I understand that the significance behind Fat Tuesday is to eat all you want, and especially those foods or vices you are giving up for Lent the next day. What Fat Tuesday means to me is that I get to eat a Paczki every year. It sure is worth the wait! A paczki is a traditional Polish pastry like a giant donut filled with cream or fruit jelly. YUM! Sorry Kitty, no paczki for you!
