I’ll be sharing lots of health-and-wellness tips in future blog posts. This, however, is certainly not one of those days. Today — because it’s Fat Tuesday — one of the picklers brought in Paczkis while we were playing pickleball at Woodside.
For those of you unfamiliar with southeast Michigan, Fat Tuesday is a BIG deal in the Detroit area. It looks like I’ll have to play lots of pickleball today to work off the calories… and there are lots of calories — 300 – 450 to be exact!!! Yum!!! 🙂
VisitDetroit.com describes Fat Tuesday this way:
This year, Feb. 17 is Fat Tuesday, the last day before the season of Lent where many Christians refrain from indulgent treats. For Detroiters it’s better known as Paczki Day, when local bakeries serve up dozens of traditional Polish pastries as a last chance to enjoy a sweet treat.
