on the menu: Union Square Donuts

On April 5, 2014 by theseventhsphinx



Union Square Donuts, one of the best doughnut places around, recently started delivering. They deliver. Doughnuts! To me!


So, that happened.


Brown Butter Hazenut Crunch (!)


Maple Bacon (!)

These are excellent doughnuts, of the brioche-like rather than the cake-like breed. I like both styles…and tend to prefer whichever one I am at that moment putting into my mouth. These are massive, too.

The delivery guy was a chunk of sunshine (why wouldn’t he be, spreading joy all over?), and I think I may have failed to respond to a fist-bump invitation? But it could have been he was doing a kind of victory fist pump as if to say, “Doughnuts. Right on.”

Ah, doughnuts. I love doughnuts.

Zucchini/mushroom orzo rolled up into a bacon/thyme/manchego frittata + wheat tortilla.

[I am at that point in the grocery cycle where I have some leftovers, and a little bit of a lot of things.]

So good!

Once in a while the bizarre combinations work out.

Say what you will about iceberg lettuce. It has crunch.

Flavor? I can add flavor. i.e. bacon. i.e. herbs. i.e. cheese. i.e. more cheese. i.e. rye croutons.

on the menu: havarti + egg sandwich with bacon and capers
