Sometimes, after a hard week's work, there is nothing you'd rather do than get up, pull on some shorts, and sit in the sun and eat donuts. And sometimes, so long as it's not every day, I for one believe that we should listen to this yearning, put on those shorts and go get some donuts. I have found that the best way to quiet this desire is to find and consume the best possible donuts (and therefore the most satisfying). Now, people have brought me to fancy shmancy donut shops before, and while they were good, they weren't great, and definitely no match for my favorite donut shop of all time: Stan's Donuts in Santa Clara. I cannot think of a more un-fancy place than Stan's, but the way they fry up their dough, it couldn't matter less. In two words, their donuts are mind-blowing. The ones to order which will knock your socks off (they knock mine off all the time) are the plain glazed donuts. I know some of you may be thinking, "But what about the apple fritter? That one's my favorite!" but I would advise you not to lose focus. Order the plain glazed and prepare yourself for the perfectly crisp exterior and deep, doughy interior which sometimes reminds me of the joy of falling into a soft, welcoming bed at the end of a long, tiring day.
