Before heading out to the fair, Suvir treated us all to some of the best eggs I have ever had.
Never before in all of my 13 years have I had eggs that were just laid the night before. And never in my life have I had eggs that tasted this good. I am normally not the breakfast kind of guy, but I gulped these down and asked for seconds, and I was even tempted for thirds.
The yolk had a beautiful, orange color, looking like the the rising sun was plopped down in the middle of my plate. The cheese had been perfectly melted into the egg itself, making it taste almost like an omelet, yet a hundred times better than the best omelet I've ever had. Actually, it was probably a hundred times better than all of the eggs I've ever had. I don't know how I'll be able to go back to real life after the American Masala farm. My mom better kick her breakfast up a notch.
After my stomach was filled to the brim, we headed out to the county fair. Where, surprisingly, the first thing we did was get a big Bucket-O-Fries.
After we were all even more stuffed than we were before, we went to see the cows. One of the baby cows got a little thirsty during the day, so he got some milk from his mommy. We also saw one of the cows being groomed by one of Suvir and Charlies' friends Brian Gilchrist.
After we saw all of the cows, we headed over to where the piggies are. As much as I love bacon, its kind of sad to think that these cute little piglets will be on my breakfast plate someday! Thankfully, the little boy next to the pig said that his family only raises pigs to be pets.
Finally, we saw all of the chickens, many of which, as Suvir pointed out, could be found back at the farm.
After we saw all of the animals, we (well, Suvir, Mattie and I, Charlie and my Mom were too chicken) headed on over to where the rides were. The swing ride was relatively gentle, but the rides only got more ferocious.
Finally, we have... the Tilt a Whirl (or some such name). I didn't like this one very much, to be honest. After I got off, I felt like I was going to tilt, and hurl. Somehow, I still had enough power in me to throw three baseballs.
After three tries, I somehow broke three beer bottle bottoms in a row, winning me this giant dog I like to call 'Puppy.' Sadly, I won't be able to bring Puppy home with me, as it might be kind of hard to get him on the airplane. He will be my donation to the American Masala Farm kids room.
I think I gained five pounds just by eating them, but they were sooooooo good!!! The oreos were probably the best, as the cream melted perfectly with the chocolate, and the Snickers were really good as well, as they had a little bit of a crunch because of the peanuts. The Reeses had a little too much peanut butter, but they were still pretty good!
After a great day of fried stuff and animals, we sadly had to head back to the farm. On the way back, we stopped at Battenkill Valley Creamery, where we picked up some chocolate milk, cream, milk, and some delicious ice cream.
If you can't see it, in the background is how much milk a cow makes in a day, which is about nine gallons of milk! The ice cream I got was cookies and cream, with the cookies folded into the cream right in front of my eyes.
They also showed us where they stored and processed all of the milk.
As if we didn't have enough to eat, when we got home Charlie made some delicious pasta straight out of the American Masala cookbook! If you have the cookbook and want to try the dish, its the baked ziti with vegetable sauce. If for some reason you don't have the cookbook, you should get it right away! The pasta will definitely be a favorite of our family's for years to come.
Tomorrow we will be headed to Lake George, stay tuned!
