If you're trying to eat right, this may be a tough evening for you. I agree with the experts that everyone should be aiming to get more fruits and veggies into their diet, but it's not gonna happen at a good ole country carnival. Let me explain my carnival eating plan. I like to begin with an "appetizer" which could be a small box of popcorn or one of those big ass pretzels, but not both. Next I go in for the signature "sausage and pepper grinder", a specialty at the New Fairfield Carnival.

After some skee ball, maybe some whack-a-mole, and a couple of rides, I'm ready for some carnival desert...........my favorite is a large cherry snowcone! Whatever you do, do not ride the tea cups after you've just consumed a cheeseburger or a sausage and pepper grinder......have a blast!!
