My husband finally returned home this weekend, after having been abroad for training for a little over a month. Who can’t stop smiling? This girl! I’m so happy to have my family all together in one place again! To celebrate, we had one of my favorite breakfasts ever this weekend: biscuit donuts.You know, “homemade” donuts made from store bought biscuit dough.
When I was a little girl, my parents used to make these for my sisters and me all the time. We rarely had them for breakfast, though. Instead, they were our movie night snack! Mom and Dad would get the oil heating while my two sisters and I took turns cutting the holes into the biscuits. Then, after my parents fried the donuts, they would drop them into bags of sugar and my sisters and I would shake our little hearts out to get as much sugar on each donut as possible. Once all of the donuts were done, we’d all pile into my parent’s bed Â for a movie together. Can you believe how crazy they were to let three little girls eat sugary, crumbly donuts in their bed?! After tucking us into bed, they must have spent so much time cleaning their own bed up before they could sleep. Those nights are among the most wonderful memories of my childhood, and they’ve led to amazing memories for me and my family too.
