Oh sweet lovely Donut… Donut my love…
Especially you, cake donut. Moist and buttermilky with with fakey-fake vanilla-flavonoid frosting and super-sweet sugary coconut, lines of more sugary frosting, nuts and sprinkles.
Oh! Oh! Oh! The donut!
We don’t have any of these in Granbury. We have several great donut shops though, all locally owned which is a good thing.
According to the Washington Post, the Salvation Army started National Donut Day in 1938 to honor women who served donuts to soldier during World War II.
I have never been to war. I have never been away from home for months or years at a time. I have never been in danger of my life. But if any of these things had been true, I can imagine that the memory of the sweet delicious circle of sugary goodness known as the donut served by loving hands would be something I would remember forever.
I must go now. The donut shops close in four minutes.
