Hello Dallas Mamas! I'm so proud to be writing for Today's Mama and hope my blogs are helpful and fun. After reading a few of my blogs, you'll learn a little about me and my family. We love spending our time together and finding cool local events. Born and raised in California, I'm a little celebrity obsessed :-). However, I'm also an avid reader and enjoy art and music. I am a firm believer of seizing every moment, working hard, and becoming the best.

State Fair of Texas Sept. 28-Oct. 21

I must confess, aside from the Midway, I go to the State Fair of Texas to sample the latest and craziest food. Last year, I blogged about the deep fried bubblegum. This year, you may read about my tasty finds at this upcoming fair.

The 2012 Big Tex Choice Awards Finalists have been announced and can be found below.

Which one would you be willing to wait in lengthy lines to sample? I would love to try the chicken-friend cactus bites or the fried bacon cinnamon roll (what’s up with the bacon in everything phenomena?).

  • Deep Fried Mac-N-Cheese Sliders
  • Chicken-Fried Cactus Bites
  • Fried Jambalaya
  • Fried Bacon Cinnamon Roll
  • Picnic on a Stick
  • Fried Pork Wing
  • Fried Mexican Firecrackers
  • Deep Fried Tres Leches Cake

The State Fair of Texas will run from September 28 through October 21 at Fair Park in Dallas.  Although there is food to sample, the State Fair of Texas also has entertainment, an auto show, creative arts and livestock.
