1st Place and a Deep Fried Ding Dong

So . . . I did something I've never done before.  I entered an exhibit in the County Fair.  

I love to knit as much as I love to bake.  I also have a love/hate relationship with golf (but that can be another blog post).

This pattern is adapted from the "Fussy Cuts Blanket" pattern which is in the book Craft Activism.

I did make some changes to the original pattern - probably the most noteworthy being that I crocheted each block together and crocheted the edging.  

Oh, how I love this blanket.  I think it turned out beautifully.  

And to celebrate my 1st Place, I had a Deep Fried Ding Dong.  I have to say, this was a first for me as well, and it deserves a 1st Place Ribbon!!  OMG, it was delicious!
I had never even heard of a Deep Fried Ding Dong.  I asked the young man who took my food order if it was truly a Hostess Ding Dong that was deep fried, and he told me it was.

Well, I brought it home with me and had it while I watched The Bing Bang Theory, one of my very favorites shows.  I haven't had a Ding Dong in years!!   

Well, of course, I Googled Deep Fried Ding Dong, and sure enough, there were several recipes on how to make them.  So . . . I definitely will give this a try.  It didn't look difficult to do, and it will be a lot of fun to have at our annual Labor Day Family Get-Together.
