SOLC #6/31 -I'm slicing with the Two Writing Teachers community for Day Six of Thirty-One of the Slice of Life Challenge in March. Thank you Stacey, Tara, Anna, Betsy, Dana, Kathleen, Beth, and Deb.
This is a Sunday slice about a favorite food that I don't eat anymore, but sometimes I wish I did. I have not eaten a lot of donuts in my life, but there have been times that I liked them a lot. I was a teacher who brought donuts for her class once in a while, gathering cheers! For some reason, I've stopped the habit, and also acquired a new one, just not as often.
Do you like donuts, and from where? As for well-known places, we do have Krispy Kreme in Denver, though some have closed; Dunkin Donuts has recently appeared from the east, and the very popular VooDoo Donuts moved in a few years ago, still gathers lines out the door. It is quite an incredible place, always with a wait, but still, they are creative: froot loops or bacon on top-sure. Huge double-sized ones-sure. I've been once, to take my brother and family. Yes, we took a picture, and yes, put it on Facebook. People were jealous, especially because where he lives there is no VooDoo. All the groceries have their own bakery, and there are a few local favorites. Here's an article from a local newspaper, Westword, praising the ten top places, including LaMar's, which some friends adore. Do you have a favorite place in your town or city?
My quick slice of pure cake or fried delights we call donuts, or are they doughnuts, with or without icing, sprinkles, jelly or creme filled is this. I haven't had one in a long time. I am now in love with scones, so have one from Starbucks sometime on the weekend, my treat of the week. I also find them at a favorite local bakery. However, this time, for all of you who still love the other, I stopped at a Starbucks in a Safeway today for my chai and scone, and took a picture of their donut case. They looked good, but I passed right on after snapping the picture.
