Mmmmm, doughnuts. . .
Well, only one more day until Christmas. We have decided to stay home this year which is always nice because it is very relaxing. No added stress or pressure of traveling and adjusting. And being home allows us to do the things that we most enjoy. I think we may have begun a new Christmas tradition this morning. Robert put the idea of doughnuts in my head yesterday, and so when the girls woke up this morning, I told them I was going to make doughnuts. But then the idea got even better when I decided to decorate them and make them Christmas doughnuts! Now don't go into shock. While I do know how to make doughnuts from scratch, it is quite a bit of work and usually requires a day for me to prepare. So this morning, it was biscuit doughnuts. For those of you who haven't heard of this, let me be the first to tell you that it is super easy and really yummy too! You just take a tube of refrigerated biscuit dough, cut holes in the middle of each one, and fry them up in oil at 350 degrees. You can even fry up the holes! I think decorating them even more fun and tantalizing. As usual, I made too much, so we gave some away. After all, who doesn't love doughnuts?
