Strawberry Donuts

Up until Monday I had been enjoying lunch outside. It was refreshing to leave my desk and listen to the rustling leaves while I ate. With temperatures dropping, I’ve had to settle with eating by a window as the crisp air billows fallen leaves into an atumnal dance.

The change in weather has me longing for summer. I know we have just entered fall, and I should be overjoyed pumpkin spiced lattes are back, but I needed to savor the flavor of summer one last time. Just as a final goodbye.

Strawberry Donuts

So I made strawberry donuts. No, the strawberries were not hand picked from a patch – but they did the trick. For one last hurrah, my taste buds were tickled with the fresh flavor of summer.

Now the pumpkin spice craze can commence:)
