Please forgive me

You’re going to hate me for this. You’ll love me first, then you’ll hate me.

Do you know what that is? How about this?

If you guessed that it was a glazed donut that’s been pan fried in butter then covered in ice cream, you’re right. You also might want to go eat a salad – your arteries just clogged a little.

Dave’s dad used to make these for us years ago. I guess they were a specialty of his. One recent Sunday afternoon found us with too many donuts that were beginning to go stale. So we did the only thing we could do – we fried ’em up in a little butter, doused them in ice cream, and prayed not to die of happiness.

The outside of the donut was crispy and sticky and chewy and caramelly. The inside was moist and tender and sweet. The ice cream was smooth and melty.

Our hearts were slow and cloggy.

But it was worth it.

If you find yourself at Krispy Kreme later today, don’t blame me. But also don’t forget to stop and get some ice cream and butter to dress up that donut.
