"In Poland, pączki are eaten especially on Fat Thursday (the last Thursday before Ash Wednesday). Many Polish Americans celebrate Pączki Day on Fat Tuesday (the day before Ash Wednesday). Traditionally, the reason for making pączki was to use up all the lard, sugar, eggs and fruit in the house, because they were forbidden to be consumed due to Catholic fasting practices during Lent."
Since I am like 50% Polish, I definitely celebrate Paczki day! Who doesn't love a good donut?? For Lent, I will pretty much be giving up sugar and fatty foods, except for the occasional treat. I am also going to make a point to be more dedicated to my workout.
On a side note, one of the bloggers that I follow, Suze, from Miss Vinyl Ahoy is having a giveaway! Make sure to check it out here!
