Kelly Family Halloween 2008 and the 2-step homemade donuts...





We had a great Halloween. Josh was the grim reeper (complete costume with blood pump), Emma was Batgirl (white hair + black spray-on dye+ 3 shampoo washings=gray hair), Caleb was Nemo and Elizabeth was a Dalmation. We invited our Mud Lake cousins (Aaron and Rebecca Kelly) over for Dinner-in-a-Pumpkin and Ghoul-Aid to drink, and then the men took the kids trick-or-treating while Rebecca and I made the donuts. Thanks for coming, Kelly's! 1 1/2 hours + 60-degree weather+trick-or-treating= 1 gallon of candy per kid.


2-Step Homemade Donuts:
1. Buy the tube refrigerated biscuits and cut out the center with a 2-Liter lid or Lemon juice lid. Save the donut hole to use as well.


2. Heat 1" of oil in a pot or pan on medium to medium -high heat and fry the donut dough approx. 20-30 seconds on each side until golden brown. Take out of oil and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Enjoy with hot apple cider or milk!

I am going to have to make Brian some of those donuts. He loves anything with buttermilk in it!

We had neighbors fry homemade donuts on the porch for the trick-or-treaters this year. Hillary and Maddie thought that they were the best donuts ever. I'll have to try your little trick and see if they think I am as great as the neighbor lady :)
