Rob, you've been eating tooooo many Toroid holes. That's 1)-maple 2)-peanut butter. Maple syrup and ground peanuts. Only (1)-food group, Peanuts. Tree life is not in the 'food' group. Although maple frosting would seem to go good on a peanutbutter Torriod :!: :D :!:

I don't think peanut butter has aby butter in it. Peanuts have enough oil by themselves.

It's called peanutbutter because you can spread it like butter. Of course if one tries spreading plain ground peanuts, which is rather thick, It'll rip regular white bread to shreds!! Bystander, i don't think that there is "aby" butter in anything. :wink: :wink:

And then there's the goat butter. They'll 'butter' most anything! Especially the mean ornery ones :!: So don't turn your back on goats, or they may just 'butter' you up :!: :lol:

Butter Brickle Ice Cream. Had some last night.

The last few times I've been to Braum's, they've had plenty in stock.

I still don't understand this 3 pint thing. What happened to 1/2 gallons?

Alas, no, bottled extra stout. But since it was the last of the pack, and it was SO tasty with the fish and crackers, I decided it deserved a noble memorial on Asterisk*.

Dunkin Donuts vs. Krispy Kreme: It’s War on National Donut Day!
Forbes | iCelebrity | Mark Pasetsky | 2011 Jun 03
This post will make you hungry! Both Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme are trending this morning on Twitter and that’s not surprising.

The two national donut chains are offering free donuts in what is being called “National Donut Day,” which is also trending as a topic.

The donut makers are tapping into the power of social media to spread the word of this mouthwatering promotion.
Happy Holidays, Rob!

Thank you! Gotta run, but while I'm away from the computer you can check out the Wikipedia page about this revered holiday, wherein is mentioned a donut themed bicycle race. I believe we have some bicycle enthusiasts here in the Starship Asterisk*. Get to it!

Yeah, that race isn't done here; if it were, I'd be allll over it! And the doughnuts all over me, no doubt!

I did have a doughnut today, though...

Love Black Silk. For the summer time, I sometimes make it double strength served with sweetened condensed milk over ice. You can add a shot of your favorite whiskey or brandy if you like.

BTW - if'n ya ain't seen or heard, & you're a coffee lover, stock up now! Bad harvest now 3 years running -- prices have been going nuts, and it's not looking any better for the forseeable future.

I drink coffee all day! I drank it since I was 5 years old; so I won't quit now. We usually get the cheap generic brand; and it is still really high. I can remember 35 to 40 years ago that coffee went out of the roof on prices. Even today's prices are lower than back then. 8-)
