This past week, my kids got a hungering for Krispy Kreme doughnuts. We hadn't treated ourselves to those glorious glazed pastry perfections in ages and they desperately wanted me to drive them north 30 minutes to the Krispy Kreme in our backyard. I said that since my son has his driver's license, he could drive up there any old time he wanted.
So it was settled. They would wait until I or my husband was able to go too.
Then yesterday, my son decided he would drive there himself. =) He went online to get the address and came back to us with distressing news. Our local Krispy Kreme is closing! As of today, at 4pm, we will no longer be able to zip up north to satisfy our Krispy Kreme craving.....
That settled dinner plans. Doughnuts for dinner, with tall glasses of milk, until we pushed away from the table, full or in the case of two teenage boys, over-full. And it was very good.
My husband loves to tell the story of eating ice cream for dinner once when he was a kid and I always hoped our kids would have that kind of story to tell their own children.....now they do.
