Happy Paczki Day

The Tuesday before Lent begins is Paczki day in our area. Since both Tom and I are Polish and love sweets, this is a holiday we celebrate.

We did limit ourselves to 2 paczki each. One has Bavarian creme in it.

The other has apple filling. Yum!!! Don't tell my Weight Watcher leader!

Ang lives in the Greenpoint area of Brooklyn. Her neighborhood is very Polish, however they celebrated Paczki Day last Thursday. Unfortunately because of the snow storm in NYC last week, Ang didn't get any paczki :(

I think we had this conversation last year about fastnact vs. paczki day. I have some dough in the fridge I was going to make into fastnacts yesterday but I didn't get the chance. It probably is still good. I should make them. My kids remember every year and ask me to make them but I don't really like making deep fried. We'll see.
