Fat Tuesday

Happy Fat Tuesday or as we say in southeast Michigan - Paczki Day!  As I was researching Paczki Day a little more, which I thought was a southeast Michigan tradition, I learned that there are some other places in the midwest that also indulge in this Polish treat.  For those of you who are not familiar with the paczki, it's a heavy doughnut that's usually filled with a fruit filling.  The calorie laden sweet is only available during this time of year, right before Lent.  I love a good doughnut, so I love this day.  Do you celebrate Fat Tuesday?  How do you do it in your neck of the woods?


  1. I live in southeast Michigan and just experienced Paczki day for the first time. YUM!!!

    Recently just came across your blog and just wanted to let you guys know I love it!! Can't wait to read more!

  2. Hi Chelsea! They are yummy. It's a good thing for me that they are only around for a short period of time or I would have to buy bigger pants.

    You're so sweet! I'm so glad you found us and enjoy the blog. Woo hoo for Michigan!
