Sydney Showground, Showground Rd, Olympic Park

I love the Easter Show for two reasons and two reasons only: glorious carnival food and small, fluffy animals. And because we're only allowed to come so close to the animals and taking them home is out of the question, the food is a much more satisfying exploit. I especially love my once-a-year conjugal visit with the hot dog on a stick - you seriously can't get ones like these anywhere outside of the Easter Show (not since Muscle Beach closed down years ago, sigh). The best part is how cheap all the food is! My mission was to always have something munchable in my hand.
So here are the highlights of our day...
Chicken shaslick, $8
Baby back pork ribs, $10
My lover, hot dog on a stick, $4
Cheese on a stick, $4
I'm havin' a Gouda time
Fresh lemonade, $5
Pacific oysters, $9 for half dozen
I love an oyster so fresh that you can eat it au naturel with a bit of lemon juice. So yum!
Caramel and fig gelato and mango sorbet from Art of Gelato Michelangelo, $6
Kransky hot dog from Wagners German Gourmet Sausages, $8
Fairy floss bucket, $10
I love saying "Hang on a second, let me close my bucket of fairy floss," like it's the most natural thing in the world.
Okay that's all for now. Hopefully I'll get some more free time to do some cooking in the next few days (yay!).
