I have a confessed
slight obsession with donuts. So much so, that sweet friend M called me Friday morning, just in case I didn’t already know (which of course I DID already know) that it was National Donut Day and dear D posted a second reminder on my Facebook wall. Those that know me know me well, I suppose.
So, to honor this momentus occasion and exuberant to have an irrefutable excuse to indulge, I headed straight to the newest donut purveyor in town – Sublime Doughnuts. The brain child of twenty-eight year old Kamal Grant, this little hole in the wall joint peddles unbelievable hot stuffed confections such as the Reeses Peanut Butter Cup (pictured), Strawberry N Creme, Smores, Red Velvet, Chocolate Banana Fritter, Oreo and Nutella. Oh my.
Even with all these drool worthy concoctions on the menu, they are most known for the A-Town Cream. A spin on the Boston cream, filled with silky custard and topped with Belgian dark chocolate. **gasp**
And since I’d intended all week to surprise new neighbor A with a little thank you for having us to the lake on Memorial Day, the A shaped A-Town Cream sparked something in the back of my twice-fried brain and I knew I had to pick up a pair. You know, A for Amanda and A for new neighbor A. A quick grosgrain bow and a little note thanking her for being such a “sweet” friend made for not only a gift worth getting, but a donut worth eating.
