Keep Your Eye Upon The Donut

As mom arrives in town I had a nice egg bake to kickstart the NYC weekend.  Simple chest eggs atop a layer of hash browns baked 15 minutes before adding the eggs, caramelized onions, and cheese.  IMG_3124 IMG_3125   Then we were off running in the Jingle Bell Run where we met Santa and received lots of tasty goodies including my favorite tortilla chips.  They also gave us Lara bars which I did not enjoy at all.


After the chilly run, we thought it would only be appropriate to treat ourselves to fresh donuts.  It was opening night of the exhibit “Keep Your Eye Upon the Donut” exhibit at the City Reliquary in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  It was a very small (and stereotypical hipster) exhibit, but worth the trek for the free donuts and a delicious dinner at the nearby restaurant Rye after (where we enjoyed more donuts as part of our meal).

I have officially concluded that I enjoy Donut Plant’s unique square donuts and Peter Pan’s strawberry iced and sprinkled yeast donuts, but after all they are just fried dough.  I am partial to a fresh hot off the press donut and something more interesting than a vanilla, chocolate or maple glazed donut. This was only achieved by the masters behind the  Doughnuttery.  They make all donuts fresh to order and cover with the glaze or sugar combo of your choice(the options are very interesting and tasty).  They come in orders of 6 clocking in at nearly $1 a pop, but they are much better than their bite size cupcake equivalent Baked By Melissa.IMG_3147

Cheers to the donut! Here we are testing the Peter Pan donuts and above I was literally keeping my eye upon the donut.

So ready to have the whole Klinger clan return to the big city for the holidays!
