Did you know?
That today is the Doughnuts Birthday? On this day in 1847, 15-year-old Hansen Crockett Gregory invented the doughnut. The former sea captain was interviewed in his later years and said he couldn’t stand the uncooked centers of the fried cakes they made on board so he used a tin pepper can to cut a hole in the dough before frying. And it worked! Take off the entire day and indulge yourself! 😉
