You’ve seen Women in Art, if not here then elsewhere. This is much like that video.
The Friday Fill-In meme can be found at Fond of Snape.
1. I think therefore I am.
2. I desire a Krispy Kreme doughnut.
3. What if pigs could fly?
4. The best thing about Friday is that Saturday follows.
5. When will I get that million dollar check?
6. The best thing that happened to me so far this week is I finished reading The Kite Runner.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to soundly sleeping, tomorrow my plans include returning the DVR box to Time Warner Cable and Sunday, I want to do nothing!
Every year food vendors at the State Fair of Texas redefine what foods can be fried. This year is no different.
Below is a short list of FRIED FOOD that Big Tex recommends you try.
Texas Fried Cookie Dough – Fresh cookie dough, made from scratch with pecans, chocolate chips and coconut, lightly battered and deep fried. Dough comes out the fryer warm and gooey, just like oven baked! Topped with chocolate syrup or whipped cream. Location: Nimitz Drive near the Embarcadero.
Deep Fried Latte – A delicately fried, light puff pastry, with a hint of coffee, is topped with cappuccino ice cream, sweet syrup, whipped cream and instant coffee sprinkles. Location: Nimitz Drive.
Fernie’s Fried Chili Frito Burrito – A flour tortilla, dipped in chicken broth for extra flavor, is loaded up with a heaping spoonful of spicy Texas chili & smashed Chili Cheese Fritos and deep fried until golden. Served hot & spicy with a choice of toppings. Location: Dock Restaurant inside the Embarcadero Building.
B.W.’s Original Fried Banana Pudding — Chilled, specially-made banana pudding is ladled into a grilled tortilla and fried to a crisp golden brown. It’s dusted with powdered sugar while warm, then surrounded by a cloud of whipped topping. Location: Tower Building.
Zesty Fried Guacamole Bites – Creamy avocado mixed with cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses and salsa is dipped in a zesty batter and fried to perfection. Served with ranch dressings or salsa. Location: Midway in the Thrill Zone.
Country Fried Peach Cobbler-on-a-Stick — Made-from-scratch peach cobbler is cooked thick with dumplings, rolled into a thin pastry dough and quick fried to a golden brown. It’s topped off with brown sugar, cinnamon and a touch of nutmeg. Location: Tower Building .
Mama’s Fried Sweet Potato Pie – A generous portion of third-generation-recipe sweet potato pie filling is spread on a soft flour tortilla and lightly fried to a crisp. Served plain or with a light sprinkle of cinnamon and powdered sugar. Location: Cotton Bowl Plaza & Midway
This will be my second post pointing you to useful information provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities. My discovery of the information in this post and the one just prior to it is a result of research I’m doing for a report.
Though the list of classic literature for young people is a summertime reading list, you and I both know that books don’t need to be seasonally classified. A book can be enjoyed inside on a rainy spring day, outside on a colorful fall day, near a fire on a brisk winter day, and on the beach on a hot summer day. I have a book with me at all times. I would be lost without something to read when I find myself in the position of waiting or relaxing.
This NEH recommended book list includes suggestions for children K-3 to 12th grade. I have many favorites on this list. Some books I discovered when selecting readers for my child, some I read when I was a child, and some I have read recently.
