I live in New Orleans and doing nothing.  Everything got cancelled, and that's fine with me.  Sometimes it's a bit much.

Basically a chili dog in a jelly doughnut.

Why would anybody call a pączki a jelly doughnut? Because they're a heretic, of course.

Because it's downtown detroit and anything that brings you one day closer to the sweet, sweet release of death is a gift.

I'll respect polish naming of jelly filled pastries just as soon as they start respecting phonics.

I'll be making pancakes of course. Not those monstrosities loaded with sugar and butter you call pancakes, actual ones.

100g flour
260 ml milk
One egg
Pinch salt

Mix, rest 20 mins then fry in hot lightly oiled pan. Serve by squeezing lemon wedge on top and a bit of sugar then rolling up.

You know... one hour ago, I saw this and thought it looked disgusting.
Now, it's almost noon, I'm getting hungry and think it actually seems fairly good.
I can only fear how I'd react if it was getting late on a drunken evening...

The same way I celebrate every Fat Tuesday.  By being Fat!

They know their clientele. It's part of a pair of "dueling" coney island restaurants downtown. Pre pandemic they were open 24 hours and it's not unusual to see a couple dozen drunk people in both places around 2am

I briefly spent some time in Detroit and the late night coney is awesome. The mixture of classic American diner, Greek restaurant, and hotdog stand is freaking awesome.

Too bad they didn't merge with the polish joints, then the food choice would be complete. It would  probably be too much to choose from and maybe it us best if you get your pierogis and cabbage rolls elsewhere.

Forgive them, they do not know what they do. They never had paczki from a real Polish bakery.

I had raspberry with powdered sugar. Normally I'd go for the Bavarian creme chocolate coated, this year I decided to be more traditional.

Likewise. I had planned to go out with my N95 and soak up the high spirits, lack of parades be damned. But then this weather hit and I decided to spend the day in my warm apt. and celebrate with video calls.

It's the first Mardis Gras of my life when I've not been a VERY active participant. And I haz a sad.

My wife made paczkis from scratch.

Yes they are good.  Strawberry, raspberry, cream filled.
