On our trip to Arizona, we were able to do so many fun things. One of the things that was at the top of my list was to make Mashed Potato Doughnuts with my Aunt, Snowflake and Pumpkin.
When I was young, my Aunt and Uncle did so many fun things with myself and my brother. I have many good memories of all the things we did with them. One of those things was my making potato doughnuts with my Aunt. I remember having fun making them and of course they were delicious to eat!
We managed to find some time to make doughnuts with my Aunt on our trip. I am so glad we did. It was a fun experience with Snowflake, Pumpkin, myself and my Aunt. It was interesting to make them as an adult and have that perspective as well.
