Happy National Doughnut Day!
Who’s celebrating with me?
Just in case you want to party in the kitchen this weekend and celebrate Doughnut Day at the same time, I highly recommend making my mom’s homemade doughnut munchkins.
They were always a huge hit at sleepovers growing up. They’re unreal and super simple!
I made sure to head over to Dunkin’ Donuts to get my free doughnut for the day (with a drink purchase). I initially picked my all-time favorite doughnut, the apple fritter, but was told that particular doughnut was “too fancy” and wasn’t included in the free doughnut promotion.
I scanned the peasant doughnuts for my plan b selection. I immediately skipped over any and all cake doughnuts. (Only wackadoodles prefer cake doughnuts over soft, pillowy doughnuts. I’m looking at you, Meghann.)
In the end I picked a chocolate kreme-filled doughnut.
It was a soft, traditional doughnut with a little extra flare from the powered sugar and filling. Nice and doughy! The kreme tasted like cake frosting. Doughnut heaven!
After getting some work done this morning and before heading off to Dunkin’ Donuts for my little treat (I’m blogging from there right now! Yay for free wifi!), I met up with a friend for lunch at Moe’s.
I tried to cram as many veggies into my midday meals as possible and opted for a salad, topped with lots of fixings.
I’m hoping to cram in a few more hours of work at Dunkin’ Donuts before heading home and doing something with the ridiculously ripe bananas we have chillin’ in our pantry. I’m thinkin’ banana bread!
Question of the Afternoon
Totally stealing this question from Meghann…
- What is your favorite kind of doughnut? (If you say a cake doughnut, I guess we can still be friends.)
My all-time favorite doughnut is the apple fritter, but I also love those glazed twisty doughnuts. Ryan’s favorite is a glazed doughnut with pink frosting and sprinkles. No lie!
