It’s Tuesday – and it’s a big day! It’s Paczki Day! Also known as Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Tuesday, and Mardi Gras- it’s the day before Lent begins – and it’s a day to party. And eat paczki. For my non-Polish readers, paczki (pronounced POONCH-key) are Polish donuts. Yummy, tasty donuts – often filled with jelly. My human was actually able to find some “authentic” paczki at the grocery store – and somehow they are already gone. She claims her grandmother made THE best paczki on the planet. Clearly my human didn’t get the baking gene.
Although we canines could certainly SAMPLE a bit of human paczki, it’s probably best if we have our own. I found a couple of videos. The first goes through all the steps to making dog donuts. And they are pretty fancy:
But then I found this one, which is probably more my human’s style. Fast:
The fancy, detailed creations are lovely. But in our house, they would last all of 3.8 seconds. At least when it comes to us PONs. They would be gone before the icing was set. So why bother making the detailed version? Between us PON vacuum cleaners and the Picard who would just stare at them (and then probably just toss them around) there really is no point in making fancy versions. Just give us a hunk of dough.
Anyway, tomorrow begins Lent – when some humans basically re-institute their New Year’s resolutions. They give up something and pledge to do good works until Easter. This is my human’s second chance to eat better and get in good shape. Cranky days ahead – but more walks for us!!!!
Have a good one. Peace and paws up!
