Doughnuts to enjoy before Lent

March 2, 2014
By PATTY CHRISTOPHER , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

This is the start of the third month of the year. Have you accomplished one-sixth of what you had planned for 2014? If you have, you are away ahead of me. We aren't the only ones off schedule. I just got a Christmas card from a magazine. And they have an entire office staff to keep them straight. As this is written, we don't know if March is coming in like a lion or a lamb, but I would guess it will be about as nasty as February has been. Anyway, as the year marches on, we know spring has to be here before too long. Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent is Wednesday. That means Shrove Tuesday and Doughnut Day is this week, too. Guess I'll have to make a few doughnuts. The big Mardi Gras parades are already taking place and will end at midnight Tuesday in New Orleans and Mobile, as well as other party places around the world. Carnival season is over. As chilly and nasty as it has been here in our valley, it is hard to imagine any kind of grand parades or wild parties being enjoyable.
