More donuts, for your pleasure

Inspired (there's that word again) by a recent Give It To Me Raw discussion, I decided to make this Friday's donuts (my usual Friday breakfast; check out my last Friday or Saturday posts), incorporating chocolate, cherries and maca, and served with fresh strawberries and dried persimmons (doesn't provide the same juicy experience this way, but I found them at Trader Joe's yesterday).

Just to mix things up a bit, I formed the routinely round donut holes into mini donut shapes. This caught my hubby's attention, who was wondering why we weren't having them last night for dinner (I'll fill you in on our "Thursday Night Raw" tomorrow). I guess we all know now what we'll be having next week. But, I told him he had to try a green smoothie with them. Chocolate flavored, perhaps?

Yes, you'll have to wait until tomorrow to hear about our meal. I've gotta go to work today, and when I get home, I like to spend the evening with my boys, eating leftovers (love it in my house), while they devour a pizza, and we all watch the new shows on Cartoon Network (like Chowder, my fav. I added cinnamon to the donuts, which reminded me of the cinnamini episode. I looked for it on You Tube, and found this video instead) and play video games on the XBox 360 and Wii.

Hope you are spending your evening with loved ones tonight, too. See you tomorrow :-)

Those donuts look amazing. Plain chocolate was my favorite and D&D.

You are killing me.

(you've gotten the feasters' attention)

Nice job with this one.

Yup, me too.
Salivating. Ha ha!
I love the cross-section of the persimmons, so pretty.
You've rocked it once again, RR.

Philip, I really like the chocolate ones, too. Actually, I think I like anything chocolate.

B, how many days do you have left? Philip is juice feasting, too.

Carrie, you are the third juice feaster in a row to respond to this post. Does this mean juicing makes you crave donuts?

Those donuts look delish! Step aside dunkin donuts and krispy kreme!

Mmmm, Krispie Kreme. Gotta make me some of those.
