The schtuff: Deep-fried cheesecake

Get this man a used-car lot: John Thomas and his cheesecake work the crowd.

Day 10: A new dessert in town

I never would have known about deep-fried cheesecake had John Thomas not stuck it in my face.

"C'mon! Have a sniff! Get a whiff of that, wouldja?"

I've gotta hand it to him. He's good. The 52-year-old from South Minneapolis knows how to work the crowds outside the Robbinsdale Order of the Eastern Star Dining Hall.

He's pushing the deep-fried cheesecake on a stick, a new item this year. It's not on my official media list. I'm intrigued.

It's a pastry pocket of sorts that's sprinkled with sugar and drizzled with chocolate sauce. The cheesecake is warm, giving the dessert the feel of a cheese danish. The only dessert of its kind on a stick, I think.

We discuss the merits of coffee vs. milk with the thing, when suddenly the dude goes off on a talk about the lack of low-cal items at the fair.

"There's no 1 percent or skim milk here," he says. "There's diet cola, but when I go to the A&W stand, there's no diet root beer. We need to have diet items for those who need them."

John.

Buddy.

This is the Fair.

You kinda got the wrong crowd here.

Yeah, it's the fair. If you want healthy food, you're at the wrong place.

Oops, just noticing my atrocious typing (actually when I write fiction, I normally write by hand...)

Blogged about you on today on GreenFertility.blogspot.com to add some Midwestern flair.

And naaahh, RI has coffee milk and quahogs (extremely large and fat clams). But I'm originally from Hibbing, I *know* what hotdish is!
