I have to say our August “date night” has probably been our most creative one yet.
We took advantage of a Living Social deal and took a cooking class together where we made doughnuts. Technically it was Tommy’s turn to pick our date activity but when I saw this deal I knew it would be perfect since Tommy LOVES doughnuts. So I casually sent him the link and he bought tickets for us and found a date on the calendar that worked!
Now it was time to make our glazes and flavors! We had the option of making three different kinds of doughnuts: Cinnamon Sugar, Boston Cream and Original Glaze.
Once we had our flavors all made we divided our cooked (fried) doughnuts equally into small groups and got busy rolling some in the cinnamon sugar mixture, squirting the cream into a tiny hole we made in the doughnut and rolling one side of the doughnut in chocolate for other group, and dipping the rest of the doughnuts in the glaze for the remaining doughnuts.
NOTE: I wasn’t able to take any pictures of us frying the doughnuts in a pan with oil because we had to time each doughnut in the oil for 40 seconds each so I was too busy manning my stopwatch!
This cooking class lasted about 2 hours and was held in the Living Social office in Penn Quarter. We had so much fun cooking together. It was very easy to follow along step-by-step instructions from the instructors – the owners of District Doughnut. We’d definitely do another cooking class through Living Social again. We both highly recommend taking this class.
