Today is National Donut Day! When I was at Pepperdine University, we’d zip along PCH, speed up the incline to Santa Monica and hang out at Pier or the mall. Inside the mall was a donut palce, which I thought was kind of wierd, but we always seemed to stop by there. They had GI-NOR-MOUS peanutbutter and chocolate donuts, kind of like the one pictured here. Everyone knows that PB and chocolate is my all time favorite food combo, so any time I entered the mall, it would call to my belly and chubbie thighs.
Now, this was really a land mass of a donut. I can’t imagine the amount of calories, fat and sugar that was in that thing. It certainly didn’t help aleviate the Freshman 15. Even splitting it with a friend, we’d both feel sick afterward — but it was soooo worth it!
I still haven’t tried the cronut but I want to. I hear the original place that invented them no longer make them, so I’ll have to find a good imposter somewhere or do a homemade version.
If you didn’t have a donut for breakfast, have one for dessert tonight and enjoy! You can even get a FREE donut of your choice today at any Krispy Kreme or a bunch of other local shops. A donut once a year won’t hurt your thighs and it is great for your attitude. – Chef Ro
