No Such Thing as a Free Breakfast...

Lately, I've been sick. And by lately, I mean since before Christmas. I haven't been posting much 'cause we haven't been doing much. Just laying around the house trying to get healthy.
Rock has been sick for a lot of that time as well; hence his wiping snot off his face in the picture above. Last Wednesday, Rock and I reached a breaking point so I decided to get out of the house and do a drive thru breakfast (thus containing our sickness to our vehicle).
The best part was, we had these two coupons so we could eat a free breakfast! One free donut from Dunkin Donuts and one free chicken biscuit from Chick-Fil-A. What more could we want?
Well, we wanted drinks. So I brought those from home. Not free, but we didn't buy them that morning so they felt free.
And we were already hungry before we left so I grabbed a clementine for each of us. Again, not exactly free, but by adding fresh fruit we made this a nutritious breakfast... right?
I'd never had Chick-Fil-A breakfast before and let me tell you, this puppy was good. And Rock didn't like it so I got to eat the whole thing! I took this picture at a stoplight and ate the rest of it before I got to the next stoplight so this is all you get.
Then, at Dunkin Donuts I broke down. Our coupon was for one free donut. But I asked for two. Hey, I'm 7.5 months pregnant and I can't find a single carb that I don't adore so I paid the 89 cents and went for it. However, I immediately learned my lesson. I requested a chocolate frosted** and I got this sprinkled thing. Should have stuck to our free breakfast plan.
Rock requested a "color donut" and that's what he got. When asked, he said it tasted like candy and he was right. I hope we're healthy again soon so we can do more interesting things.
** Apparently, Dunkin Donuts discontinued the peanut donut?! So sad!

WHAT?! I loooooove the peanut donut!! I hope that Dunkin Donuts was just deficient - giving you a sprinkled thing when you wanted chocolate and such.

Dang it! Now you've got me CRAVING a Dunkin Donuts!!! Fortunately, the one down the street from us always has stale donuts so I'm not usually tempted to go there.
By the way, vanilla with sprinkles is a Hathaway favorite (only to be topped by Bavarian Creme or Vanilla Creme) But I AM sorry that you didn't get your chocolate frosted. :(

p.s. Nick got a peanut donut just a few months ago from there. Could it be that just THAT DD had d/c'd it?! ....just trying to give you and Zuni hope! ;)
