Happy National Donut Day

Today, Friday June 7, is apparently National Donut Day in the US. I have no idea who dreams these things up, but you can google it.

I hope you are celebrating by steadfastly refraining from eating donuts...in favour of something healthy with protein, good fats and anti-oxidants.

I'm having a dinner salad with spinach, avocado, corn, black beans, red pepper, grilled zucchini, grilled chicken breast, a little kimchi olive oil dressing and chopped hazelnuts...spread all around the place with a big empty hole in the middle.

Bon appetit!

I do dimly recall liking donuts when I was young...there was a 24 hour donut shop when I was in university that I can recall frequenting.

But I'm sure I haven't eaten--or even had any passing interest in--any donut in almost 50 years. Even with all that smooth frosting and little sprinkles, I can't really relate to them as food at all. If I never eat or smell one again it will be fine with me.

You forgot to mention the hefty dollop of self-righteousness, which makes it taste ever so much better...

Enjoy your dinner! (Save for the kimchi and hazelnuts, I'd happily eat it, too.)

Oh, I have my weaknesses--mostly baked goods with a lot of butter--but the very idea of a donut makes me want to take refuge in crunchy tangy vegetables...maybe I should put a picture of a donut on the fridge!

Thanks for the heads up. Free donuts! I still have time to make it to Krispy Kreme.

You raised an interesting question and I found an interesting answer.

National Doughnut Day, or National Donut Day celebrated in the United States, is on the first Friday of June of each year, succeeding the Doughnut event created by The Salvation Army in Chicago in 1938 to honor those of their members who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.

Re: Happy National Donut Day

national donut day? every day is donut day in Minnesota
Well, it used to be but if I go that route I visibly gain weight. I still have one occasionally, though. It's one thing that they just can't make right in France, and you can't get a proper croissant in the US, I think it's because of the types of flour.

My grandpa was a baker and he fried the donuts in a small town local bakery. my mom still would go there when we would visit and they were the best i'd ever had.

Re: Happy National Donut Day

Yes! I'm sure that donuts will have extra generous coatings on this day!

It is amazing that nowadays you can buy vegan donuts that are equally delicious. Chocolate donuts, creamy donuts, etc. Thumbs up for vegan bakers and chefs.
