  5. Oooohh yummy doughnuts (funny how us Brits spell things differently!!) and how Francois is enjoying them, I'm sure he will lick the sugar off his paws! I actually had an old fashioned cake as a treat today when I went to see my parents....bread pudding, now I had not had a piece of that for years...:0)

  20. Oh my goodness! I have not had a doughnut for...for...for a very long time! I can't remember. My favorites are the sugar doughnut and cake doughnut. I love eating them with coffee. I used to make my own doughnut when I was a teenager, OMG I friend mine! Yum. Now all I can think of is the clooged arteries. I am such a killjoy! I love Spam and corned beef! Aaaahhhh! I can't wait to go to my docotr and have my cholesterol level checked. If it is normal, I will eat Spam and corned beef and doughnut then walk for four miles!

  25. Donut.....mmmmm.........glaaaaaazed.......

    Oh wow, I have such a craving for donuts now.

    Adorable! See? That's why you should ALWAYS keep fresh donuts on hand, just in case small children drop by. Or big children. Or your inner child. And I LOVE that you put the donuts in a pink bakery box! YAYYYYY! Absolutely old fashioned. Tied up with red and white string, no doubt.

    nom nom nom nom nom

    Happy Sunday!
