Sometimes you will find a food treat in the most unexpected of places. As you may know we have been searching for the ultimate plate of chile verde. We just so happened to find possibly the best chile verde ever made, at the California State Fair. We were actually looking for chocolate covered onion rings but "Rose's Mexican Food' booth caught my eye advertising for a 'Chile Verde Bowl'. I plucked down five dollars and fifty cents and received a bowl of verde gold. These pork chunks were tender and flavorfuly kissed with a broth of green chile love. Some rice and beans cooked with the 'All Mighty Lard' provided a perfect vehicle to soak up this green chile gravy. This bowl of green chiles and pork was so delicious a tear came to my eye. I was tempted to order another bowl but we had the rest of the fair to see.
We strolled through the livestock pavilion and spied this longhorn giant. He was impressive. The handlers would not let Ms. Goofy ride him so we found this ride from the Neverland Ranch.
With Ms. Goofy being happy we found another food find of jalapeno jerky. It was sold by two naughty ladies from 'Jerrys Cowboy Jerky". They were having a lot of fun. This jerky was a spicy meat stick of jalapeno joy. We hiked through the gardens and needed some more nourishment. Big Foot chased us all the way back to the food court.
Once we safely made it back to the food court, Ms. Goofy bought a corn dog and a fried cheese stick. This cheese stick will be classified under the "Don't ask, Don't tell" policy, it was that bad. We never found the chocolate covered onion rings but we do have the memories of the remarkable bowl of chile verde we had earlier. The State Fair runs to August 1, so you have a short window of opportunity to try this outstanding chile verde bowl. You will not be disappointed.
