Season of Peeking: week 2
Here is your Holiday Sneak Peek for this week. I am really enjoying this challenge. I am trying to get an interesting photo that doesn't completely reveal what the objects are. Sort of thinking along the lines of optical illusion. Should be a good exercise in my photography skills! This one won't be revealed until after Christmas! Mwah-hah-hah!!!
Also, I want to talk about donuts. And not about making them. About buying them. And not from little mom-and-pop donut shops in my neighborhood. I am thinking about buying donuts from Dunkin' Donuts.
When I was growing up, my family would often buy a box of a dozen donuts for breakfast on Sunday mornings. And I loved the donuts that reflected the season. Orange icing with black and orange sprinkles for Halloween. White icing with red and green sprinkles for Christmas. Pink icing with pastel sprinkles for Easter. Thinking of it now my heart feels all sentimental and squooshy.
I'm wondering what my boys will look back on and get squooshy feelings about. The Cauliflower Gratin we had last night for dinner? Or maybe the oatmeal rolls I made a few days ago? Or even the cakes and cookies that flow in a continual stream from my oven? I guess it's true. My boys are not lacking for sentimental sweets. And still, that comfort is not enough to convince me to avoid holiday donuts.
Holiday goal: Just buy the box of donuts already.
