Mmmm!.. Donuts

Donuts are an American institution. What is more American than little round blobs of dough dropped into hot grease and fried until they're fluffy on the inside and golden brown on the outside.

You might think that I eat donuts all the time. I don't. They're a rare treat.

I took Tabitha and the kids for donuts this morning. Abigail got a glazed raised, Aidan picked out a rainbow sprinkle, Tabitha got an apple fritter, and I got a glazed old fashioned and a crumb (yes, that's two for those of you keeping track).

Donuts are pure sugary bliss. Sure, I can feel my heart struggling as if it's pumping blood uphill. I'll make up for it by eating something healthy sometime.

You have your whole short life to make up for the doughnut consumption - eat a veggie sometime. I LOVE doughnuts.

Yum, old fashioned! I always got rainbow sprinked donuts as a kid. Now I love buttermilk bars and apple fritters. What's really weird is that there are no donut shops in Montana. We have to get donuts at Safeway. It's just not the same.

Apple fritters...the best!
