Have you ever risen out of your bed to the delicious smell of coffee only to spill that coffee down your shirt?? I am super coordinated. And burnt (burned?) I don’t smell bad, though. In fact I smell positively lickable. I am going to have to beat people off with a stick. “Yes, I’m sorry, I know I smell like a trenta warm coffee of magic, but I’m taken”.
Screw milkshakes, my dunkin brings all the boys to the yard. I really hope the man comes up to me later, smells my neck and says “It’s time to make the donuts”, because that would be the best pickup line ever.
By the way, from now on, the new euphemistic phrase for having sex is “making donuts.” I have declared it so.
Speaking of making donuts, today’s SUNDAY SWEET is for all of my chosen readers. Last night was the first night of Hanukkah, and as anyone who’s ever been to a Hanukkah celebration knows, you FRY ALL OF THE THINGS. Including jelly donuts called sufganiyot. They’re magic.
You’ll have to forgive my staging of these donuts. The Peanut and the Captain were literally ON TOP of me trying to get at them. Because, why on earth would I take pictures of jelly donuts? Aren’t you a healthy living blogger? Shouldn’t you be hiding in a closet eating your donuts and hoping no one puts it on instagram and tags you?
I tried to explain I have no shame on Sundays. Much like the future mother of my children who got her jelly donuts from DUNKIN. Yeah, I outted her.
Sufganiyot. Make them.
