No doughnut analysis this week. I was out of town this weekend, and due to a flight delay (caused by a malfunctioning air conditioner on the plane), I got home past my bedtime. It wasn’t past Gibson’s bedtime, though – they’re always open, which is another reason to love that place.
Gibson’s was in the news this weekend, showing they know how to make doughnuts a celebration (not that eating a doughnut in and of itself isn’t a reason to celebrate): Memphis-based band Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors performed at Gibson’s and bought everyone a doughnut. I can’t think of a better way to enjoy a concert – eating tastee doughnuts! According to one news report, however, people were throwing some doughnuts off the roof.
PEOPLE OF MEMPHIS! You were taught better manners than that!
Now for a bit of a diversion from doughnuts: Although this is strictly a doughnut blog, I wanted to share photos of these cookies from my hair salon in Houston, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary. The stylists at Studio 3 sure knows how to celebrate a decade of beauty, don’t they?
I ate the pink brush-shaped cookie. It was very good.
Speaking of cookies (and one should always speak of cookies), if you like the maple bacon flavor featured in last week’s segment of the doughnut trek and would like to try it in cookie form, head on over to Cousin Gwen’s baking blog and try these tastee maple bacon cookies. I’m trying to figure out if Cousin Gwen wrote secret messages with the maple glaze on the tops of the cookies. She’s just that sneaky! (But in a good way.)
