I totally did not know it was National Doughnut Day on June 5th (today), when I posted my Triple Chocolate Doughnut recipe last week! Finally I was ahead of the game with these foodie holidays! So I urge you to make either these Gingerbread Doughnuts or the Triple Chocolate right now! (And did you catch a sneak-peek at my new doughnut recipe, coming to a blog near you…soon!)
Besides doughnut baking, I’ve been crazy in the kitchen all week. I consider it my birthday gift to myself too, just living out the joy! That’s right, my birthday is tomorrow! Hello 19! I really don’t plan on doing anything though and just want my usual slow Saturday. Good news is that the weather is forecasted to be perfect! 80 degrees and sunny. I hope to go on a walk and breath, feeling the ground under my feet. That would be nice. Plus some pancakes and my longest day of yoga practice as usual. I’ll make it a good day this year for sure!
Anyway, here’s this week’s finisher (packed as usual), but full of goodness to keep you not bored all weekend long! Keep these Friday Finishers bookmarked to refer back to anytime you get a free moment or two to catch up on some good reads!

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ I finished Breaking Bad on Netflix, was totally not impressed with the ending…Why did everyone like it so much? So now I started Prison Break on Netflix! I had seen the first season and some of the second when it originally aired years ago, but due to my dance schedule, I was never home at night to watch it. So for years I’ve been dying to see it again, the whole thing this time. Such a killer show!
+ I went on my longest driving journey this week, didn’t get lost (woohoo!), driving is like riding a bike, it does come back!
So tell me:
+ How will you be celebrating National Doughnut Day? The new recipe I made has been my breakfast yesterday and today 😉
+ Watching any good TV series on Netflix? On Wednesday while I was in the kitchen ALL day cooking, I had Prison Break on which was playing on my laptop on the counter. It was a nice little “work” set up!
