When I saw donut pans I tried to contain myself and had a stern talk with myself (“Chris you DO NOT need donut pans! You have too much stuff and they will only add to the clutter. You DO NOT need to make donuts, you are trying to eat healthy. Chris, are you listening? Chris, you DO NOT NEED THEM”). I didn’t listen. Instead I put them on my Christmas list. My daughter (and her boyfriend) thought it was a great idea, they NEED donuts for breakfast! So I got the pans and people begging for donuts.
