Calories Don't Count At The State Fair

Mother Nature gives Chicago a handful of perfect days.  Today is one of them.  I'm so grateful to sit on my balcony and enjoy this weather.  I'm making plans to see Buckingham Fountain tonight.  I love Grant Park.  Nothing is more beautiful than the lights glowing against the backdrop of Lake Michigan. 

I'll be close to Taylor Street. I can stop for an Italian lemonade and a beef sandwich.  So grateful that I can do these things.  I had too much fun a few weeks back at the Ohio State Fair.  LOVED my corn on the cob.  I actually went out of my way to eat foods I normally take for granted.  I stopped to smell the aroma of meat on a grill.  Funnel cakes with powdered sugar.  Love.  I saw a life sized cow made out of butter. 

Once upon a time, Blago was cutting the ribbon at the Illinois State Fair.  He probably hated the idea of going there. There's one county fair left at the end of August.  This one is in Elkhorn, Wisconsin.  Funnel cakes.  Enjoy life!
