I've been thinking abut a trip up the road to Ft. Branch every since Kim Parrish let me know about the Donut Depot. She heard my plea to find the chocolate icing like we used to get at the Windmill Bakery. She says it's even better than it used to be. Donut Depot did come in a very close second in our official doughnut poll.

You might remember that I looked everywhere for beignets, after my Christmas trip to Disney. We stayed at the Port Orleans Riverside Resort, and that's where they hide the Mickey Beignets. I had no luck finding anything like that, not even around Mardi Gras. Well, it looks like both of my food wishes could come true Saturday.

The Brickhouse Boutique in Ft. Branch is having a grand opening event, and guess what? They have a food truck coming in from Illinois that has beignets! Two Farmers Burgers and Beignets features Smashburgers and Beignets.  The food trailer is based in Mt. Carmel. I can't believe how close those yummy powdered sugar dough delicacies have been this whole time.

Now, here's the big question: Do I dare make the trip and try both the Donut Depot and Two Farmers Burgers and Beignets? It seems like a waste of gas if I don't. Maybe I'll see you there!
