In Lemon Chalets, chocolate and peanut butter Tagalongs, Thin Mints, and buttery Shortbread. Tis the season for Girl Scout cookies and a sure sign that spring is inching closer!
What's your favorite Girl Scount cookie?
Yesterday was a sunshine day, one of those days that just brings smiles to faces as snow ebbs away like a low tide. And then, there are yellow come orange tulips...
"And do not wilt so much as faint."
May you find a bit of spring on this March day.
I almost forgot...today is Fat Tuesday! Have you had your paczki today?
Not sure what paczki is? First, it's pronounced 'punch-key' and it's a sinfully delicious fried dough filled with jams, jellies, or creams brought to the US by Polish immigrants. There are strong Polish populations in midwest cities like Chicago, Detroit, and the one closest to me, Toledo. The treat has spread across the countryside until every small town with a bakery offers freshly fried paczki on Fat Tuesday and the days leading up to the feast before lent. If you want just one order a paczek pronounced, 'pon-chek.'
