Today is National Donut Day, which was first started by The Salvation Army in 1917, to bolster the troop's morale.
In honor of the lowly doughnut/donut, I went for a nice long walk to a bakery and bought myself a custard-filled donut.
Just perfect with a cup of coffee.
If you have read any of Grace Livingston Hill's work, you know that a cup of coffee and a "dough-nut" is a very nutritious breakfast indeed.
And since I don't believe that, I am hoping that the long walk zeroed out the calories consumed.
Krispy Kreme is giving out free donuts, and Dunkin Donuts will give you a donut with the purchase of a drink. I figured the cost of gas would be more than the savings of a free donut, so I opted to buy my donut today.
