That's more than a dip for you. You're drowning it. Looks yummy.

Potato vodka is also gluten free. Give it a try.

Delicious? I'd be tempted to go with "holy!"

One Christmas, my folks sent me a box of chocolate-covered Mike-Sells* potato chips. Delicious, if a little weird.

*Mike-Sells is a Midwestern brand common where I grew up. If you're curious, look here.

"Delicious" in moderation

A nice benefit of low carb, is when you occasionally don't!

A gold mine of Richard Epstein podcasts (audio starts automatically but the list below is valuable) at Heritage. Apparently weekly or so.

First McDonald's and now chocolate-dipped potato donuts. I worry for the health of Meadehouse.

There used to be a "Spudnuts" doughnut chain in the Midwest, with potato flour glazed doughnuts. Yum.
Those cake doughnuts you're eating, Professor, need to be dunked in something to choke them down. My sympathies.

So now you're celebrating St. Joseph's day? I didn't realize you had Italian in you!

(It's traditional to take a break from Lent and engage in donut-eating to celebrate the solemnity.)

Catholics- Fast hard, Feast hard.

Meande, did Althouse just "double-dip" the doughnut?

"From now on, just take one dip and end it!"

That's exactly what we're doing. It's fun... and easy. Hard to do low carb while eating out. It's just stupid, actually.

Actually, I sense some tension, or confliction, in the photo.

There used to be a donut shop in Ames, IA that made donuts using potato flour. The place was called Spud Nuts and it was a favorite gathering place for early morning drunks just getting in from a night of drinking. It was also a popular spot to "carb up" before taking an extended bike ride. The only problem with the donuts was the donuts had a very short shelf life. The donuts were delicious, right out of the fryer. However, if you got a donut that was more than 10 or 15 minutes old, it tended to be a bit soggy and not as tasty.

In the 40s & 50s there was a Spudnut shop in Madison just off the corner of Johnson and State St. I'd stop there every morning before walking over to school (Holy Redeemer, and I'd have to choose between eating them or taking Communion at morning Mass. Spudnuts pretty much always won that religious war.

The restaurant is The Kitchen, our favorite Boulder restaurant.

For breakfast, we like Snooze.

Spudnuts is alive and well.
