Gotta Love a Food Festival

Ah me. Here We are. At the Oyster Festival. What to eat first?

Shall We eat an Oyster fritter from the famous Middlesex Lions Club? A bunch ‘o oysters slapped on two pieces of Wonder white bread slathered with cocktail sauce?

My friend here wants one of his own.

My friend Seco doesn’t care much about the food. He just wants to be warm and snuggly inside his peep’s sweatshirt. Cool. No…uh…warm.

Only in America do people eat things like this. Get a load of these pictures. (And We wonder why obesity is of epidemic proportions.)

No matter what We eat here, I get lots of love.

What You Learned Today:

  • This past weekend was the 55th Annual Urbanna Oyster Festival.
  • We went and the peeps ate oysters.
  • I’m so low to the ground, I hoover up all kinds of things.
  • YUM.
  • Do you like food festivals?

    The first picture looks like a bread line. I’d be on line for bread also, considering that there appears to be an all-star revue of every known artery clogger known on earth. (I’d eat them anyway-I’d go nuts in that place).

    I love oysters, fried oysters, oyster stew, give me oysters! I see sweet potatoe fries I could take some of them, the rest I will skip. Wish we had fried oysters around here.
    Thanks for being a friend

  10. Oh no! Where’s the Scottish National Dish : “Deep Fried Mars Bar” ???? Big day for you Stu – got ya bags packed ‘cos we’re gonna be voting for you – it’ll be great to have a Scottie back in the White House! BOL!

  11. Now that’s a festival we’d like to visit!

  12. An Oyster festival – you lucky thing you. Would love to go to one of those, although I don’t quite see where Deep Fried Candy Bars come into that 🙂
    We certainly don’t get that here in South Africa.

    Our mom, dad & Auntie Kym LOVE food festivals – they go to the Taste of Joburg each year and this year they are also attending the Taste of Christmas. We also have an oyster festival here in SA but it’s down in Knysna, which is quite a ways away from Joburg BUT mom has been there a few times, it is a beautiful little town she says.

    Now, onto your food! First off, dad would DIE with all the bacon wrapped food you guys have – he is a bacon-holic. Mom says she wants to try funnel cake one day – she’s seen it on the Food Network. As for the rest…you guy’s do a lot of deep frying!

    Hope you had fun!
    Wally & Sammy

    • Yep. Lots and lots ‘o folks do lots and lots ‘d deep frying. We don’t do much, though. But, the peep DID eat one of those fried oyster fritters. She only does that once a year.

      Now. A funnel cake is kind of doughy. Sprinkled with powdered sugar and kind of sweet. Everybody loves them!

      Roooodles, Stuart

  14. …bacon wrapped shrimps…you are a lucky guy, wish I would be there ;o)

  15. Wow, I fancy everything on the menu BOL

  16. I want one of everything that’s wrapped in bacon, please!
