Paczki Day is like a holiday!

 It's the last day to party before Lent begins, otherwise known as Fat Tuesday.   
Bakeries in our area began taking orders for Paczki's (pronunced pohnch-kee)  weeks ago and there are literally lines out the doors and down the streets this morning to pick up these delicious treats.  

Fried or baked rounds of dough filled with apricot, strawberry, prune, raspberry, lemon, Nutella, custard, chocolate or sweet cheese, then sprinkled with powdered sugar. Who wouldn't love this rich dough made with eggs and butter?  

These gems are best enjoyed the day they are baked with your favorite coffee or tea. 

~Thanks Fat Tuesday...I'll get back to healthy eating tomorrow~
