Have You Had Your Doughnut Today?

WHAT WAISTLINE? HAVE ANOTHER!: All over Poland today, people are stuffing themselves with donuts. "How many have you had?" is the question of the day. Me? Just one (the one pictured).This day of mass donut sale and consumption is called Fat Thursday, or Tlusty Czwartek in Polish. In the United States, Polish Americans observe the day on Fat Tuesday. But for Poles in Poland, the day rooted in Christian tradition comes on the Thursday before Ash Wednesday. Diets out the window, the idea is to eat as many paczki - pronounced pounchki - as your stomach can handle.

No telling how many of the faithful confess this one of the seven deadly sins come Friday. 🙂
