Beer Apple Fritters with Vanilla Maple Glaze

Beer Apple Fritters with Vanilla Maple Glaze

Is it just me or are we all hypochondriacs right now? Was that sneeze allergies or a deadly virus? Is the house too hot or do I have a deadly virus? Did I eat something weird or do I have a deadly virus? It’s nonstop. 

But on the upside, pajamas all day and making doughnuts for no reason are perfectly acceptable. As is eating them by yourself in the kitchen while taking a Buzzfeed quiz about which Tiger King character you are. It’s Saff, by the way. 

We’ve lost all of our manners and basic social skills, but at least we’ve done it together. Once we reemerge we will all be slightly chubby toddlers who have to re-learn how to interact. I’m very excited for the day when I have the ability to lick your face again. Not that I’ll do, but I’m looking forward for the day when it’s no longer seen as a terrorist act. 

Until then, I made you doughnuts from afar.
