Life in the office recently has included some new additions. I thought that it might be nice if we all enjoyed a round of fried chicken and donuts in order to get to know each other a little better/really, come on, any excuse for fried chicken and donuts in the office is winning. So a Monday or so back that's just what happened. I excitedly placed the order for 5 1/2 chickens with varying spice configurations, and an even dozen of fancy donuts on the preceding Friday before the determined Monday meal. Then I took it upon myself to go and pick up the whole kit and caboodle. It took a little longer than I thought, as they didn't actually start frying the chicken til I was there, but the results were, in my humble opinion, quite good. While I waited I enjoyed a complimentary warm lavender donut. It was so warm that I didn't bother with a photograph before devouring it. In the end I came back to the office laden with the tell-tale red striped boxes of the Federal Donuts brand. And what a feast.
