Raised Glazed anyone?
Since the nearest crispy creme is a few thousand miles away (I even love Roth's donuts, but don't tell my dad I said that) and the swiss are known for their yummy croissants but couldn't make a good donut to save their neutrality, we decided to make donuts. We had the help of a veteran donut maker and they turned out really yummy. We'll make a few slight changes to the recipe next time, but they were better than any I have tasted in a long time. Judy and Suzanne were here for a few days. I also decided to repaint in the living room and the kitchen to accomodate a recently acquired treasure and to display an older one. I was proud and excited to say that it cost me about a hundred bucks in paint and rollers and it made a great change in our room=cheap thrill, right?! That was until I pushed down on the paint bucket lid to close it while it was sitting on our stovetop and cracked the whole thing. Guess I don't know my own strength. Hey I wasn't Paul Bunyan in the 3rd grade school play for nuthin. Duh, so the 100 buck project just got another zero added to it and that stinks. But I'm still happy about the changes. And I can use two burners out of four on my stove.
