Doughnut Of The Week: Patriot's Day 2011
Three day weekends are just made for indulgences and we made ours a deliciously fattening doughnut this Monday morning before we head off to the Boston Marathon, after which I am sure we'll be exhausted ... from watching. I recently started in on Bill Phillips Body For Life workout/diet routine, which is killer but very quickly rewarding. One of the features I love about BFL is that on one day a week you do not exercise at all and can eat whatever you want. We decided to test the theory by taking a leisurely early morning stroll just down the street to Donuts With A Difference.
Known as the "DD" by locals (so we are told) it is not like that other DD. You know, the corporate, industrialized, fast food place on every corner. It's a mom-and-pop operation that's been there for years and serves up fresh, house-made goods every day.
We went with the classic Boston Cream, rich with custardy cream and not too much chocolate frosting. We also couldn't resist the glazed jelly, which we haven't enjoyed since Krispy Kreme departed town abruptly after an incredibly popular opening. Both were great and, yes, even though it's eat-anything-you-want-day, I still split both with a friend. My abs never felt better!
