three

street fair fare  
tho
 after the last one 
seeing
 that vendor handling money
 with
 the same protective gloves
 he handled the food with
I am not sure 
I am eating 
anything on the street

 however

 these are amazing looking
 they are crisp potato twirls
 cut 
with some special Popeil gadget 
(Google Ron Popeil, go ahead)
 so they are twirly 
and 
on those skewers
 as they are plunged
 into 
hot grease
 and 
fried 
and 
salted
 ... sigh ... 
I am sure 
they have no calories at all
 as they are eaten whilst walking
 which 
of course 
automatically 
cancels all the calories,
 if my late Aunt Molly were here 
she'd tell you that's true
oh 
she
 also
 claimed
 ice cream
 had
 no fat 
calories

  3. Aunt Molly knew her stuff.

    We have a little bit of street food here in Tulsa. I just don't eat it. Those of yours look good.

  4. No calories...I agree! It's like broken cookies...when they break, the calories escape into the universe. I had this treat down the shore and they made them in all different flavors...garlic, cheese, etc. Yum!

    I like Aunt Molly
    and
    I remember Popeil!

  8. Hey, those DO look good. I'm not a fried-food person, but succumb occasionally. Cool off the hot potatoes with some ice cream....

  9. I tried to guess what they were before scrolling down. I assumed food, but I thought fried dough of some kind. Love Ron Popeil, by the way. The Edison of weird.

  10. Your Aunt Molly knows my mother... ; )
    There are no calories in chocolate, either.

  12. In an ideal, dream world, all these enticing looking twirls and ice cream will have no calories. Love the photo... potato twirls on skewers, how interesting!

  13. Aunt Molly and I would have become fast friends, especially where the ice cream is concerned.
    LOVE these twirls, and I'll bet they are sinfully yummy!

  14. I like the way Aunt Molly used to think Daryl. I have a feeling my hips would expand a few cms just looking at these curly potato goodies!! You know I want one desperately now, thanks!!

  15. Daryl, how interesting. I've never seen anything like them. They look yummy!
    I agree with Aunt Molly!

  16. Aunt Molly sounds like my kinda peeps. Those potato things must be on the tour the next time I'm in town.

  17. It's true! If you walk and eat at the same time there are absolutely NO calories.

  18. And free samples have no calories, and the calories leak out of broken cookies. I'm with Aunt Molly!

  19. I would rather photograph the street food than eat any of it...
    except for the arepas that I watch being made and grilled before
    I eat them.

  20. I'm not sure I could turn these down. Well, only if I'd personally witnessed the germs. Look good enough to eat :)
