Day #110 - Birthday Bash with Delish' Donuts! A yummy recipe for today!

Good morning, all!

Happy birthday shout outs for my family: my brother, my sister and my oldest grandson's birthday are all in the same week!  Luv yah all! 

We celebrated all 3 last night with a birthday bash: lots of desserts (rather like a dessert bar!), presents and laughter!  I took yesterday's posting's coffee embroidery and made a mug rug for my sister - sorry but in my rush I forgot to take a final picture!  Suffice to say I lined it with a towel, backed it with a chocolate brown and quilted it with a black thread so the designs popped out!  (All done AFTER I got home from work, thank you very much!)

For my grandson, it was his first Tonka!  He and his brother were driving it around the porch, with his new Buzz Lightyear  driving, thanks to his great-grandmother!
And, for my brother, it was yummy time! Donuts! It's a once a year thing I like to do for him as he enjoys them and as good as they are, they are NOT considered health food by the stretch of anyone's imagination! Thanks go out to my DD, Kel, who mixed the dough so that when I got home all I had to do was cook them!
