Deep Fried Everything and the Bumble Bee
Well, kids, I am rounding day 19 at the State Fair of Texas. This show is always a marathon, not a sprint to the finish. I've been dressed like a bumble bee for days now and it was only fitting that an audience member, Tyler, came dressed as a bumble bee to our show. Yellow and black will never look the same to me. I know I've dressed the same way in 2009 and 2010, but I think I'm ready for a new look. How about blue next year?
I happily have indulged in delicious fried food this year like a little Chicken Express fried chicken, fried okra, hush puppies, and fried corn nuggets. Have you ever tried a fried corn nugget? Holy cow! Who knew you could fry creamed corn in a little nugget of deliciousness? I promise I have been working out a lot this time around since I have a few red carpet events once I hit the West Coast and the East Coast again in the next few weeks.
Finally, a high five to the chef who created a Deep Fried Grilled Cheese with a side of tomato soup and potato sticks from your elementary school brown bag lunch topped off with Sweet Tea and a pickle. Sometimes the simplicity of food is the best way to eat. *UPDATE*: I am getting a lot of inquiries here on where to find Deep Fried Grilled Cheese at the fair. The stand is just across from the main entrance of the Old Mill Restaurant. Enjoy! And let me know what you think about the amazing Deep Fried Grilled Cheese.
I will be back to all of my red carpet shenanigans next week, but I hope you are able to join me tonight (Monday, October 17th) for my appearance on the Driving with Gass show. Kevin and I debate the latest entertainment news....the good, the bad, and the ugly. I hope you join us by listening here at KWSS.org at 7:35PM PT/10:35PM ET. You can also join in the conversation on my Twitter account with the hashtag: #RadioBurtt.
