Happy Fat Tuesday! For me, Fat Tuesday is all about the packzi's. Getting that last bit of sugar and grease before the start of lent. What's a packzi? It's a lot like a jelly donut- only heavier, denser, lard and fruit filled nugget of goodness. They come in many wonderful flavors- raspberry, blueberry, lemon, apple, cream, prune (don't laugh- it's delicious,) my personal favorite is apricot and for the bores -(like my middle one) Plain. They are only around for a short time- so enjoy them while you can.
For a fun filled tour of making and explaining the packzi phenomenon-check this out. Otherwise enjoy this view-
