Each fall, we have this tradition. When the weather starts getting chillier and the leaves begin to fall from the trees, we mix up some dough, pull out the oil, kettle, and pans, and make some doughnuts!
Here are some pictures of "doughnut-making day." It was such fun........that "hissing and bubbling" when you drop the doughnuts into the scalding hot oil, the powdered sugar all over the kitchen, the discussions about why the doughnuts are too dark and if the oil is too hot or not hot enough, the reminders from Mother to "not lick your fingers" while you roll the doughnuts in powdered sugar, the delicious taste of a fresh and hot doughnut with a cup of milk, the fun of sharing the finished products with others, the utterly "fried" (like MacDonalds?) smell you are left with.................it all combines for wonderful memories!
Elizabeth helped to cut the doughnuts out.
Don't those look "scrummy"? (scrumptious/yummy= a word that I heard from a dear friend. It seems to be a wonderful description!) Needless to say, we ate plenty of these delicious treats before the end of the day!
