Fat Tuesday Paczkis



Fat Tuesday is here and once again we had paczkis brought to our office from one of my favorite vendors. These treats are a friendly reminder to indulge in sweets and "fatty" foods as we are on the eve of giving up something for lent. Well, what is a paczki anyway? These are large donuts made from a sweet delicious yeast dough and are usually stuffed with jellies, custard, and sometimes even a chocolate cream. The outside is often coated with confectioner's sugar. Each paczki packs close to 500 calories so the idea is to eat 2 or three of them to go out with a bang. This will curb the desire to eat sweets or snack over the next few days as lent season commences.......yeah right.
