Ok, so this mornings' blog is about these yummy little donuts that I love so much! They come out only during the lenten season and I look forward to them every year! They are soo good!
Those of you who know me on a personal level, know that I love to cook and bake and I love to make treats that are celebrations of the seasons. This particular little donut looks like a little rectangle, deep fried and covered in powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar.
Traditionally, they were made on Fat Tuesday, the day before lent starts as a way to empty the cupboards of lard, sugar and butter. Thank god for tradition I say!
As for me, the tradition started when I was in my twenties and I dated a guy whose Mom would make them herself from scratch. That was my first experience with them and I have been hooked ever since!
I know, for a girl who works out at the gym five times a week and is a healthy eater, blogging about a fatty donut. Well, all I have to say is that I also really enjoy my life and I splurge on occassion, especially during holiday seasons.
After all, life is meant to be savored and enjoyed and what better way to do it than through food!
I highly recommend you seek out a bakery in your area and try these little treats - they are yummy!
