Donut Time!

 Yesterday morning I headed to Pilgrim Church at 3:40am to help an army of volunteers whip up the famous donuts served weekly at the Oak Park Farmer's Market.  This was the second time the Oak Park and River Forest Day Nursery partnered with the church to split the proceeds from the donut sale and my second time running the fryer in the kitchen.  It was the first time, however, I fried a couple thousand donuts without sleeping a wink!  As unwise as it may have been to hover over a lake of 375 degree palm oil for 3 hours in a sleep deprived state, the donuts turned out well and the company was wonderful.  I just love being on the inside of this iconic Oak Park operation!  Seeing the long line of people waiting to buy some delicious donuts after sweating it out in a church kitchen cavern is a great way to start the day!
