I caught an interesting article on www.chron.com today (the Houston Chronicle website). It was a slide show of different foods being sold at the Houston Rodeo. After viewing that slide show I am fairly convinced that the whole City of Houston will collectively gain 5-10 lbs. over the next couple of weeks. I mean, this stuff was pretty crazy.
First of all, the rodeo is undoubtedly being sponsored by Wesson Oil or Crisco Oil or one of those food oil companies. Because almost everything is fried. And not just fried, but "deep fried". I guess that "deep fried" means it gets thrown into the...
