What kind of donut are you?

Gabriella at My Life As A Reluctant Housewife shared this fun little blogthing. It definitely hit the nail on the head. A good Boston Creme donut is indeed my favorite morning pastry. Dunkin Donuts makes the best one...Unfortunately for me, but fortunate for my waistline, there are no Dunkin Donuts in my part of the country.

The only part of the "donut assessment" that I don't agree with is the resistance to change. I don't mind change. Change brings new things and excitement into life. I may be a traditionalist in the kitchen though. I prefer baked goods from scratch, homemade jams, jellies, and homemade pickles. I love to bake bread, but I hate using my stand mixer to mix the dough- it must be done by hand to achieve the perfect texture.

The tough exterior/easy pushover must be addressed as well. I do think I appear tough on the outside. Even though I am always smiling, I tend to be a little more quiet/reserved in public. I hate people who walk into a room and dominate a party or a conversation, so I try not to be that person. But I can certainly work a room or a party and make sure that every person there feels welcome and wanted. However. I am not easily pushed-over by anyone- except for my kids (sucker Mom). I do have a soft spot and am in general a kindhearted person. But I am very firm in my opinions and am not afraid to share those. And woe to the person who decides to cross me or thinks they can better me in one way or another. I always win. So I would say that at the very core of my soft squishy donut filling interior I am hard as a rock. But not just any rock- a gem. A diamond. I dare anyone to try and break that. :-)

You Are a Boston Creme Donut

You have a tough exterior. No one wants to mess with you.
But on the inside, you're a total pushover and completely soft.
You're a traditionalist, and you don't change easily.
You're likely to eat the same doughnut every morning, and pout if it's sold out.

You Are a Caramel Crunch Donut

You're a complex creature, and you're guilty of complicating things for fun.
You've been known to sit around pondering the meaning of life...
Or at times, pondering the meaning of your doughnut.

To frost or not to frost? To fill or not to fill? These are your eternal questions.

I've certainly been called worse than a Caramel Crunch Donut! Hee hee...for the record, though, I was a philosophy major in college...ironic??

A caramel Crunch Donut sounds really good right now!
