I made you all guess what the food fantasy was last week when I posted an eeny teeny tiny piece of the picture. I was very impressed with Ruth's guesses of elephant ears, funnel cakes, and crepes. In fact, I may just make some funnel cakes a food fantasy topic in the near future. But it was Jenn who took me by surprise when she totally guessed it. And if you visit her blog, you'll see her wearing her wedding dress. She looks great!!
This is a gigantic apple fritter that's well...almost as big as two heads. It's made right here in La Crosse WI by Mr. D's doughnuts. My history with Mr. D's Doughnuts goes way back to when my dad used to deliver doughnuts for them as a side job. I can't quite remember if he ever brought any doughnuts home, but I'm sure he did.
Then, when I was in college if we got hungry in the middle of the night...we just walked over to Mr. D's. They had a window open all night and early morning after the regular restaurant closed. you could go up to the guys baking inside and pay them 50 cents for a freshly made doughnut.
Then, a few years ago, the city had to widen the streets and so Mr. D's got downsized and turned into a doughnut/coffee shop. But they still make great doughnuts.
But you have to admit, it is quite large.
Well, thank you all for patiently waiting for this week's fantasy food. Now I'm off to getting some more awesome things done during this long weekend. My daughter also took a picture of me tonight that I may post tomorrow since it's a nice shot of my baby bump. We don't have any plans to leave town, but we do have a family gathering on Monday.
If you're going away or just relaxing at home this weekend, have a good one!
