Last week I found myself in Cissi’s Wine Bar on South Congress. If you know me, you might be thinking that I’m not really the wine bar type. It’s true, and I think it was the first time I’d ever been in one. However, they were having a special event which involved free desserts, and that is my vice. Belgian Ale Doughnuts are awesome, especially when dipped in caramel sauce.
At this point, we’d had three very active days with lots of walking. We were both pretty tired, it was Christmas Eve, and we were supposedly on vacation. It was time to slow things down a little and relax more. We start off with breakfast at Krispy Kreme. I pick out three doughnuts for myself—one chocolate glazed with cream filling, one “classic” glazed fresh from the cooling rack, and one festive donut with red, white and green Xmas sprinkles.
