National Doughnut Day!

Today is National Doughnut Day, which is always observed the first Friday in June....Apparently, National Doughnut Day honors the Salvation Army ladies of WWI. Salvation Army ladies were sent to the front lines of Europe where they served homemade cooked foods, and provided a morale boost to the troops. Often, the doughnuts were cooked in oil inside the of the metal helmet of an American soldier (infantrymen were often called doughboys).

Check out your local bakery or grocery store and get a doughnut (or two) to celebrate.  If you have the time you can also make your own doughnuts - check out my recipe for Golden Puff Donut Balls!
