National Donut Day


Somehow, the day is nearly over and I just found out that today is National Donut Day. One of my favorite holidays! Even though today is the first time I've ever heard of it. I just want a donut now and called Lindsey to ask her to stop by Krispy Kreme on the way home to get some hot fresh ones for us to have tomorrow for breakfast, but she was almost home. Maybe I've got everyone else wanting one now.

Great. I satisfied my donut urge as I sent Lindsey off this morning to buy a dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for the four of us. Now I really need to get on the treadmill after finishing my allotment of three circular dough balls of bliss per person in our family. It was tasty!

Oh man. My mom has turned me into a dedicated donut fan, and after finding out there is a HOLIDAY in honor of these delectable delicacies... I don't know if I will be able to withstand temptation.

You didn't mention the most important part, Krispy Kreme was giving free hot ones away for those who come into the store :)

I have the unfortunate pleasure of working with a very generous guy each Saturday who as a loyal Krispy Kreme stockholder and buys and brings 5 dozen donuts every single week. It's evil, you can smell them the minute you walk in the door, warm and mouth-watering. What's a man to do???

If I it were possible I would eat them everyday. I LOVE doughnuts. Frosted, glazed, sprinkles, or cake, you name it I will eat it willingly.

I think that the next time I am out I will be getting some, even if it is not on the holiday.

Mmmmmmm, every Saturday is donut day at our house. My taste buds love having a donut shop right down the street, but my waist line doesn't!

I wish I knew about NDD. What a shame. I'll have to recreate the day sometime this week ;)

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
