It's Fat Tuesday.

Have you ever been to New Orleans for Mardi Gras??


Does your town celebrate their own Mardi Gras?

That's because none of you are Polish.

My Dad was born and raised in New Orleans, not far from Bourbon street. I always wanted to go to Mardi Gras and he said I couldn't go unless I went with a local relative which of course didn't appeal to me;) I went for Halloween to celebrate my birthday and that was a blast.

Several bars had parties and I used to go back in the day...this year I was at hockey;) But I did have a piece of Kings cake someone brought in.

up until coming here, I'd never heard of a paczki, let alone see one or taste one.

I hope your week is looking up Daisy.

I guess I've been living under a rock.... or I knew it but totally forgot about it.... I had no idea that "Mardi Gras" litterally means "Fat Tuesday".... I had heard both terms but never put 2+2 together that the term "mardi gras" translates to "fat tuesday".... weird....

Paczki's were everywhere here too, Renee.....

No real celebrations around here that I know of- just lots of paczkis in the stores- I had a bite of one yesterday..

Have wanted to go to New Orleans- but as I get older not really so much anymore..

Thanks Missy !
