How to eat a donut

I’m a little quirky when it comes to eating certain foods.  When I was a kid, I used to pick off all of the meat and cheese of my pizza and eat just the bread.  I also used to peel the hamburger out of my McDonald’s Happy meal and leave only the cheese and bread to have a grilled cheese.  I thought this quirky behavior was “just me”. 

Once a week, we take the kids to get donut holes on the way to school.  Ryan always gets glazed and Reese gets chocolate covered.  We knew Reese liked chocolate but after a closer look—she was literally eating ONLY the chocolate!  Out of 12 donut holes, all of them were missing the chocolate tops and the bottoms were thrown back in the bag.

I stopped this morning to get some donuts and bring them back to the house for everyone and witnessed it myself!

And then…. Erik pointed out that she learned this from me!  WHAT!?  No way.  I do not destroy my donuts…. well…… maybe I do.

In my defense, this is truly the best way to eat a donut!   I encourage you all to try this if you like chocolate covered donuts.  Peal the bottom off all around.  It is the softest donut EVER!! Tastes so much better and 1/2 the fat! hah! 
Like Mother, Like Daughter… so cute!

I love that you blogged about this. I love it even more that I have witnessed this as well!

Super funny that she gets it from you. :)

My little guys only eating quirks seems to be that EVERYTHING needs ketchup and he won't eat anything green and hates hot dogs.

Kids are so funny!

I really only need to eat half the donut anyway!

Oh, I love that weekly tradition! Your post made me laugh--I also do that! Why waste my time on the whole donut if I mostly just like the top half.

And she is such a cutie! It's nice to have a fellow chocolate lover. :)

Love it! Alex eats just the frosting off of sugar cookies but so far donuts are safe :)

You are so freakin' adorable!!! I love the photo of you with the donut!

I wish I had your restraint! My post about eating donuts would go a little like this: Open the box. 5 minutes later? 12 donuts are gone.

BUT, I do like to lick all the powdered sugar off of them first. :o)

I do the exact same thing with my donuts!!! Except I eat all of it LOL. I just like the taste of the frosting, sprinkles, and a little bit of the breading. :)
