Coffee and Donuts

One thing I've been wanting to do since I returned to America was indulge in some very American food. This is by no means the only indulgence, but a very fitting one.

An espresso and great old fashioned donut at the very unpretentious, yet very comfortable Chuck's Donuts in Redwood City, California hit the spot. An old fashioned, old fashioned glazed donut, and two double espressos came to a total of $4.90. The Khmer owned Chuck's donuts had been in business since 1974 and the place has the feel that not a lot has changed in some time.

Donuts will kill you, but so will a lot of things. Diet beverages and low fat items are not necessarily your gateway to health. Hell, some of them might even kill you faster. Moderation, and walking once in a while might be a key to your success. Get off the couch, leave your car at home, and while you're at it, eat some donuts.

Mm, that looks much better than the spinach donut I got at Siam Paragon a few weeks ago. -X

That donut shot is lovely (and I do not really care for donuts), but it sure looks like a buttermilk "cake" donut as evidenced by its cragginess as opposed to a standard glazed yeast donut?

You are right! Isn't that what an old fashioned donut is? Old fashioned donuts are really the only kind of donut i like.

Gosh- I don't really know- just coming from my personal history as a person born in the 50's in So Calif. where the yeast glazed donut is the least common denominator. Keep the great blogging coming please!
