Well, I am not even going to THINK about paczki!!! Don't plan to buy any. I was thinking of maybe doing the pancake day tradition to celebrate Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday/Shrove Day/Pancake Day. There are a ton of diet friendly pancake recipes out there so I figure I can celebrate the day sensibly.
Haven't figured out the rest of the day's menu yet...maybe a gumbo for dinner.
All I can say is STEP AWAY FROM THE PACZKI!!!
Too many empty calories/sugars.
