I hope everyone is enjoying their Fat Tuesday with delicious Creole treats!
It’s 10 am & I could already go for a big ole bowl of jambalaya!

In honor of Mardi Gras, here in the Midwest we celebrate Pączki (pronounced poonchkie) Day!


If you don’t know what a pączki is, it’s like a Polish doughnut filled with cream or jelly. Okay it’s literally a jelly doughnut  but it’s a reallllyyyy big deal here.

And I’ve never had one! I’m not a huge jelly doughnut girl, so I’ve been avoiding this day for as long as I can remember.

But this all changes today.

I got the strawberry pączki & the first thing I noticed is how messy it is, my hand/pants/my hair somehow.

I decided to tear it open instead of bite right into it & there was strawberry jelly EVERYWHERE.

My desk looked like that scene in Carrie when she got that bucket of blood spilled on her head.

Okay so…

I don’t think I like them.

I can’t get into all that jelly! But I loved the doughnut once I scraped it all out.

So maybe I kinda do? Idk.

Either way, I hope everyone has a great Fat Tuesday!

Make sure you tweet pictures of your Mardi Gras day treats to @SnaxNTheCity_!
