Homemade Donuts, Bounce, Wishful Sewing

More donuts! We just can't get enough. Except these ones are from our own kitchen and they are baked, not fried. Just imagine how excited I was to find this recipe featured in the Register Guard this week. They look delicious, don't they?

Don't be fooled. These "donuts" are essentially chocolate rocks. I was so very disappointed. The recipe even says "And once you slather them with a chocolate glaze, you'll never know you skipped the frying." Bullshit. I'm going back to Holy Donuts for all of my future fried dough needs!

And I had been on such a recipe roll, too. I recently made this amazing (slightly weird, but very tasty) Butternut Squash Apple Soup and baked up a crazy good batch of these Double Chocolate Cookies with a group of seventh graders. I served the soup with homemade dinner rolls and poor Jack somehow misheard me and thought we were having cinnamon rolls with dinner. He was quite disappointed.

A rainy Saturday morning was spent at Bounce Gymnastics.

Now if only I could find the time to sew these pajamas already! I've been on a quest for the perfect pajama pattern and this just might be THE ONE. I just want a pattern that makes sense, has manageable instructions for the collar, and fits the proportions of a reasonably sized child. Fingers are crossed this time. I am hopeful.
