Sorry for the delay. I wanted to get more pictures last night for this assignment(more on that later). It is Outdoor Food and was chosen by Girlichef(whom I am having difficulty finding a link for). I put a little theme on mine as well. And went off topic.
I will start with Sundown Salute and a picture I have used twice already, but again, it was PERFECT for this assignment!!
This was taken during the Hamburger Feed which is sponsored by the carnival company and cooked up and served by the fire department and other people in the community. It is FREE. The lemonade, however, is not. Well, their lemonade is, but the fancy one in the picture isn't. You buy it from people working inside a giant lemon(I never got a picture of that!!) It is fresh squeezed and so delicious. Especially the strawberry lemonade!!
Another night I came upon this intriguing sign....
I had to investigate. Once I knew what it was I got one on the 4th of July.
It is a piece of bread, topped with mashed potataoes, covered with beef and gravy and shredded cheese and topped with a cherry tomato. Yum.
If you swim in the ocean with one of these you could become outdoor food!!
The next set of pictures come from the Riley County Fair(oh yeah, it's fair season here in the midwest!!). If you are a regular reader you have seen them.
I have rules for the food I will eat at the fair. It has to meet one or more of the following criteria..
1. On a stick
2. Described with the words GIANT, COLOSSOL, TEXAS, etc.
3. Abnormally fried
In California and Florida the fairs offered up such delicacies as fried candy bars and Hostess products. All I have been able to find in Kansas are Fried Oreos. Until I found this....
Fried Milky Way on a Stick!! They also offered Snickers and Three Musketeers.
However, the Holy Grail of abnormally fried foods is this...
A DEEP FRIED TWINKIE!!!!!
It is the original abnormally fried food that started the abnormally fried food craze!! It had been 3 years since I partook of the doughy gooey super fattening goodness that is a Deep Fried Twinkie!! It was heaven on a stick.
For the final picture, it is not going to to be of food. When I went to the final Junction City Generals summer collegiate baseball game of the season last night I had every intention of photographing the fattening ballpark food I consumed(hot dog, slice of pizza, nachos and cheese, funnel cake), but I totally forgot(I was too hungry!!). Instead I will show you a very special picture and give a little synopsis.
There were 4 people participating in the First Pitch ceremony. The final one was Frank...
Frank is on the Generals staff and it was his birthday. Frank is also on the high school football staff. He is at every game, he runs onto the field with the team, gets the crowd going and travels with the team. Have you ever seen the movie, Radio? Frank is our Radio. He is a very sweet and friendly man. I was very happy that Frank got to throw out the first pitch :)
That concludes this installment of the Friday Photo Shootout. Sorry it got a little off topic. I will try to stay on next week!!
