Don't Blow Your Diet.

It's the most wonderful time of the year for casual eaters... the Arkansas State Fair begins this Friday with its usual combination of loud music, amusement rides, barns full of show animals, a hall full of neat arts and crafts and of course food. Lots of food.

I mentioned earlier the unusual offering ahead for this year's attendees -- the Elvis Sandwich, a deep fried peanut butter and strawberry jam and banana confection.  Of course, there will also be strange Fair fare from years past, including Fried Dr. Pepper (pictured here), Pig Lickers (the eponymous chocolate slathered bacon slices) and Fried Oreos. 

Can you really do the foods of the midway and keep your figure?  Advice from the Cooperative Extension Service available.
