Ever Hear of Paczki Day??

Having spent a number of years on the planet, I learned something today thay I had not heard about before--
PACZKI DAY!
It is apparently celebrated big time in the Detroit area and other areas with a heavy Polish population.
It's the Polish version of Fat Tuesday, AKA Mardi Gras and Shrove Tuesday!
Mardi Gras has King Cake, Shrove Tuesday has Pancakes and Paczki Day has JELLY/CREAM Filled Donuts!
We saw an ad from a local food chain offering these one-day-only delights, so off we went to see what it was all about. The store was busy with people grabbing up boxes of these Donut Delights. We got Raspberry & Lemon filled. They're good!
Here's the story:
