Texas State Fair made a couple of showings! Texans all over smile with pride as we grab the TEXAS SIZED TUMS, and have them ready Sept. 30th- Oct. 23rd.2011 Top 10 State Fair Foods list (Perez)10. Chocolate Covered Corn Dog — The Orange County State Fair:
Don't waste your time with strawberries! Grab a deep fried hot dog, dip it in chocolate and don't forget to compliment it with rainbow sprinkles!
9. Deep Fried Kool-Aid — San Diego County Fair:
We can't explain it any better than the name does, but it looks like this.
8. Deep Fried Butter On A Stick — Iowa State Fair:
Apparently this fair wasn't the first to do it, but it was the first we've ever heard of it. It's a stick of butter, stuck with a stick, dipped in batter, then deep fried for three minutes. Don't forget to garnish it with a sweet glaze.
7. Buffalo Chicken in a Flapjack — Texas State Fair:It's a chicken strip coated in pancake batter and jalapeno bread crumbs, then deep fried to perfection before being served on a stick. We think the next logical evolution in deep fried foods on sticks is to include edible deep fried sticks!6. Red Velvet Funnel Cake — Florida State Fair:
Red velvet cupcakes are a delicious treat, so naturally we bet red velvet funnel cakes are too! As long as they don't skip out on the cream cheese icing, we'd actually give this a try! It doesn't have a stick though. Bummer! Maybe on the side?
5. El Bananarito — Texas State Fair:
Translates to "roll a banana in a flour tortilla, deep fry the whole thing, then top it with whipped cream, powdered sugar, and chocolate sauce."
4. Chocolate Covered Jalapeno Poppers — Minnesota State Fair:
Deep fried jalapeno peppers stuffed with cream cheese…then dipped in chocolate? Genius! We're willing to bet these will be coated with a layer of peanuts by 2012.
3. Deep Fried Salsa — Texas State Fair:These bad boys are described as "jalapenos, roasted garlic, onion, tomato, and pepper rolled together, dipped in masa, covered in crumbled tortilla chips, and fried, with queso dip on the side."2. Breakfast Lollipop –- Minnesota State Fair:
It's kinda like a McGriddle with a stick. To be honored as a "breakfast lollipop", a sausage patty must first be dipped in corn muffin batter, deep fried, then covered in maple syrup.
1. Fried Ice Cream Burger — Florida State Fair:
Yes, it's that big nasty burger pictured above that made you read this post to begin with. A mouth watering bacon cheeseburger with the works, which includes a scoop of cornflake-battered, deep fried ice cream.

Apples, celery and strawberries are at the top of the latest "Dirty Dozen" list compiled by the Environmental Working Group, while onions, sweet corn and pineapples are among the "Clean 15" fruits and vegetables the EWG says are least likely to carry pesticide residue.
In releasing theÂ 2011 Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce, its seventh edition, the advocacy group emphasized that the health benefits of a diet abundant with fruits and vegetables outweigh the risk of pesticide exposure.
Below isÂ a list of the Dirty Dozen and the Clean 15:

Summer can often seem busier than other times of the year, with vacation, entertaining the kids while school's out, etc.
In the midst of all this activity, we sometimes forget that not everyone is able to do these things, particularly people who are homebound du to illness or other reasons.
That's why Meals On Wheels and More is so vital to our community, providing meals for people who are otherwise unable to cook for themselves. The organization relies on dedicated volunteers to transport 90 percent of the one million meals it distributes each year throughout the Austin area.
With summer approaching,MOWAM is facing a shortage of drivers to cover its routes, and more cancellations are expected due to summer commitments. 40 of these routes are currently open, which means they don't have regular drivers assigned to them, and are having to be covered by paid drivers. This raises administrative costs, including gas.
Meals On Wheels and More is looking for both regular and substitute drivers, particularly in north Austin and areas east of I35. If you can help, visit their website at:
