Missouri State Dinner

Finally resuming our state dinners and state studies! This was our Missouri state dinner:



Corn on the cob
Green salad
Ice cream cones
Dr. Pepper

In 1904, St. Louis, Missouri, hosted the World's Fair.  Introduced at that fair were ice cream cones and Dr. Pepper.  Toasted ravioli is a dish unique to Missouri and was also introduced at the fair.  It is ravioli that is breaded and deep fried.  You can eat it plain or serve it with marinara sauce for dipping.  Corn is an important crop for Missouri.  The only state that produces corn cob pipes is Missouri.

Interesting. But I bet many corn cob pipes are homemade in other states!

...especially in tobacco-growing states!
