It’s state fair time, which means the culinary masterminds of the fryolator are hard at work looking for new things to flash fry. So ten-gallon hats off to Abel Gonzales Jr. who made it possible for the State Fair of Texas to be able to become the first and hopefully last home to a concotion of Coca-Cola flavored-batter dropped in to sizzling fat then covered with Coke fountain syrup, whipped cream, cinnamon sugar and a cherry.
And to wash it down? Gummi candies that smell and taste just like beer.
I think deep-fried Coca-Cola flavored batter covered in a coke syrup, whipped cream and a cherry sounds delish. I’d totally try that. Last month, I had fried macaroni and cheese for the first time. It. Was. So. Freakin’. Good. I was so disappointed when the local dairy bar where I had them didn’t have any more. Snow’s Diary Bar is out of “Mac & Cheese bites” for the season. Alas.
More reasons to hate Meridith. Not only is she smart, charming and funny but apparently she has a nuclear reactor somewhere on her that allows her to eat this kind of stuff without endangering her waist line. We had a fire drill at my old CXO offices on a fairly windy day and I and several other colleagues took to slipping rocks into her jacket pockets so that we wouldn’t lose her. I jest only slightly.
Mac & Cheese bites. I think I gained weight just reading about it.

That’s funny, CVH. And very kind. Ten-Q. I must admit, I’m right in the process of widening my waistline: as I write this, I’m munching on chocolates. mmmm….chocolate….aaaarrrrggghhh.
