Joy in the Donut

20130803-074624.jpgDon’t hate me.

20130803-074652.jpgSome people are tempted by cigarettes and some by alcohol. Me? This red sign that is lighted up at only special times of the day. It screams “Come on in! Hot, melt in your mouth goodness is waiting for you~Mary!”

20130803-074939.jpgDo you remember in the Scooby Doo cartoons when Shaggy and Scooby would come under some bad guy’s spell? Their eyes would start glossing over and they would be sucked into the vortex? This glowing sign has the same effect on me.

20130803-075208.jpgNow, you would think that after getting my pictures back from our vacation this summer and seeing THIS and….

20130803-075700.jpgTHIS that I would avoid Church St., where Krispy Kreme is located in our town, at all costs. If I was truly as disgusted with the state of my body as I think I am, I would drive miles away from this place.

20130803-080100.jpgBut, there is this kid. He is on the high school cross country team and they are in the midst of summer training.

20130803-080425.jpgWednesdays are Krispy Kreme Donuts Day. Lucky me! It’s all a part of the championship training program at the school. ….Well, actually, it’s a part of the teenage boys idea of a reward for getting through another workout.

20130803-080901.jpgYou know what? When you are a 15 year old guy, who just finished a 5 mile run and your metabolism is sky high, you can eat this. If you are a 47 year old mom with a metabolism in the negative numbers, you really ought to stay in the car.

20130803-081139.jpgIt is kind of cool to watch the sweet treats being made. Here they are coming out of dough into circles process. (That’s straight from the company lingo…dough into circles process!)

20130803-081434.jpgOut of the fryer crispy and golden brown. Mmmm….Do you notice how all of the oil is dripped out of the donut? Not a drop is left in the donut! Healthy, right?…….Uh, yeah, right.

20130803-081636.jpgNow, through a shower of sugary goodness.

20130803-081917.jpgThomas and I didn’t want to leave Superman and Adam out on this special treat, so we got a dozen. Geez.

20130803-082355.jpgI’m going to leave you with my favorite.
What is your favorite kind of donut? Are you a Dunkin Donut fan? We don’t have one in town so I have “settle” for Krispy Kreme.

P.S. Too funny…right now on the news show I am watching as I write this, they are discussing bad foods~ sugar, salt, flour…hmmm are donuts made of these things? Oh well. I think I’m going for a run right now! Have a great day!!!
