Tomorrow We’ll Go to the Fair

Posted on

The sooner you sleep
The sooner you’ll wake
The night will go faster, as quick as a wink
The morning will break
We soon will be there
Tomorrow we’ll go to the fair

We’ll ride painted horses with wind in our hair
We’ll always remember the laughter we shared
The sooner you sleep
The sooner you’ll wake
Tomorrow we’ll go to the fair

The merry-go-round will go up and down
We will raise our voices and sing merrily
We’ll laugh at the clowns, who don’t have a care
Tomorrow we’ll go to the fair

~ Tanya Goodman, A Child’s Gift of Lullabies

It’s finally here! The Great New York State Fair is in full swing. Tomorrow we go to the fair, where I will eat a year’s worth of fried goodies and treats, which fly in wild opposition to the mostly clean way of eating I prefer. I can’t wait.

For tonight though, my Grammy and Poppa are in town and we’re enjoying the company of a few family and friends with a few simple culinary delights.

Smoked Salmon with Mandoline-sliced Cucumber and Creme Fraiche

Pizza of Goat Cheese, Prosciutto, and Fig

Pigs in a Blanket, ’cause they’re yummy.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies with Dried Apricots and Golden Raisins (recipe, here)

Chocolate Raspberry Ganache Cake ala Wegmans

And leftover Pulled Pork and Summer Peach Pizza!

See ya after the fair!

  1. GM,
    Your pics and recipes are making it difficult to decide what I will prepare for our first evening of entertaining in the new house. Each photo has me saying “oh yes, i will make that” and then the next photo, “oh yes and that” and that and that. I can hardly wait to hear the sound of the knife on the cutting board and the aroma coming from the oven. Keep up the food work, JT
