Mellow Yellow Monday – 07

yeasty treat with glaze
tempts taste buds but broadens hips
on occasion ~ key

Since 1926, people from all over the world have enjoyed the tasty orangy-yellow donuts from Round Rock Donuts.   Round Rock is 17 miles north of Austin, Texas.  People start lining up at 4 am to purchase these hot and fresh delights.  I have seen cars lined around a city block to either secure a spot in the parking lot, or the drive-up window.  It is a sight to behold.

Read the “hole story” on Round Rock Donuts

We do not get to enjoy these often.  However, when we are near the area, we visit this historic “Texas Tradition” for a treat (or two).  An added bonus for this South Louisiana girl … they serve my favorite brand of Louisiana coffee, Community Coffee.   Imagine, Louisiana coffee in the center of Texas!

Mellow Yellow Monday #156

I stumbled upon Mellow Yellow Monday, whose specialty is all things yellow. Intrigued, as yellow is my favorite color, I decided to interject some “sunshine” for the winter months.

The prompt seems simple according to the introduction and directions:
Mellow Monday states … “I chose yellow for this photo meme because it’s my favourite colour and I think the world is always better with a splash of yellow … whether it’s in your home or in nature.

The rules are pretty simple:
1. Every Monday post a photo with a little or a lot of yellow.
2. Please only post photos you have authority to use.
3. Include a Mellow Yellow Badge or a link to this blog in your post.
4. Leave the link to your Mellow Yellow post below on Mr. Linky.
5. Visit other blogs listed … comment & enjoy!”

    I won’t linger long, Becca, I can feel my hips already!

    Ah, doughnuts……………….sigh. Not in the jungles of Brazil. I have tried to make them but they were a heavy, greasy mess. Your descriptions of the coffee and doughnuts brings back great memories of the French Quarter in New Orleans forty years ago. hugs, pat

    Congdon’s Doughnuts, originally from Kennebunkport, ME–now with several other (local) locations has the same kind of rabid following. When My Beloved sandra & I travel there, it’s where we break our fast. And they serve my favorite brand of coffee (French Market).

    I love the yellow thing. A painter friend of mine is obsessed with yellow; uses it spectacularly in all of his work. His name’s Adrien Patenaude, but everyone just calls him “Yellow.” Here’s some of his work

    You have me for a lifetime fan with your self-declared love of Community Coffee. How can you have good coffee otherwise? I grew up in Mississippi but have many relatives in South Louisiana. I learned to love chicory and crawdads at about the same early age. We’ll postpone discussion of the culinary and musical joys of all-night hog-killings and sausage -stuffings for another time, okay? I really MUST get back to Texas and try these doughnuts, also.

      I can drink many coffees — but none replace my Dark Roast Community. I have converted many people. I import those beautiful red bags — 10 lbs at a time. When I run low, I know it’s time for me to make a trip back to Louisiana for a visit. 😀
      Glad to know, granbee, you have such good taste in the delicacies of Louisiana. Way to go!!!
