OMG, I was sitting here being lazy on my last official day off from my surgery thinking – I would kill for a Krispy Kreme doughnut about right now but was being waaaay too lazy to get up and go get one (also knowing I sure did not need one).

Actually my FB status said “I want a Krispy Creme Doughnut so bad I could slap myself.”

Well. A high school friend then informed me of something I must try.

Get ready for it.

A Krispy Kreme Doughnut Milkshake from Flip Burger Boutique in Birmingham.

oh dear.

I just thought I wanted the doughnut.

Someone needs to bring to mama.

Needless to say – I will be making a trip to Flip Burger – I had wanted to go eat there anyway, I just had never gotten around to it. Very interesting menu. If KK doughnuts are not your thing they have plenty of others to offer. Check it out below.

There are two locations in Atlanta and one in Birmingham, AL.

Now I will have to add KK Doughnut Milkshake to my want to make list right beside the KK Doughnut Bread Pudding!

I’ll be back in the kitchen later this week so be looking for Chocolate Chip Nutella Cookies and Pecan and Rosemary Oven-Fried Chicken.

The day has finally arrived! After over a year since it was destroyed by the April 27th, 2011 tornados – Krispy Kreme has reopened!!! YAY!!!!

And I was lucky enough to have a sweet hubby who stood in line for an hour this morning and brought me some to work.

Well, a lot of it had to do with the fact that my adorable stepson is the biggest KK fan ever! And this past weekend that’s all he could talk about. So, this morning at 6:45 a.m. the two of them headed out to brave the crowds!!

(people had even camped out the night before!)

Oh Oh! You know it was worth it, though! HOT NOW donuts are the best. I mean the best. They evaporate on contact with your mouth! That’s why you can eat 6 of them and not blink an eye but that means they also evaporate off you butt too, right???? Well, at least, that’s how I’m going to think about it.

Do you know there is an app for you phone that tells you when they are “HOT NOW”?

There is. I’ve got it. 🙂

In honor of this special occasion, I will be making a Krispy Kreme donut bread pudding next week.

(I’m going to let those lines die down a bit first.)

How sinfully good do you think that will be?? Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!

Weeeelllll, not too much else going on today.  I think after dinner (which consists of Taco Soup pulled from the freezer) I might try and whip up that Creamy Peanut Butter Tart.

Until then.
