    Default Harris Teeter disappointment

    Time to catch up on some doughneuring...

    On March 2nd I was getting ready for a night shift and had stayed up all night. I seem to recall that this was one of those really windy days - one where I thought I might be blown over, and I had to walk my bicycle at some points because the wind was so strong. So there I was - riding into DC at about 5:30am having stayed up all night. I decided, amidst rushing into Harris Teeter to use the restroom, that I deserved a doughnut!!!

    ... and what a disappointment it was. I really like apple fritters, so that's what I chose to sample from Harris Teeter in NOMA. The thing... it was worse than the massive offering that I've already submitted from Shoppers. Very, very bland. And - no glaze to speak of! It was almost like biting into a dense hamburger bun, with maybe the barest hint of cinnamon and sweet. I don't recommend it.

    Default Doughneuring Ride #2

    And now for my results from the 2nd doughneuring ride... This time I managed to join the ride from the beginning! First stop was District Doughnuts in SE DC. This time I sampled the maple butter pecan. Hey... that wasn't so bad. So far I think I liked this one best from District. It was more cakey, and I enjoyed the nuts and overall flavor. It went well with the chocolate milk.

    Next... a fresh beignet from Bayou Bakery in SE DC. Warm, and lots of marvelous powdered sugar. It was pretty reminiscent of the beignets that I had in New Orleans a number of years ago. Plus, the flying powdered sugar, adding little dashes of white to everyone around me, added free entertainment!

    Finally, we reached my ultimate goal of the day - Duck Donuts in Arlington. I had been meaning to visit one of these ever since I had heard of them. Freshly made, freshly glazed, awesome flavors! Gah... I loved them. I chose two - one with Irish crème glaze and caramel drizzle. The second had vanilla glaze with raspberry drizzle. Warm and sweet and melty and delicious. I'm not sure which one I loved better. They were the highlight of the day!

    Default St Patrick's Day

    My St Patrick's Day submissions! I had to work 12 hours on Friday, but I had enough time to visit my local Dunkin Donuts again for an early morning jolt of green. The first with chocolate frosting and shamrock sprinkles, the second with green frosting - possibly vanilla flavored.

    Typical DD - not bad, but not too different. Tasty. If anything, I enjoyed the crunch of the shamrock sprinkles as I ate them.

    Default My Doughneuring Finale

    I went to Vigilante this morning, and then stopped at a new place - my local 7-Eleven gas station (!) on the way home!

    As my not-quite-so-grand finale, I chose three things from 7-eleven. The glazed sour cream - also one of my favorite types of doughnuts - was good - normal - what I expected. Not as good as Raulin's, but that's understandable. The creative donut - lemon pie - was a pretty nice attempt at a lemon meringue version of a doughnut. Lemon-filled, with lemon frosting and some graham cracker crumbles. Not bad - I would eat that again. It didn't have the harsh after-taste that lemon filling sometime can have. The third doughnut - a mini chocolate-frosted Hostess variety! Yeah... George is the fan of these, so I was thinking of him. Some of these chocolate-frosted mini doughnuts that you can buy in bulk have a rather waxy frosting. The Hostess one that I ate this morning, did not. George won't be the only one eating the rest of these...

    Beautiful! Last year they had cherry filling, I assume this one did as well?
    Great off-season Doughneuring David, keep in practice for next Winter's Freezing Saddles!
    See you at the happy hour, e
