Desktop Dining: Doughnuts and Gianduia

Ever have one of those days when you’ve just recovered from something gruesome, you’re back at work, the air-conditioning’s on polar and you don’t really feel like eating the usual "rice-meat-and-veg" sort of meal?

I do. (And I apologize for the shoddy past couple of posts; the flu – no, not the AH1N1! – is bad at this time of year.)

That, said, it’s time to pack a snack I could nibble on at my desk along with a mug of creamy lavender milk tea. For today, it’s homemade doughnuts and a small [almost gone anyway] cup of Finetti gianduia. Unlike my regular doughnut recipe, this one has plain milk rather than buttermilk and is flavored with cinnamon and nutmeg as well as the usual vanilla. That said, it’s just plain darned moreish on its own but becomes even more of a treat with dab upon dab of the choc-hazelnut spread.

Now, if only I could get my officemates to just back off and keep their paws off my lunch!
