Yesterday was Fat Tuesday aka Mardi Gras or known by some as Paczki Day. This was a real big deal back in Hamtramck and I was determined this year to get some real Polish style Paczki.
After doing some research online, I found a few Polish restaurants but none of them were making Paczki. I read one post that claimed that next door to this Polish church you could buy the real stuff. Hopped in the car and tracked down the address.
Nothing at the church, but the goods were supposed to be next door at the retirement home. After some snooping around, I found the entrance.
I made my way inside. From all the art on the walls I knew I was in the right place.
Some older gentleman appeared and after a short conversation he led me to the kitchen where we exchanged $9 for half dozen Paczki. Back at home, the feast began.
So good. Just like I remembered.
