Madison County 4-H Fair


It is Fair Time all over the USA.
Our kids were in 4-H so we have
spent alot of time at the Fair
throughout the years.


A local church has a food tent that
is very popular.  This is the line for
Ham Loaf.  Ham loaf is only available
on Thursday and there were a ton of
people waiting.  Since we weren't having
that, we could go to the head of the line.

What is Ham Loaf?


This is the only day of the year when
we eat Hoosier food.  People are always
shocked when I say I never had chicken &
noodles or beef manhattan before I moved
here.  And I lived in Manhattan!  This is
food unique to the Midwest.  And yes, that
pile of homemade noodles is sitting atop a
mountain of mashed potatoes.
I generally fall into a stupor after eating
this meal, but I go back every year...


To walk off all that food we usually
head over to the 4-H building to
look at well, more food.


I think we'd better stick with the
veggies for about a week...
