Sandy Treats

Today summer officially ended.  Yes, I know the official first day of fall was last week, and it's still 90 something degrees outside, but today's the day.  Because today the local donut shop, Britts, closed up for the season.

You all know that I live by the beach, so the idea that our critically acclaimed food is donuts might come as a bit of a surprise.  I know, the concept of eating a hot donut and sipping whole milk while standing in the sand on a hot summer morning does not sound all that appealing.  But trust me.  It is.  People come from all over to have these donuts.  They're seriously like nothing you've ever tasted before.  They only make one kind, glazed.  But they literally melt in your mouth and the sweetness is just short of overwhelming.  I can only buy a half dozen at a time because I've been known to eat more than 4 in a day.  They're just that good.  And only about 15 minutes down the road (Yes, I live about 15 minutes from the beach and I never go.  I'm a bad person and will try to work on that).

So, as a last hurrah I broke my 6 donut rule and bought a dozen yesterday.  I still have 6 left as I sit here typing, but I'm not so sure how long that will last.  They're just so good!
