Donuts Duh - Oh!

Some say the best things in life are free. This week at least they are reasonably priced. There is a Cash and Carry restaurant supply store in Santa Rosa that we visit on occasion. Most of the time to purchase food for a party, on this occasion to stock up on some restaurant style to-go packaging. There are always things that "need" to be purchased, so an hour flew by. After loading the goods, a reward was in order. Sam's donuts is located a few doors down. We had always wanted to try the place but for some reason never had. The place is definitely lacking in atmosphere and decor and perhaps is a bit dodgy. I ordered a huge apple fritter and April, a crumb covered raised to go. As I backed up the car the wife began to channel Meg Ryan from the deli scene in When Harry met Sally. A little startled I wondered what all the happiness was about.

"These donuts are so good, Greg!
"Come on they are just donuts..."

With my first bite I discovered the source of her pleasure. Imagine an apple fritter with real apple in it, perfectly fried and glazed. Oh my!
I'll have what she's having!

Have you been to Cash and Carry in Marin? It's right near Orchard Hdw. and while they don't have as much prepared food as they used to, they still have LOTS of restaurant supplies. My favorite go-to place for less expensive, good quality plain Jane cookware and specialty paper and party supplies. Check it out! (No doughnuts nearby, alas....)

Oh, my, must try the donuts and check out the store, too! Thanks for the tip.

kudzu- I thought they closed when Smart and Final opened.We will check it out. Did you get the cookie recipe?
Zoomie- It is pretty close to the Santa Rosa Farmers Market. Two for the price of one.
