Yesterday was one of my favorite days of the year. I love all holidays that focus on eating and Fat Tuesday is the king of all gluttonous celebrations. No matter which version of the holiday you observe, it’s all about eating some sort of fatty sweet bread and celebrating. I was lucky enough to enjoy both paczkis and king cake yesterday, as well as some amazing gumbo.
I picked up paczkis at Dinkel’s in Lakeview. What a cute 1950s looking bakery! I love their pink and brown color scheme. I recommend the raspberry lemon. But I have to admit that nothing in Chicago tastes as amazing as the paczkis you get in Hamtramck.
