Jim's German Fries

On Monday Hubby and I went up to the Hopkinton (NH) Fair. We love going to fairs but our reason for going this time was to visit my friend Sylvie. She and her husband and another couple started a little wagon to sell German Fries. Since both Sylvie's husband and their partner's names are both Jim ......well, you can see where I'm going with this, right? The fair was tons of fun. It was very big...had all the animals you could ever want. The 4H program there was excellent. It was fun to see all the young kids showing off their animals. There were also many, many rides ....which Hubby and I refuse to go on just on principle. Seriously, do we want to go on something that is taken down and put back up every week or two? Too scary for us. The ride prices were pretty outrageous too......$4-$5 PER RIDE!
What they didn't have were very many craft booths. Most of the stuff was "commercial" - such as Tupperware or pots and pans, etc. The fair we usually go to has lots of booths for people who make their own crafts. Also, the crafts booths were all intermingled amongst the food wagons. It was pretty confusing. And there were HUNDREDS of food wagons. Too many, really. I mean, how many different fried dough places does there need to be? It took us a couple of hours of walking around before we found Jim's German Fries. It was like finding an oasis in the desert! It was worth the wait though.......freshly sliced potatoes...real peanut oil....and mine all covered in cheese! Heaven! Jim's German Fries will be at the Rochester NH Fair on September 21 - 27. http://www.rochesterfair.com/ Check it out......and tell Sylvie and Jim that Karen says hi!
