Last call for paczki! Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday, and while I love a holiday celebration, it always felt weird for me to eat Cajun food and King Cake, having no connection to New Orleans. But having Polish friends and relatives is all the justification I need to indulge in the delicious jelly-filled pastries. They are now available in grocery stores and bakeries around the country, even here in the Southern US. I’m picking up my order this morning, raspberry and lemon, and will try to hold out until tomorrow to eat them. Get them while you can before they disappear for another year. Do you have any pre-Lenten traditions – gumbo, pancakes, paczki?
