Weekly Photo Challenge: Today

Two friends from work (JS) and (MK) alerted me it is National Donut Day.  Or is it Doughnut?

It is the 75th one so where have I been all these years?

I usually get that kind of info from Foodimentary blog and he is saying it is National Doughnut WEEKEND!

The Weekly Challenge came in this afternoon that you must take the photo TODAY so I shot a few photos of the  Highland Park fountain in the rain on the way home from school and the lawn ball in the garden with water drops for today’s post  of TODAY

and then my friend Steve came home with a chocolate donut he had gotten for FREE at the Giant Eagle.  Can you believe it ?

And he offered it to me.

So of course I took that donut and unwrapped the wrinkled bakery tissue from the sticky frosting (humidity is high high high today) and put it out on the front porch ledge and started to shoot away.  I did take a bite out of it for photographic purposes. Honestly, they don’t make donuts like they used to back when I was a kid………… The peeling paint on the stone ledge adds a lot to the photo in my  opinion.

(If I were to eat a doughnut it would be without chocolate  frosting)

Free from Giant Eagle today on National Donut Day.

  5. Great photo, Ruth! Love the color and composition! I did not have a donut, sadly, but I did have yogurt from yogurtland. I’m becoming quite the addict!

  13. Mmm…. a delicious, fun and sweet day. Every Sunday, my son would ask for chocolate doughnut and ham and cheese kolache. It has become a much awaited weekend event. Beautiful post.

    Something so satisfying about eating a doughnut…until the realization hits of what you just ate…then the pride if you only ate one. Until the next time

    I haven’t eaten a doughnut in years. Glazed doughnuts and plain cake doughnuts were my favorites. When “doughnuts” became “donuts” they weren’t made the same way and lost their charm for me.

  32. What a great reason to eat a donut! I don’t suppose there is a National Chocolate Day.

  34. A wonderful coming together of circumstances. What is your favorite kind of donut?

    June 3, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    • I prefer a fresh glazed one, no chocolate. I regret eating one, if I do. They just sit there.

  35. I want one.
