Behold, the doughnut.


This is not a nutritional food item. It is a deep-fried ring of dough and sugar. 299 calories. 14 grams of fat. 23 milligrams of cholesterol. 290 milligrams of sodium. 38 grams total carbohydrates (and I'm thinkin' they're not the "good carbs"). This, my friends, will kill you.

But I FREAKIN' LOVE DOUGHNUTS!!!!! Did I make myself clear? I ADORE them. Crave them, even. I love glazed ones, sugared ones, coconut covered ones, jelly-filled ones. Sometimes I dream of doughnuts. In fact, I'm thinking of having doughnuts for dinner tonight.

Is that wrong?

Okay, so I'll take double doses of Lipitor. All I'm thinking is "only 299 calories"!!

No. It's not wrong. Or if it is, I don't want to be right!

There is a little doughnut shop on our way to Dramam Queen's school and I probably stop there at least once a week. Only because Missy Hoohaw needs a pink frosted with sprinkles doughnut.It has nothing to do with their lovely glazed twists. Nothing at all.

B/S, you just plain ol' crack me up! I love watching people wreck trying to get to the Krispy Kreme cause the "HOT" sign just.came.on!

Doughnuts are my biggest downfall. I LOVE THEM!

I love them too, and would eat them every day if I could. As it is, I save them for "special occasions"! I splurge at the holidays, and get some around Christmas, when I'm busy with everything else.

My last boss had a name for them that I love and use to this day - "fat pills". So sad, but so true :)

No, it's not wrong! We had them the other night, only we call them scones. I thaw out some Rhodes bread dough, roll it out, fry it up and put cinnamon sugar or peanut butter on them... that's almost like having doughnuts, no?

YOU are my kind of girl. Donuts are always appropriate - appetizer, cleanse-the-palate-er, dessert, main dish, snack, joy-giver.... yup. I'm salivating...
