Not an iota of guilt


I haven't had an elephant ear in ages. AGES. I would have to date it back to the last time I went to a state fair, which is easily 20 years. And, damn. It was so tasty. I was also very glad I'd had a vigorous, sweaty workout previously in the day. Not an iota of guilt. Pure bliss. And paired with REAL lemonade, made from real lemons? It just doesn't get any better than this.

Never had an elephant ear, but in Canada we have beaver tails which look pretty similar. I love those food experiences that I REFUSE to feel guilty about. So good, and yet mindful, truly an experience- I am trying to remember my last one, but can't just now.

It's fried dough, dusted in either cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar. Here's what Wikipedia says:

Oooh girl you are killing me!!!! Boy I could do for one right now. I'll wait until I get to ten pounds and then I can splurge a little. But I am sure it was worth it. I'm a little jealous... LOL!!!

Now I thought elephant ears were either a plant with giant leaves or an enormous mushroom!
I like the sound of sugary dough much better :)
Guilt would be entirely inappropriate for something so wonderful :)
