Summer is here! And so was National Doughnut Day! All day on Friday, my Instagram feed was bombarded with the most delicious looking doughnuts. I kept seeing posts with details for where you could score some free ones, but alas I remained at my desk.
Then, after a wallet-friendly dinner of leftovers, I decided to venture to the west side to visit the Dominique Ansel Kitchen. I had been trying to make it here for several weekends, entirely to try the burrata soft serve that had also been teasing me over Instagram, but I unfortunately confused the Bakery with the Kitchen and found an unreasonably long line for pastries I wasn’t even looking for. So, finally I learned that the ice cream window is located next to the Kitchen, and we headed off for a Friday night treat.
Like I said, I was just there for the ice cream, but then Rich pointed out a display of adorable matcha beignets…..and I thought to myself, “OH MY GOSH, I’M ACTUALLY GOING TO SUCCESSFULLY PARTICIPATE IN NATIONAL DOUGHNUT DAY!!!!” After a long day of debating stopping to pick up doughnuts on my way home from work, this made my self-restraint totally worth it.
