Happy Fat Tuesday. Being Catholic and married to a beautiful Polish girl, I have learned all about the tradition of the Paczki.
A delicious jelly filled pastry that you don't dare call a donut. In Hamtramck, Michigan, a Detroit neighborhood, people wake up very early to get these fat laden 400 calorie treats. But you have to eat them today! After all it's Fat Tuesday and the season of Lent starts with Ash Wednesday tomorrow.
After eating one, it's easy to decide what to give up until Easter!
