On September 24th & 25th Mrs. Wanda and I returned to Dallas for the State Fair of Texas.  Watermelon carver

Joe was wanted but he said the reward was too cheap!

extraordinaire Joe Poon and Richard de Los Santos with the Texas Department of Agriculture were both on hand for Texas Monthly’s Fair Food & Wine Event on Thursday evening and the opening day of the fair on Friday.  Texas Monthly’s event featured BBQ from The Salt Lick (which is just outside of Austin and it’s so good!) and music from Will Harrell and the Hounds.  Since it was held in the Food & Fiber Pavilion there were all sorts Texas-made treats to taste, including Fire & Ice Salsa.  I met a lot of interesting people on Thursday evening, like the Honey Queens, and I also saw Elsie the Borden Cow again. I was even featured in D Magazine’s blog, click here to see the post.


On Friday I had a ton of fun handing out recipe cards and coloring books while culinary students passed out juicy slices of watermelon and my favorite treat, Fire & Ice Salsa! So many people stopped by our booth on the opening day of the fair but luckily I had enough time to grab a foot-long corn dog for lunch (the best fair food in my opinion).  After taking a quick photo with Big Tex, Mrs. Wanda and I were on the road again to San Antonio and Round Rock for in-store promotions.
