I received a really super cool email the other day. I was asked to be a Judge in the “Cookie” Division at the Tennessee State Fair this year! How cool is that?!?

I even get to have a name tag that says “Honey, the Water’s on Fire”! WOW! I am so very very excited. I have never even been to our state fair, but man I wish it was tomorrow!

So, needless to say, I have been thinking about fair food all week… I put out a question to my Facebook followers and asked them what their favorite foods from the fair was. Quite a few like the candied apples. (YUM) One friend even said that her fair does fried vegetables made with a batter similar to onion rings. I could just keep going and going here.

I know, so totally UNHEALTHY. The way I see it, fairs are once a year. Not gonna kill ya’.

We have a drive-in movie theatre pretty close to us that has some amazing food there. Kinda like going to the fair. They have pizza, fried chicken, tater logs (who doesn’t love a tater log?), loads of candy, funnel cakes, and **sigh** fried oreos! We ate the oreos for the first time last week. I swear if it came down to it, I would leave my husband for a deep fried oreo. Think I’m joking? lol

Soooo, we set out to recreate the tasty confection we had at the Montana Drive-In in Estill Springs!

YUM! I didn't claim to be a healthy blog, did I?
So if you are going to the Tennessee State Fair in September, stop by and see me when I get to judge (and consume) loads of tasty cookies!!!

Tater logs? Need that recipe too!

It would be great if the recipe included instructions on how to make Oreos. Feels like cheating to use a store-bought dessert to make a dessert.
