... because I'm talking about donuts again (Wasn't that the topic of my last post? Oh yeah, I did tell you I'd show you more today).
Remember that movie with Bill Murray, where he kept reliving the same day over and over again? We used to watch it in the video store I worked at as a teen. I saw it so many times, that I began to feel like I was reenacting my own version of the film.
So, here we go again, back to the donuts. This is becoming a weekly topic (usually on Fridays); hopefully, I'm not boring you with them. It's like that Dunkin' Donuts commercial, "Time to make the donuts ... I made the donuts."
Actually, I made them on Thursday, as part of our "Thursday Night Raw" (I think this was our fourth installment). As I said yesterday, although Matthew was ill (thank you for all your well wishes), he ate two of them (pictured in my last post), along with his first green smoothie ever.
His smoothie was chocolate banana (he drank the whole thing), while mine was orange pineapple banana (sounds like we switched smoothies; he could've used the citrus to help his immune system; he's still sick).
The donuts were something I came up with that day. I made three base recipes (chocolate, plain and something reminiscent of peanut butter), which I shaped (thankfully, I didn't take any pointers from this Swedish chef. I grew up watching the Muppet Show), dehydrated for a few hours on each side and decorated similar to some of my favorites (I had a raspberry jelly donut, pink iced with multi-colored sprinkles and vanilla iced with maple flakes).
I displayed them on my old cooling racks (another creative use for something I don't really need much anymore), just like my own mini Dunkin' Donuts.
I'd give you the recipes today, but I need some time to collect my thoughts (due to the last minute preparation of this meal, I didn't exactly take the best notes). I'll either post them on my blog in the future, or see if Dhru is interested in having them on We Like It Raw this week (if not, I have something else up my sleeve).
My hubby and I spent the rest of our Thursday watching "Billy Madison" and "The Wedding Singer" (there must have been an Adam Sandler marathon on cable, and no, Matthew wasn't interested in the Mermaid movies). I just love the part where Adam serenades Drew Barrymore on the plane at the end (too bad Matthew's uncle had to call in the middle of that part - ha, ha, I know he's reading this. That's when the pause on the DVR really comes in handy).
I just love the '80s. My favorite non-current song ("How Soon Is Now" by the Smiths, although its been covered quite a few times) is from that decade (doesn't everyone have an older and a more recent fav?). It's also on "The Wedding Singer" soundtrack.
Speaking of the '80s and music/movies, remember how I posted about Kevin Bacon? Did you know that post was mentioned on a website dedicated to everything related to bacon (of course, I can't find it now that I'm looking for it)? I don't even consume the stuff, but you can enjoy the flavor in this dehydrated snack on the Sunny Raw Kitchen site. Watch out Carmi, you'll be next on the bacon blog.
