Thanks to the Ohio Poultry Association for sending us to the Ohio State Fair! We had an EGGcelent time!

Outside Katrinas Kitchen

I am a bad blogger. Bad bad blogger. Well, I’m a bad summer blogger. I just can’t help it- I have 2 little guys who love to be outside soaking up the sun. We’ve eaten festival food and ridden lots of ferris wheels. We’ve soaked up the sun on the shores of Virginia Beach with some dear friends who spoiled our kids and gave them a taste of beach life. We watched rats play basketball and made robots disco dance at COSI. We groomed goats and were spit on by animatronic dinosaurs at the Columbus Zoo. Add in lots of swimming, overnight trips to Grandma’s, celebrating the college graduation of the boys’ favorite aunt ;), and a little {big} behind-the-scenes project that I’m working on I just haven’t had time to drop by here and bake for you. I promise lots of deliciousness coming your way so stick with me!

Recently I was contacted to participate in a special press event set up by the Ohio Poultry Association. If you get an email asking if you want to spend a day at the Ohio State Fair with your whole family and let your kids get up close and personal with the chickens and some of the farmers that take care of them you should say yes! My boys met all sorts of chickens, ducks, and turkeys and watched with wonder as a baby chick hatched right before their eyes.

After being schooled on how to make the perfect omelette (our trusty Jim swears by adding water not milk or cream) and filling our tummies with farm fresh eggs we were off to experience the rides and games of the Ohio State Fair. My boys and niece rode all day long and I came home with an injured tailbone. From a SLIDE of all things. No comments about that. One week later and I still can’t even stand up from a seated position without pain. I’m an old lady.

Of course we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit our friends at The American Dairy Association Mideast and give the cows some love.  They treated us to ice cream as we admired the famous Butter Cow and her calf. BUTTER COW! It was a sight to behold for sure. MMmmmMMMm butter. {{You can read about my fun Ohio Dairy Adventure last fall here.}}
