Happy National Donut Day! I can almost hear your collective groans, but my donut delusions prevent me from doing anything other than writing about all things donuts and sharing them with you on the first Friday in June (the day that is always National Donut Day).
I was certain I waxed poetic about donuts many times before, but I find only hints of my love for these calorie bombs sprinkled in to old posts. Frankly, I do not know how or why my love for donuts began, but they are my jam. I love the ones topped with sprinkles and I love the ones filled with cream. Glazed or sugared or iced are all fine too. Shape them like a football, and I am smitten.
I love that every Thursday my Dad made a quick detour at the donut shop before he dropped my sister and I off at school. And every single Thursday, we all three ordered the same thing.
For me, it was a chocolate-iced filled stick (known in some parts as a long john). My sister also went for the white-iced donuts filled with red jelly, and Dad ordered a Danish and black coffee.
In today’s more modern times, then even make donut coffee.
Donuts are acceptable any time of the year, but they are especially important to properly celebrate silly holidays. For instance, one can make a donut valentine!!!! Or perhaps just buy a donut valentine online.
If you are in mood to buy some donut things, I recommend the donut pillow. Or anything else donut-related at Paper Source.
Bloggers are creative people. They are all the time sharing a mish-mash of things like apple pie milkshakes and cheeseburger salads and other wonky concoctions they somehow deem okay to throw together.
Most of the time, I am okay with this nonsense, but I draw the line at donuts. Please do not mess with perfection. Wonut = wrong.
A breakfast sandwich held together with Krisy Kreme buns, on the other hand, is disturbingly right.
If you need a recipe in this recipe-less post, you might like these cookies made with donuts. You can watch this video from the now-defunct (so sad) Daily Candy about how to make donuts, or check out their list of where to find the best donuts near you.
