Happy National Donut Day!

1 Jun

It’s National Donut Day, I think we all know how I feel about a Donut. It’s kind of an inexplicable love affair. There aren’t may things that compare to a freshly baked donut, the way it melts in your mouth is well for lack of a better description…freaking awesome! I have yet to make my own donuts but I am really good at eating them; mini donuts, long johns, filled donuts and even donut holes, I don’t discriminate against any donut I promise!

I tend to try and find the very best in every city that I travel to and if you read often you know that I love:

Voodoo Donuts in Portland.

Do-Rite Donuts in Chicago.

Cartems Donuts in Vancouver.

If these don’t say TGIF, I don’t know what does. Happy National Donut Day!

P.S.  Any recommendations for my next donut adventure?


Monday Morsels – Rodeo Edition

21 May

It’s Monday. I’m tired…just thought you should know. But the fatigue is well worth it after an action packed weekend at the Cowboy Cookoff – a part of the Cloverdale Rodeo.

On Saturday I was fortunate enough to be a part of the pie, chilli and bacon categories.

These are just a few of the entries I was able to sample…Jealous?

Later that evening the girls showed up so that we could participate in some “adult” rodeo activities. i.e. Drink plenty of beer in the Longhorn Saloon.

Unfortunately after waiting in line for over an hour and having the entrance nowhere in sight we decided that valuable drinking time was being wasted. After shutting down the beer garden and eating my second bag of mini donuts we headed over to a friends for a bonfire.

Sunday was main the portion of the BBQ competition; pork, brisket, chicken and ribs…it was glorious! Needless to say, today I am wearing stretchy pants.

I hope you also had a chance to enjoy your long weekend (maybe you still are!)

Happy Monday!
