Are You Ready for FAT Tuesday ? Mmmmm

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

  Tomorrow is FAT Tuesday...yes,  yes we know that there are those of you who  "fear fat"....have been there/done that and won't join in this Lenten Pazckipreparation as a result.  FAT Tuesday is a pre-lenten presentation that celebrated by many Christians who enjoy diving into "sweet treats" before they begin the lenten season with the absence of such food.

     Throughout southeastern Wisconsin, it is very common for people to celebrate this day indulgiing with a  PaczkiThis is prounced nothing like it looks. 

It is pronounced POONSH KEY....and is a deep fried dough that has a feeliing often of either 

raspberry or prune filling.....a Cousin to a jelly doughnut....and diet or not, really, who can't LOVE a jelly doughnut ?

         The tradition began with this sweet yeast dough delicacy as a way to use up the sugar, eggs, fat, flour that 

would be use very sparsely during lent.  They are often heavily dusted with sugar...powdered or granulated and we

see in some parts of the country where bakeries have added other fillings and frostings from bacon to creams. Trying 

them all iikely to mean a HUGE fast/diet well beyond lent ! Depending upon size (yes size matters !), filling, topping etc.

you may expect to "gain" 700 calories  from just one paczki and 20-30 grams of fat. But's once a year, right ?

     Bakeries everywhere have begun their preparation for the onslaught of customers that choose to sweetly 

celerate this day.  One of the best known bakeries in our area for this seasonally delicious treat Is  National Bakery
P day shirtThe lines of customers beginning at "dark o'thirty" at their locations around Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties which have 

now expanded to four and began on South 16th Street. Click here to find out where the line will be forming closest to you.

They open at 6:30 am...but but but....we advise tomorrow getting there long before then or be prepared to take a "Doughnut

Day" while you wait in line.  Yes indeed...and Wisconsinites also have a way of "dressing the part" should see Packer 

 Sundays !  If you can also get this lovely PURPLE Tee....Yaah National really DO know what's

  Best !

     Spend your Calories wisely.....and Enjoy only go around once...why not celebrate the day with this special treat !

           If you are looking for a special treat in southeastern Wisconsin real MUST call Sally & David Hanson,

honored to be of assistance for all things real estate !

I'm with Barbara.  I haven't had sugar in three years (as you know) so I doubt these would be on my menu.

Have a little fun and bet you can't eat just one Sally K. & David L. Hanson ! This hunger attack brought to you by the Paczki Foundation. Because we all know, it is gospel that a little ole real estate professional can not list, twist and sell on an empty stomach. Our local Episcopal church has a Fat Tuesday pancake, sausage, baked beans supper to mark the event.

Good morning Sally and David.  I used to enjoy something very similar that my Hungarian Mother would make.  Loosely translated into English it would be called Plum Dumplings.

Hello Sally K. & David L. Hanson, I try to blog my mom recipe for Fastnacht this morning but it only got the title and the last line of the blog.  Yes it was 381 words, maybe to long. But I am making them tonight for friends.
