Just how much snow is a "Donut Snow"?

When Fall makes way for winter, and the frost makes the leafless trees beautiful once again, the discussion begins: how much snow does it take to qualify for a 'donut'  snow?

Will a light dusting do??  Hmmm...I don't think takes a snow doesn't have to be super thick, but there must be more white than green. Yes, the above photo qualifies!     
Actually we did not have this much when we had our 'first snow' treat...but it came soon after and makes everything so very wonderfully winter.

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow...though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."  Isaiah 1:18

So I thought that it would be fun to do a "Donut Post"...since we all enjoy this tradition so much, so I asked Reuben to take a photo of some donuts for me....always be careful what you ask a photographer to do!!  I thought a few donuts, a camera, a table to put them on, and we are good to go...but such was not the case.  I just had to take a few photos was so fun watching my simple 'donut photo' being taken...

First, you must begin collecting lights and background accessories.
(  :  Next, you must find a couple of willing...
.....Slaves!!!  : )
An adjustment here and there...
And let the photos begin!
"Just a little closer with the light...and now 1 more"

 A little editing and Voila!  A simple Doughnut photo!


And one more of Reuben's simple donut photos...these are 'Spudnuts' and we glazed them this year with about half maple glaze, and the other with a vanilla butter nut glaze.  They are so delicious...and are hard to beat when they are fresh and warm. Add a cup of hot cocoa,  a cozy fire...maybe a game, and you have a recipe for an enjoyable cold snowy night!  Thanks for the photos, Reuben!!!


  1. Lol. Life with a photographer is never boring! :)

  2. What a fun post! I think that's a great tradition and the donut pictures turned out great!

  3. You couldn't be convinced to share your recipe, could you? :)
