West Side Nut Club Fall Festival

It's been awhile since I've blogged anything. With school going on and family life, things are pretty busy for me right now. Classes are still going well and keeping me hopping daily. There isn't much time for fun stuff at this point, but we make time for it whenever we have the chance. Thursdays are always good and has become known as "Mamaw Thursday". I've been trying to pick Jonah up on Thursdays from daycare so Papaw and I can spend some time with him. This also allows his Mommy some alone time. It's a win-win situation :)

Recently we were able to get away for an evening at the annual West Side Nut Club Fall Festival. It's supposed to be the second largest street festival in the USA according to my sources :) There are over 120 food booths manned by mostly non-profit organizations selling anything from hot dogs, frog legs, brain sandwiches to a kangurrito burrito. They publish a munchie map from which you can select your chosen food and then locate the booths selling that item. The booths open up for the lunch crowds and you wouldn't believe the people that are there in the middle of the day. It's a hopping place! We went on the Saturday evening and purchased corn on the cob followed by blackberry cobbler a la mode. Hubby got some burgoo and I finished Jonah's hot dog and Bishnu tried the shrimp. I tried the deep fried cookie dough but it as way too rich for me after 2 small bites. Chanel was wanting some polish sausage and I'm not sure if she ever got any or not. I'm looking forward to going next year.

Looks like a fun time! I love those corn hats! My husband is from NE and I call him corncob sometimes. That would be a fun little gag gift for him!
