One of the stops on our way back from a favorite park this past Sunday was the Krispy Kreme Doughnut Shop. The car knows where it has to go and it doesn't need to be told twice. We're ambivalent about this place. On one hand we're glad we don't have it too close to our house yet sad that it is 27 miles away, therefore only allowing us to go there two or three times a year. It's like the icing on the cake, or maybe I should say doughnut and it marks a wonderful end to an always fun outing.
We get up early in the morning and head out for that park and never eat beforehand, so that by the time we're finished looking around we have a great appetite for these yummy doughnuts. We're pretty good on not going overboard and only eat two and always say, oh boy, we could eat another half a dozen of those things.
The other fun thing is you can see them cooking behind the glass. There are those little darlings floating down on a river of hot oil and in the middle that little machine flips them over to cook the other side. The aroma is fantastic!
What is your favorite doughnut shop and what is your favorite doughnut? I know many of you will say you don't eat these things but many of us do. Maybe they taste so good because we don't eat them all the time. I love the chocolate glazed, custard filled ones and Gregg likes the glazed and jelly filled ones. Can you tell I'm hungry? And that's why I am so glad that place is 27 miles away! Two foodie posts in a row, I must be on a diet - and there's the rub! Here's me trying to be a good girl again. Summer's coming after all That's what I tell myself anyhow when I look outside and see all that snow. Pass the darned carrot stick please!
