The Tuesday before Lent the time to indulge or Fatten up before tightening belts and giving up things for Lent, which starts on Ash Wednesday. It is the Fat Tuesday associated with Mardi Gras and it is the Shrove Tuesday associated with Pancake Suppers or Pancake Day.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, February 13th is also Paczki Day, a Polish tradition of making and eating Paczki the day before Lent starts.
The best place to get Paczki in Silver Spring, is at the Woodmoor Bakery/Pastry Shop in the Woodmoor Shopping Center at Four Corners. They make the most divine, decadent Paczki anywhere in the area. They are the filled, rolled in powdered sugar type paczki and they are GOOD.
Here’s Hoping the Paczki are plentiful, there is no long line and they don’t run out!
