I didn't go outside today except to walk down the driveway and back to get the mail. The temperature was 13° and, believe me, that felt absolutely balmy compared to what it has been. Anytime you don't have to wear a face mask when outside, you know it's comfortable!
What I did do inside that was fun was to make donuts. I can't remember the last time I did so, but I've been thinking about (and salivating for) homemade donuts for a while now so today I did it.
My recipe made 24 donuts with as many donut holes. (Funny how that works out.)
I plopped the donut holes in a bag of sugar/cinnamon mix. So easy to pop one in your mouth. Then another one. Then another . . .
Chocolate Glazed being my husband's favorite, I made 12 of them that way. (Dang good chocolate glaze it was, too.)
Then 6 of them with a Lemon Glaze.
And 6 with an Almond Glaze. (Good thing I took separate pictures of these last two 'cause they look so different, huh?)
The donuts are just a smidge on the dry side. This was an old, tried and true recipe I've made in the past and I didn't change anything this time around. I know I didn't over-fry them. Hmm, wonder what would happen if I used honey next time instead of sugar in the dough? That should make them a little moister. (Uh, more moist? Moistyer?)
I decided to make them today because I thought we were going to have company but that didn't happen. Good thing Chicken Mama is stopping in on her way home from her Friday nannying job. I'll foist some on her so the two of us don't have to eat 'em all.
The train to Looneyville is picking up speed.
