Everything is better with donuts

I seem to have hit a wall in my energy level.? I’m closing in on the end of Sweet Hope and I can’t seem to pull myself up to finish.? I took yesterday off to spend time with the boys and we did our annual killing of an innocent Christmas tree.? I dreamed of candy last night and this morning I somehow don’t want to face more chocolate.

It could be that I have much less help than last week or that the trusty husband is out of town the whole week.? It could also be that it’s friggen cold here, but not cold enough to snow.? I hate the super cold rain.

I’m trying to find something to pull myself up with and think that donuts might just do the trick.? I am usually not a huge donut fan, but these looked yummy.

Oh, and if you haven’t already discover this little blog you really should check it out.? Thing is… the girl who writes it is all of 17 years old.? I’ve tried a few of her recipes and hot damn she’s good.

So while the trusty husband is away the boy and I will be making donuts tomorrown morning.? Suck it!

    I didn’t order chocolates and thought you would hate me for it, but now that you are sick of making them, I can be your favorite person. πŸ™‚

    Oh man!

  4. So…you MADE donuts, since you couldn’t bring yourself to make chocolate. I’m sorry, but that would not have helped me! Don’t get me wrong, I’d be fatter and happier, for sure, and they do look delish…but cooking does not get me in the mood for more cooking! To each his own, though…

    P.S. We killed a big tree this year too. I used to feel guilty about it, but then my husband said something about how Christmas tree farms are GOOD for the environment, and I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I chose to believe it!

  5. It’s supposed to snow later this week.

    Oh, and watch out … i’ve caught apartments on fire trying to make donuts …

    Sorry I haven’t been of help. I tried calling you to schedule time to do something… anything, but you didn’t call me back till my work hours were posted. My vacation starts the 14th… too late huh? If anything I steal the little guy for a night and you can have some down time! Always thinking of you. πŸ˜€

    Homemade donuts are the best. I grew up on the easiest ones to make ever. In case you feel really lazy all you need is a Fry Daddy filled with oil, a package of Pillsbury original biscuits and some powdered sugar. Seriously! Just poke a hole in the biscuit drop it in the oil until cooked. Then blot them on paper towels before you sprinkle them with powdered sugar (or you could be like my husband and totally coat them in the sugar)! They are so easy and super yummy!!!
