All hail this day of gluttony, otherwise known as Paczki Day here in the Motor City. 

The Polish tradition of Fat Tuesday, carried over to this side of the pond by Poles who settled on the east side and in Hamtramck, stems from families who rushed to rid their homes of baked goods ahead of Lenten season. Most people refer to them as jelly doughnuts but they are so much more. (And please, please don’t forget that paczek is the singular and paczki is plural.)
