Day 228

I know, I know, 2 days in a row - don't get used to it just yet. We'll see how the rest of the week goes.

My wonderful husband and I spent a long weekend in New York this month. We had such a great time. I'm sure I'll have more pics to share, but for now here's one that should make you smile.

A little about this donut first. For starters it is by far THE. BEST. DOUGHNUT. YOU. WILL. EVER. HAVE.
I'm not joking. I'm not even a big donut fan, but this thing was amazing. It's the Peanut Butter and Jelly Donut from Donut Plant in NYC. It's downtown so a bit of a jaunt if you haven't got a reason to head down there. But I promise you this, if you make the trip you will not regret it. Amazing I tell you. I'm sorry I can't stop now that I've started. A bit of description: It's a square donut - yup square - why waste those delicious little corners when you can fill them with ooey gooey pb&j goodness? So there's this square donut - they then pipe in their own jam that they make there (it was blackberry when we were there) - into the donut. THEN - now pay attention because this is important - they coat it with this orgasmic (yup, that's what I said) peanut butter glaze. It's the perfect combination. You would think it would be too rich, but believe me when I say I could have eaten 10 of these in one sitting. Amazing-Fantastic-Glorious square shaped piece of heaven. YUMMMMM!
Thank you to the very talented Mr. Haigh for capturing this moment.

Mmmmm...doughnuts. (insert Homer Simpson sound bite here)

I worked at this bakery and we made one that was a doughnut with maple frosting and a thick slice of bacon across the top. It was so freaking delicious. Sweet & Salty...my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

did your husband agree that these donuts were better than the tasty pastries in his hometown???
