National Doughnut Day!

June 3, 2011

This morning as I was eating my Wheaties (breakfast of champions) I was checking facebook and my cousin mentioned that it was National Doughnut Day.  And I hatched a plan.  A very involved complex plan really, consisting of several parts.

a dozen doughnuts

1: Get dressed, 2: Walk to the grocery store 3: Buy doughnuts 4: Eat them.  End of plan.  See, that was pretty complex.  I should write up a full tutorial with diagrams and detailed instructions, right?

Creamie's doughnut

Powdered doughnuts are my favorites, but I like grocery store doughnuts.  And though it would probably be a more aesthetically pleasing post to have made my own doughnuts, that didn’t really work out into my plan today.  Meh, maybe next year.  But really, probably not.  I like grocery store doughnuts.  And I like being able to get 12 different kinds for $5.99.  And Creamie likes picking out the ones with orange sprinkles (or blue sprinkles, or any kind of sprinkles really). So we do grocery store doughnuts.

As I was loading up my box with a dozen different kinds she kept saying “Ok, that’s enough.  That’s all mama, no more.”  Silly Girl, you can never have enough doughnuts.  And when we got home she needed no encouragement getting that giant thing into her face.  I love how she squeezed her eyes shut!

doughnuts and fingernails

A few of you commented on her blue fingernail polish yesterday.  It is her favorite of all the colors in the drawer, and she informed me that we needed to fix it because it has melted (she means chipped) off her finger.  Watch it, that blue nail polish can melt on you at any moment!

Since my grocery store doesn’t make fresh powdered doughnuts, I chose my second favorite, old fashioned cake doughnuts.  Scott’s favorite are maple bars, which I think are a complete waste of doughnut dough, but to each his own.  With a tall glass of milk a doughnut (or two) was the perfect treat today.  Have a good weekend!

PS- Which is the correct way to spell doughnut/Donut?  I can’t type donut without thinking I need to add a few silent letters to the middle. You know, to make things more complicated.

    I received this post to my phone from my e-mails last night in work and instantly went “OH NOOOOO” (out loud, and really loud that everyone looked at me) because I didn’t even know about doughnuts day! hehe. I am so glad you informed me. Creamie is possibly the cutest thing in the world, e.

    Have a lovely weekend,

    p.s. i have been cherishing the box that my beautiful hot chocolate and gifts came in. its coming with my to my new house. too special to me to throw away!

    Mmmm… Old fashioned doughnuts are my favorite! It’s probably a good thing I didn’t know it was doughnut day… I would eat a dozen by myself.

    OK — laugh it you’d like, but old-fashioned and maple bars are my two favorites! 😀
    (Now I want to call Jay and tell him to pick up doughnuts on his errands, but I was up last night with icky tummy trouble, so I think I’ll resist… things aren’t quite settled back yet… nope, I don’t know what it is, but I was thinking of you and how hard you had it during those last days of Creamie being in your tummy!)

    I was going to mention that I loved the nail polish even more in this photo. *snicker*

    Old fashioned are my favorite – much to the disgust of my family.

    And I agree with Creamie – sprinkles (aka Sparkles) make everything better!

    ha ha i totally feel the same way about the spelling of doughnut, i just don’t think donut does it justice. but whatever? i am glad you enjoyed your old fashioned cake doughnut. 🙂

    I heart doughnuts, but I always get a tummy ache after I eat them!

    these photos are very mouthwatering, and Creamie’s expression is a classic. For me, its Krispy Kreme (is it a K or a C??) and I am oh so grateful that there isn’t an outlet around me for miles! And it has to be doughnut……
