So I missed posting yesterday. Sorry, NaBloPoMo. I was going to do it before I left to go running with Jenny, Bill, and Cole, but I thought for sure I'd be home before midnight. Of course, Jenny and I stayed up talking until 1:30 so by the time I got home, I was too tired to do anything but take a shower and crash.

I did have a post planned for yesterday - a follow up to my original Donut Man post, in fact. I drove 40 miles roundtrip to Glendora because I read on Yelp that it was the last week for strawberry donuts. (Stupid me, I heard Masa say they were gone but I thought he just meant for the day, not the year.)

I kind of knew I was in for disappointment when I drove up and saw a guy painting a sign for fresh peach donuts on the wall of the place. Eric, the guy behind the counter, told me they'd just finished with strawberry season two days earlier. Curses! I asked him what I should order instead and he recommended a cream cheese and raspberry topped donut. I also took an apple crumb for good measure; I figured the fruit is why they're best-known so I couldn't go wrong. (He also mentioned that they serve cream cheese pumpkin donuts in October and November. NOM!)

I haven't come close to finishing the half of each donut I kept for myself (I dropped off half of each one for the Ex on my way down to Lakewood to put in the offer on the house) but they are pretty good, if not exactly what I was craving. I'm not sure they were worth the drive, though.

Lakewood?, as in the city? Nice community! It's the neighbor of my hometown, East LBC. :) Fingers crossed on the bid.

that is the very same lakewood. :) it is a nice place; in fact, my organization has a building and several hundred staff in that city.

thanks for the good wishes!
