This Moment (VII)

Just stopping by to share a "moment" from this week, inspired by Soule Mama. In her words,
"{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember."

A Texas Theater

This past weekend found us in San Angelo, Texas. We went there for a family function and didn't have time to do much else, but I did manage to snap a few photos of this old (and unfortunately closed down) movie theater in downtown San Angelo.



I'd like to do a whole photo series of local signs. There are quite a few I like around town (Austin) that I've already been trying to keep on a mental list. Things are always changing, especially here in Austin, and once something is torn down and replaced by something completely different I often find it difficult to remember exactly what that space used to look like, and wish I had a photograph of it.

Donut Squares

I don't usually go for boxed mixes, but this one caught my eye the other day and I couldn't resist.

All you have to add is water, so these were super simple to make. Then you roll out the dough and cut it into squares.

Then fry the squares in oil. I don't remember what kind the recipe calls for, but we used coconut oil and quite a bit less than the recommended amount, which worked fine.

And, finally, top with powdered sugar. The dough itself was not as sweet as I expected, so I really doused them. I also added cinnamon.

They came out pretty tasty, but I'd like to try my own recipe. My mom ate some and, assuming they were made from scratch, unwittingly declared them "way better than those ones we had in New Orleans" (at Cafe Du Monde). Ha!
