Eats and Scenes from 2013 Wisconsin State Fair, Day 1

Melissa and I enjoyed the sun, weather in the 70s and a day of food, animals and more at the Wisconsin State Fair today.

This was our first trip to the fair this year, and we're planning to go back there next weekend. So Here is our Day 1 mini travelogue of the time hwe spent traipsing around the State Fair Park in search of food and fun.

The scenes:

Our friend Dairy Carrie said this is a Mille Fleur chicken.

Beautiful flower arrangement in the horticulture building.

The eats:

Best way to start the day at #WIStateFair: Omelette and chocolate milk from Wisconsin Products Pavilion.

Pizza fries: Fries with a marinara sauce with sausage and pepperoni and cheese. They were not that great.

Beer-Battered Brat Bites on a stick. These are new this year, and they were delicious. The only downside: We didn't really taste the beer batter. Still, a good fair food.

Grape sorbet from Sprecher Brewing Company.

Fudge cake. Yep, it's as good as it looks.

We'll share some more stuff we found at the fair on the A Duo of Chefs Facebook page and on our blog next week.
