1// Happy International Doughnut Day! I’m looking forward to picking up my free doughnut at the grocery store today…instead of glancing longingly at them as I pass the bakery cases (that’s basically a weekly occurrence since I shop in the late afternoon). My favorite doughnut of all time is a glazed hot one right off the conveyor belt at Krispy Kreme, but I’ll take a chocolate glazed creme filled doughnut from the bakery. 🙂
2// I crossed the first item off my Summer Bucket List this week! I found some beautiful strawberries at Aldi and turned them into 12 jars of freezer jam. Not only is this homemade jam SO much better than store bought, it cost me less than $.71/jar to make it!
3// It was a good week in the kitchen! On Saturday I successfully made burgers for the first time in years. Last night I tried a new recipe for my “Recipes We Tried And Loved” series, and it was a success! I’ll share that recipe at the end of the month. 🙂
4// Paul is back on Instagram! He randomly gets on social media about twice a year, and I guess he felt it was time to give Instagram a shot. He’s whitneys_man if you want to follow him. Maybe he’ll actually post a picture this weekend!
5// Another YouTube channel I enjoy is The Domestic Geek. She shares great recipes and do-ahead menu plans, many of which can be made vegan or vegetarian. Her recent video featuring 5 Iced Coffee Hacks is perfect for this time of year!
Here’s my question for you – since today is International Doughnut Day, what is your favorite kind of doughnut? Are you a Krispy Kreme, Dunkin Donuts or local doughnut shop fan?
That’s it for me! Have a lovely weekend!
