Out of the Blue

Happy Donut Day, an unofficial event here in the U.S. that's the first Friday in June. This commemoration has its roots in the Great Depression harking back to the Salvation Army during World War I. As a result, free donuts (I prefer the "doughnuts" spelling myself) can be found in some places: At Dunkin' Donuts you have to buy a beverage while apparently Krispy Kreme is giving them away with no strings attached. I also see the offer at a chain I don't know called LaMar's, who also celebrate the occasion with Donut Trivia. For those in other countries, don't take this lying down, we need some protests to turn this into World Donut Day!

Oh, and if fried dough strikes you as too unhealthy for your lifestyle, then today is also apparently National Running Day.

Having recently finally discovered the magic of Krispy Kreme's "Hot Donuts Now" sign, I've become re-addicted to those doughy little rings.

Call me crazy, but while warm KK were OK on occasion, I like "regular" donuts better on those rare instances when I eat one.

Cinnamon rolls/twists, apple fritters, chocolate or maple old fashioned - the list goes on. Mmmmm.
