Doughnut Day!

I have written about no-fry healthier alternatives to doughnuts, but once a year the ladies of my family get together and make doughnuts. For one day there is no thought of calorie and fat content! This year we made over 300 doughnuts and they were so good! Thankfully they were split up between four families and there are a bunch of hard working farmers and carpenters who can handle the grease!

  2. Gina thank you for sharing this with us. It's wonderful to get a glimpse of Mennonite life and the ladies at work. Now that's inspiring :)

  3. Oh, there's nothing like homemade doughnuts! It's been a LONG time since I had one.

    Have you ever checked out Krumpe's doughnut shop in Hagerstown? They have doughnuts that taste like homemade. So yummy!!

    We love Krumpe's! We don't go often but sometimes when we are out shopping Ed will surprise us by swinging past Krumpe's! I'm always amazed at how many people find their way back that alley for hot doughnuts! Last time we were there was on a freezing cold night but the wait was totally worth it!
