Happy Fat Tuesday! Go Eat Paczki!
0 0

Today is the day that I really like to celebrate my Polish heritage, and why?

It's FAT TUESDAY FOLKS! The day where local bakeries make delicious Paczki! Now, what the hell is a Paczki right?

It's basically a donut, but a donut made just a little differently. Similar to a Bismark that you would get on a normal day. A Paczki is a donut (kind of) that is filled with a fruit like strawberry, lemon, apple, prune, etc. Traditionally they are coated with sugar, glazed, or just plain. But man, do they pack the calories!

So what is Fat Tuesday? The internet describes it best...

The day before Ash Wednesday. It is also known as Mardi Gras Day or Shrove Day. It is a day when people eat all they want of everything and anything they want as the following day is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of a long fasting period for Christians.

I'm not a very good christian, but damn am I good polish man. Get out and eat some Paczki!
