First a weather update. Floodwaters seem to be receding and there is no rain in the forecast for a few days. This link will take you to some pictures of the flooding around Washington State. Look to the right of the page and click on the photo galleries labeled Washington flooding. We are located in SW Washington. Towns near us are Kalama, Longview, Kelso, Vancouver, Woodland is where we are. There are some pictures of Snoqualmie Falls, that is where I grew up. My friend Janelle over at Now, Play Happy was unfortunate and her home partially flooded. She is planning on posting pictures. I-5 is still closed to Seattle as are any alternate routes, which means flying is the only option. Maybe we'll be returning to some form of normal.
Now on to the donuts. Nan loves donuts. Growing up we used to make donuts with refrigerator biscuits fried in oil. I'm not a fan of frying...well, okay, I actually love fried food, I just don't "fry" food myself. But the other day I bought a few containers of biscuits for the girls to make homemade donuts. This morning we looked up Paula Deens way of doing it (mainly for the frosting recipe) and we made donuts. My grandma and mom called them something else, but I don't know how to spell it.With Joy UNquenchable,
Setting the dough on a board.
We simply poked holes in the middle because I didn't have anything small enough to cut them out with. Simply fry them till golden brown on both sides in hot oil.
Fried and ready to frost or dip in sugar (which is my favorite)
Nan dipped hers in chocolate and sprinkles. Yummy! We combined powdered sugar, cocoa, milk and vanilla.
