Tomorrow is a very important holiday, I'm sure you've already got it marked on your calendar in bold, red letters . . . tomorrow is National Doughnut Day!
Yep, that's right, gang, there really is such a day, the first Friday of June to be exact!
Per Wikipedia -
National Doughnut Day is on the first Friday of June each year, succeeding the Doughnut Day event created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.
And here's another surprising factoid you might not know . . .
Lollie LOVES DOUGHNUTS!
So, despite today's lengthy list of things to get accomplished, my attention has being hijacked by the need to finalize my plans to celebrate my personal favorite holiday in appropriate fashion.
Unfortunately, there is no Krispy Kreme within a reasonable, while-the-boys-are-at-school, drive from my humble 'burb.
So where's a gal to go to get her doughnut fix?
Sure, there are the ubiquitous Dunkin Donuts or Honey Dew Donuts, but no mass produced circle of fried dough will suffice for this special occasion.
Luckily, Boston also offers up a plethora of independent doughnut shop options.
So I pulled out my doughnut file (Yes, I admit it, I have a file dedicated to doughnuts!) and reviewed "Indie Doughnuts with Big-Time Taste", which I printed out from Boston.com last year.
So tomorrow morning, after the boys are deposited at their respective schools, me & my culinary compatriot, Julie, are venturing to West Roxbury to visit Anna's Hand Cut Donuts.
So excited for my doughnut field trip tomorrow AM! Though I may need an emergency insulin injections before noon.
And don't worry, the doughnutting fun will have only just begun! I've got a surprise in my apron pocket for tomorrow after school!
So how will you be observing National Doughnut Day?
What's your favorite form of fried dough?
Note to my non-Boston-based readers -
If you're not in the Boston area, and are desperately seeking doughnut nirvana in your neck of the woods, check out Serious Eats "National Doughnut Honor Roll" - though compiled in 2007, many of these independent shops may still be going strong.
