Forget the second definition. Today, our nation is honoring the golden glazed glory that are doughnuts. Many of you know about my love, and by love I mean near unhealthy obsession (hello, Just a Taste Doughnuthon), with deep fried dough. But you show me a doughnut that’s dipped, filled, dusted or sprinkled, and I’ll show you a country beaming with fried fulfillment.
So here’s to you Mr. Dunkin and Mrs. Kreme, for bringing satisfied smiles to our nation. Now go make your own, or stop by your local deep-fried supplier for a free taste.
