Why It's Called "Fat Tuesday"
Back in Southeast Michigan, today is Pączki Day. The long-time Polish community in Hamtramck section of Detroit has made its cultural tradition a regional gastro-phenomenon.
A pączki (pronounced poonch-key) is basically a big-ass doughnut of the gods. And as you may know, nobody likes doughnuts more than me.
My mouth is seriously wishing we were in Ann Arbor today. Perhaps Mrs F will attempt some homemade pączki?...One can dream...
