Thank God and the Salvation Army for National Doughnut Day!
Yes, you read that correctly. According to the Salvation Army web site, the first Friday in June was set aside in 1938 to commemorate Salvation Army volunteers who braved the front lines in World War I (!) to serve the tasty treat to soldiers stationed in France.
I always knew my donut obsession was for a greater cause.
Dunkin' Donuts and Krispy Kreme stores are offering free donuts today, but if you're looking for something a little more upscale Grace Restaurant on Beverly Boulevard is celebrating all weekend with a gourmet tasting menu.
Now, time to make, er, eat the donuts.
