Autumn Salad in a Jar

Last night we rounded up the kids, packed them in the car and headed to our local Fair.  It had a petting zoo, rides for everyone and of course a huge array of food vendors both local and ones supported by the carnival.  After stopping at four different booths we finally ended up with one slice of pizza, one footlong hot dog, one long corn dog, twisted taters and a pulled pork bbq sandwich.  I almost forgot to mention the ONE water bottle that we also decided to share.  Luckily, after all that food we digested we were able to walk around in circles looking for games and rides for the kids to spend their tickets on.

It’s been years since my last fair and I’m surprised at how much it costs for a family to attend.  Just to walk into the actual fair
