Happy Galentine’s Day…. wait… what? Yes, Happy Galentine’s Day!
You know what Galentine’s Day is don’t you? haha It’s the day before Valentines and it’s the day where you celebrate the amazing “BFFs” in your life 🙂
I have some pretty amazing gal pals in my life! I actually have so many that I don’t think I could fit them all into one blog post! BUT the top 4 girls in my life/ my BFFs/ my loves would be the following: Crystal, Meghan, Nikki, and Rachael (Yes, I did just put them in alphabetical order so that no one felt bad haha, I like to keep things equal like that) Hi girls!!!
Crystal – Married into our family and is now my cousin!
Meghan- My brother’s girlfriend and probably my future sister in law!
Nikki – Best Buddy since humm…. 2003! Holy wow!
Rachael – Big Bear’s sister /my sister in law!!
So if I had to pick my favorite ladies to spend Galentine’s Day with it would be them. What would I make for Galentine’s Day? Why I’d make these Chocolate Dipped Donuts!
So let me tell you about these Chocolate Dipped Donuts for a bit. They’re kinda “cheater” donuts. I almost didn’t post about them because they’re “cheater” donuts. I know how some people get so upset with “recipes” that aren’t totally from scratch and being a food blogger opens up a whole new world of “food snobbery” <– I think that’s the right word. I mean not that there is anything wrong with being a “food snob” if that’s what you want, it just kind of makes me sad when people push their “food snobbery” onto others and make them feel bad about their food choices or traditions. (this is totally different than showing concern over a loved ones bad food choices in my opinion)
I say this because these “donuts” are made from canned biscuits *GASP* see… I heard it. I just saw the eye roll from a few people. In the “food world” people will look at these ingredients and say “Pff, those are not donuts and shouldn’t even be on a food blog” but then I talk to people in my own city…in my life that say “Oh my, yes I would totally make those”, “I can’t believe it’s from canned biscuit”, “my grandmother use to make these!”
So I decided to post about them. I picture these little “donuts” in the corner of the classroom with a little “Dunce” hat on because no one wants them because they’re “not from scratch”… to that I say, “totally fine” because I’ll be over in the corner enjoying my donuts with chocolate glaze with my friends celebrating Galentine’s Day haha because I KNOW my girlfriends would love these! 😉
