Donut Strawberry Shortcakes Going to work at 5:00am

Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (most of the time) I get up, brush my teeth, put my work out clothes on, start the coffee, fill my water bottle, grab my bag and head to the gym.  I've been doing this for 3 years now.  This morning was no different.  I jumped in my car and headed out.  I was thinking about work things, started planning my day and before you know it, I was at work.  I jumped out of my car and went to open the door, it was locked.  "What the hell?" I thought.  I looked around, the parking lot was EMPTY...except for me.  "What the hell?"  I thought again.  I looked at the door and caught my reflection, there I stood, staring back at my workout clothes.  I was headed to the gym, not work!  I got in my car and went to the gym.

So I've never done that before, but years ago I did make it to work with one of the kids in the baby seat.  It wasn't until I pulled into my parking spot and turned around to grab my bag when I realized I forgot to stop at the sitter.  Am I the only one who has ever done that?  Anyone?

I decided it was because I was skipping dessert, and my glucose levels were down because of it.  So, on the way home that evening, I stopped at the store and picked up donuts, whipped cream, and strawberries and made this.  I didn't cook, stir, or mix anything for dessert.  I just really enjoyed it.  And considering the next day was Saturday, I didn't want to accidentally show up at work.

  1. Beautiful donuts! I think Mondays temporarily take over my brain cells... I have gone to the wrong place before! But surely donuts will solve the problem!
