I know, It's waaay past time for an October post.

 The Georgia National Fair has come and gone, but I wanted to post a few pictures. The weather was beautiful the entire time.
 Heather and nephew Ben with the "Fair Bear".

 Love this artist. She always has very interesting sculptures on display.
 Heather said there should be an "all you can eat" wristband instead of all you can ride.
 She loved the baby chicks.
 And the petting zoo.
 Very cute apron quilt.
 The 4-H "dress a scarecrow" always has some interesting characters.
 This was a walking talking tree man.
 My favorite part of the fair are the culinary contests. I entered two contests this year. The Sweet Georgia Peach contest and the Georgia Apple Contest. I won  3rd place in the "Sweet Georgia Peach" Contest with "Fresh and Fruity Salsa".  I won a nice ribbon and $50 dollars. Here's my recipe.

Fresh and Fruity Salsa

2 cups of frozen peaches
4 chopped Roma tomatoes
1/2 of chopped onion
1 cup of fresh pineapple
2 seeded jalapeno peppers
2 tablespoons of Honey
2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt

Blend together in a ninja style blender or in a food processor. Great with tortilla chips.

Leaving the fair in the evening. It was a fun filled day at the fair.
