Fried Birthday Dough

Dear E --

Phew! I am still full from the delicious Chinese New Year dinner. I think my favorite part was the black bean spareribs. Nom! Happy Year of the Tiger!

Since you always make a birthday cake (pie, dessert) item for each of us and your birthday just passed, it is your turn for a special birthday dessert. When we asked what you would like, your answer was simply, "fried dough."

I thought about cannoli, cruellers, funnel cake, hand pies... none of which really felt inspired to me. Then I was falling asleep and the simple word "beignet" whispered in my ear.

There's Orange-Scented Beignet, Paula Deen's recipe, Emeril's recipe, Buttermilk Beignets, white chocolate and cardamon beignet and many others.

What do you think? Do beignets satisfy the fried dough birthday request?

As for actual dinner planning, I haven't done any of that yet. I am craving Thai and sushi...
