Oh my another food post and it is so much the opposite of the last one! This one is all about Doughnuts. Yummy, delicious doughnuts. It all started two weeks ago, actually I think we were at Blissdom when we saw the tweet with the Maple Bacon doughnut, then a few more people were talking about stopping at Suzy Q’s for doughnuts. And then my friend Justin, who tweeted that first Maple Bacon, and I were going to meet for coffee, so I said, “Hey let’s grab some donuts first!” “Big mistake, big, huge” ~ Pretty Woman
I saved my calories all week, leading up to Thursday. Because Suzy Q’s is only open Thursday to Sunday, so I had to gear up for it. Then, lovely person that I am, I waited until the whole family was here to share them. I didn’t even cheat before they all got home for supper. I even made them finish their lasagna first. Then we opened the box (well I had opened it earlier so I could snap these photos, but I put them all back and didn’t lick my fingers, knowing that would lead to an empty box).
Oh My! It was a fight. We had two Froot Loop, Two Coconut (good thing Dad wasn’t here) one Sugar and one Maple Bacon. And four of us, forget the eldest he was at work, his loss (kidding we saved him some). So we did what any parent, who also wanted to taste all of them, would do we cut them in halves and shared. We all loved the Froot Loop and Coconut. We were a little iffy on the Maple Bacon, but I am thinking if we had had it fresh at breakfast with coffee, it would have been a whole different story. And the sugar one, was divine. Just the right amount of sugar to coat a very simple doughnut.
I forgot what truly fresh baked doughnuts tasted like, not the ones you get at coffee shops but true honest to goodness doughnuts, ones I remember from when I was a kid. Delicious. So if you are in town, be sure to make a date to stop in at Suzy Q’s and grab some doughnuts they are divine and I am just glad they are not within walking distance because I would be in big trouble.
