Fat Tuesday is the last day of Mardi Gras and since Lent begins on Ash Wednesday people like to clean out their kitchens of all the fatty foods they are giving up for Lent. Many people decide to give up items like butter, flour, sugar, etc. All the good stuff! And what can you make with all of the above items? You got it!
In Poland, it's paczki, Germany calls them berliners, and In Austria they are krapfen, but they are all donuts to me!
I got my local paczkis from, believe it our not, the Walmart(www.www.walmart.com.com) at 409N Fruitland Blvd in Fruitland, MD 21826. This store only stocks paczkis for Fat Tuesday, but they make their own donuts all year round. Pretty good ones too! Give the bakery a call at 410-341-4803 to see what is fresh.
Hope you had a great Fat Tuesday!
