Busy busy busy [Mar. 6th, 2008|11:35 pm]

But not with anything interesting enough to blog about. But I will share a quick story.

Sometimes on weekends we get donuts for breakfast. We go in our pj's, and the kids go along, and we spend the whole way there talking about what kind of donuts we're going to get, even though we always get the same kinds. And the whole way home we talk about how good the donuts make the car smell, and how we can't wait to get home and eat them.

The problem with donut weekends is that over the months, the number of donuts we get has grown. Originally it was a plain cake for me, and a plain glazed for Husband, and a chocolate glazed for The Boy, and a cinnamon twist for Middle Daughter. But then we discovered the donut place also sells kolaches, so Middle Daughter and I had to get sausage and cheese kolaches. And then The Boy decided he really wanted two donuts. And then Middle Daughter couldn't decide between a cinnamon twist and some donut holes, so why not get both?

So this past weekend, instead of getting four little bags of donuts, I asked if we could just get them in a box. Which was very exciting to The Boy. He got to carry the box to the car, and hold it in his lap on the way home. And as I'm driving, I hear him pipe up from the back seat, Mom! I feel like I'm holding a treasure chest!!

It's memories like these that make childhood so special. I still remember getting kolaches and donuts before church on Sundays.

We have a long standing disagreement in our house- hubby loves Shipley donuts and I think their kolaches stink and since I don't really like donuts, we have to go through a donut vs. kolache debate each time.

Yeah, Shipley kolaches leave a lot to be desired, but they do have the best donuts. I wish the kolache place was a little closer to our house, because then we could get the best of both. Hmmm...maybe on our next donut run I'll take a little detour...

Shipley's. I'm not a big fan of Krispy Kremes. They weren't available here until a few years ago. Everyone made a big deal out of them, and then about two years later they all closed down.

What are kolaches??? OMG, you don't know what you're missing!! Traditionally they have fruit fillings, but you can get them with just about anything inside these days. It's a roll-type pastry with a fruit or other filling, kind of like a danish but not as icky sweet. I like the sausage and cheese best.

I thought this was interesting:

Since it was just posted yesterday, when you asked. The town she mentions, West, is where my Uncle Ray grew up. His parents were Czech immigrants. His father was the town blacksmith. My uncle grew up speaking Czech and didn't learn English until he started school. Now that he's retired he's an Honorary Consulate for the Czech Republic. Somewhere I have his mother's recipe for making kolaches, but I've never tried it because they are a lot of work to make.

Kolaches are awesome! Sort of like a danish, only a zillion times better. You can get them sweet (with fruit) or savory (with everything from cheese to bbq). You might have eaten some when you were in Austin and not known what they were.

I totally agree with him. Indeed, that's a treasure! So what kind of donut place is this? Is it a mom and pop place or a big chain? Heck ... I love them ALL! ;-)

Have a great weekend

The one by our house is a Shipley's, which just happens to be my favorite. But it's hard to find a bad donut!

OMG, kolakches with anything other than raspberry or apricot jam in them are blasphemous. My great grandmother must be rolling in her grave. (I'm a die hard Slovak. LOL!)

But treasure chest? Yes, indeed!

Now THIS is a proper kolachky. Of course they forgot the powdered sugar on top. LOL! (We also called them diaper cookies.)

*snort* There's as many different spellings of "kolache" as there are fillings.
And Texas - they always gotta try to outdo the rest of the world. *giggle*

(I still prefer my diaper cookies, so there! ;P~~~~~~ )

Hmm, looks like rugala to me.

In my small world, I had no idea that kolaches were unique to Texas. I found out when in Florida after 3 different donut shops and they kept asking me -a what? That and no Diet Dr Pepper. I could never live there.
