Are you a hometown tourist? Will you be one?
I've never really thought of doing this before. And there is this fun social challenge going on in Social Insiders that I am participating in. I think this will be interesting.
Be a tourist in your hometown! Go see something new, try a new restaurant, or shop in a new store. What makes your town unique? What do you love about living in your town? Blog about your experience and share it with us.
Every so often I love donuts. A few times a year I indulge.
When I heard of a new donut shop coming just a few miles closer to our home, I've been excited. It would be a new building, but same owners from another branch farther away.
We do not travel that direction often anymore because our library is no longer in that direction and my friend whom I used to visit, has died. But it turns out we still have soccer and some church programs from another church in that direction.
I reckon we can perhaps have a treat, if I have any extra money to share.
Now I've lived in Lousiana for quite a long time and have not had the pleasure of trying the beignets as yet.
And I was excited for the new Rickey Meche's donut shop, so I could try their beignets :)
They are really good....but I expected some fruits or nuts or something else inside as filling. These seems to be just dough with powdered sugar. Lots of powder! But good :)
I might want to try making them myself at some point. Or just look up the recipe.
Rickey Meche's Donuts serve a wide variety of donuts, king cakes , kolashes, coffees and more! Their stores are always clean and inviting! And I think they do have really sweet :) deals often!
And I do want to try their beignets quite a few more times before moving on to another menu item :)
Have you had beignets before?
Do you like donuts?
Do you have any donut jokes to share?
You can read their story here and maybe if you are in town, stop by for a little visit.
