I had a moment of weakness this afternoon. I wish I could describe it as a "rare" moment of weakness, but that wouldn't be true. Ignoring the healthy fruit sitting in my office, and the cut-up veggies in the fridge, I decided to indulge in an Eskimo donut to satisfy my afternoon craving!
For those who don't know what an Eskimo donut is (which I'm assuming is most of you!), it's a deep-fried dough with holes poked in it. Some say it looks like the dial on an old-fashioned rotary phone. It doesn't have a lot of sugar in it, so it can be eaten as savory or sweet. It is hugely popular in the Arctic, and you will find it at any community event, gathering, or feast.
People also make them for various fundraisers, which is why we often have donuts available at the office!
Because I like my treats really sweet, I decided to warm up my donut in the microwave for a few seconds until it was really soft and gooey and pour honey on it. Yummmmmmm.
