  • Fat Tuesday yahoo
  • Don't forget to buy or order your Paczki (Punchkey). I will go to a bakery about 10 miles from home tomorrow to order 6: 2 custard, 2 raspberry, 1 blueberry and 1 cream.
    Really, these are very decadent overfilled donuts. I will be at the bake shop at 6 am on Tuesday to pick them up. I expect a long line. Is this politically incorrect? Anyone offended? TOUGH! LOL

  • Yep, never understood the big deal- they are just donuts with a lot more sugar. If you are diabetic, best to avoid them. Heck I was seeing them in boxes in the stores back in January. But enjoy if you must...

  • A lot of people gave up sweets (or desserts) for Lent, which starts tomorrow, Wednesday, February 6, 2019. Many family traditions celebrated the start of Lent with kind of a "last supper" with sweets, often fruit, from the pantry, filled convections. A GREAT Paczki makes "donuts with a lot more sugar" taste like a bland piece of bread.
    That is my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

  • Hope you were far away from New Orleans on Tuesday. All those paczkis and beer make for vomit soaked streets and sidewalks on Bourbon St.

  • Fortunately, I doubt that New Orleans even knows what a Paczki is let alone be able to buy any there. We were there in 1979 when the police were on strike. The parade was cancelled and we had to attend one inside an arena. Frankie Avalon was the Grand Marshal. Nope, Annette was not there (darn). One fantastic lady.

  • It's not just the sugar -I was diabetic up til 4 years ago -it's all that heavy lard sitting in your gut. I quit donuts 25 years ago. just saying the sugary filling plus all the sugar coating on top -not for everyone. To each his own...

  • Around Easter time My Mother would make what she called Fastnat kriekels.
    They were more like a fried dough and boy were they good.
    She kept all of her recipes in her head and didn't write them down. (Darn)

  • I just got my blood sugar back down to a normal reading John so I'll have to pass on eating any sweets for a time; (order 8 and eat for me, ha!).

    BTW, you left Texas too soon as tomorrow, we're supposed to have some of the type weather you and Tim Daley have up there in MI - yep, supposedly it'll get down into the twenties for a few hours - no snow or ice is predicted however. Sad here for all the plants, trees, etc. are really blooming.

  • As typical as it is in Texas John, yesterday I wore jeans, undershirt covered by a flannel long sleeve shirt and a warm jacket outside even though the sun was shining brightly. This morning I attended a funeral service wearing typical go to church clothing with slacks and a nice sports coat - had to shed and leave the coat in the truck 'cause it was so warm. Now back at the house, I'm very comfortable outside and in doors in my shorts and tee shirt - oh, and it's overcast with light showers here today! I swear that we here can go through all four seasons easily in a couple of days time, ha!

  • I'll give my aide $20 and ask her to pick up a herd of them on her way in tomorrow morning. Thanks for reminding me.
