Sometimes You Just Have to Write About Doughnuts




Today I wrote a piece about our beloved Lanark County icon Carman Lalonde and then finished a short speech for the Dunlop/ Walsh dedication Saturday at 10am. Both subjects have been deep in my heart for the past couple of days. One was a beloved friend, and the other –a 52-year-old promise is about to be realized Saturday in Carleton Place. Add that to seeing my niece today for the first time in 20 years today– and well you get the drift.


Right now I am looking at the screen mentally exhausted and I figure another subject might stop the emotions I am feeling now.  So, let’s talk about doughnuts.

As you know I covered the ever important Maple Bacon Doughnut from Mitchell’s Independent last week, and this week I tried the Peanut Butter Chocolate one.

Moist doughnut covered in rich dark chocolate topped with a sweet peanut butter glaze swirls. These practically taste like Reese’s. I am sure these peanut butter/ chocolate doughnuts are sure to start your day off right when you have them for breakfast. But don’t quote me on that.

Next week the Salted Chocolate Caramel whatever one🙂 Or you can try it for me and send me your opinion:)

If you see Jeff Mitchell ask to see his finger- Now that’s a story! A painful one.
