game and even though we did not have tickets to the game, we went off to the Texas State Fair. There was a smorgasbord of fried foods that I don’t think could ever be found anywhere else.
Fletcher’s famous corndogs were there and traditional fair food, but there were many foods unique to the fair. Fried cheesecake, fried alligator, fried salsa, fried bubble gum, fried butter, fried frozen margarita, fried chicken skin, the list is literally endless. During my time at the fair, I partook in eating deep fried snickers and fried brownies and had a little bit of a corndog. I would have loved to have had more but food was not the only thing to look at during the fair.
Hello, fried Snickers!
