National Donut Day!

Today, Friday the 4th is National Donut Day! Whoo Hoo! Now that is a reason to celebrate!

Look at all the donut deals today:

National Doughnut Day is not a creation of the snack-food industry but actually started in 1938 as a fund-raiser for the Salvation Army. Women of that organization started America’s complicated love affair with the doughnut during World War I. As part of their effort to bring a little bit of home to U.S. troops in France, the Salvation Army served coffee and doughnuts. We couldn’t confirm that the doughnuts were actually fried in metal helmets, but it makes a nice story. Here’s the recipe that was used. Thanks Patti!
