Today is Fat Tuesday, also called Paczki Day, when Polish people have Paczki, deep-fat fried dough with fillings and glazes. And good for you. They are best acquired by the dozen, so you don’t run out.
This word Paczki is pronounced various ways, but “poonch-kee” will probably do the trick at the bakery. If not, have a jelly donut, in the spirit of the celebration.
