Fat Tuesday is tomorrow(2/13/18) and the best way to celebrate is with a good paczki.

Pat's Donuts and Kreme are preparing the Polish dessert for the holiday and they will have whipped up 300 dozen paczki by Monday night. The owner of Pat's said Monday evening is when it begins to get busy and Tuesday morning is when chaos breaks loose as orders will start to flood in. The tasty treat takes a couple of hours to make, but they will continue making them throughout Tuesday as needed.  The tradition comes from, before fasting on Ash Wednesday, all baking ingredients in the house must be used up thus paczki became a last hurrah.

"It's just fun to put smiles on people's faces because they get excited about these," said Michelle Ezzelly, owner of Pat's Donuts and Kreme. "It's right before the Lent season so they get to splurge a little bit, before they have to give something up for the Lent season."
