It’s Fat Thursday here in Poland – just like Fat Tuesday in the USA, but it’s on Thursday. Something missed in translation? Perhaps. But OMG the lines of people waiting for a Pączki is just unbelievable. Of course, I had no idea it was “Fat Thursday” today until I went to the market and saw a special booth full of these yummy doughnuts.
Traditionally, Polish people meet in their homes or cafés with their friends and relatives and eat large quantities of sweets, cakes and other meals forbidden during Lent. This is my kinda country!
If you’re wondering… umm…of course I bought some! I also bought some tulips today and thought these two beauties warranted a photo together 🙂 Perfection.
