Good Morning all
Up early to go to PT early today. My DH is sick with a bad cold and he has a dentist and eye Dr. appt, which he will have to cancel.
Today is Fat Tuesday, Happy Mardi Gras. Making gumbo and sausages for dinner.
My mom and sister may come by for a visit this afternoon, and I have a craft night to attend tonight so a busy day.
Hope everyone has a great one
Linda

GOOD MORNING LINDA AND ALL FRIENDS THAT STOP IN...I'm going out the door in just a few minutes. I didn't even have time to look for a cute graphic to put here this morning. I've got a lot planned for today, starting with breakfast at Cracker Barrel...Yum-O !! Going to go see Mom today and then shopping this afternoon and home to fix dinner...probably havr the kids all stay. But I did want to stop in and tell everyone I'd be thinking about ya today and for everyone to have a good day doing what YOU have planned. The weather is finally getting a lot better! I had my gays mixed upand thought American Idol was on last nite, but it's on for the next 3 nites, so I'll be watching that. I'll stop back early evening and see how everyone is doing. Take care....Debbie

Good morning Linda,Debbie and everyone.Today is suppose to get to 60 degrees,that will feel great.Still wishing for spring,I seem to have more energy then.Right now I don't seem to have any.Just doing the regular things today,cooking spagetti for dinner with pudding for dessert.Yesterday I tried Babettes recipe for bbq potatoes, the only difference was I cooked them in the oven instead of on the grill.They were great my whole family loved them.Even Kristin who is so picky. Laughing

Linda, the patch you designed was fabulous you are a very gifted person.What crafts are the scouts making tonight?I love crafts.Sewing and crocheting are what I do most.Have a great time tonight.

Good Morning, Linda, Debbie, Pat, and all to follow!
Guess what! We have a heat wave!! Temperatures reached 40 degrees yesterday. What a difference from -2 degrees Sunday night.

The last few days, I've had a wonderful schedule.... live with the unexpected, it will happen. The unexpected is not bad, but does not always fit into your plans. However, it has kept life interesting. Smile

I have to get things miscellaneous household chores finished today, and prepare for a meeting tonight. Wishing each of you a lovely day.

Sending smiles your way,
Vicki

Good morning Linda, Pat, Debbie and Vicki and to all my other BakeSpace friends! Vicki, I saw those Paczki in some of our local markets, I had never heard of them until about two weeks ago. I didn't try them, what makes them special. Today is Faschnacht day around here, it is basically a donut without a hole. I hear it is a tradition because of Fat Tuesday. Debbie, I hope your Mom is doing better today, she sure is having a time of it. I found lots of things for my bathroom that we remodeled when I was shopping with my sister yesterday, I got an early start on things today and hope to get everything done but the mirror taken down today. The people that built the house glued it to the wall and hubby is afraid of what is going to happen when we pry it off the wall. I will be brave and attempt it though. I just love the new mirror I got to go there and found a matching wall hanging to go with it. I am going to make a big pot of chili for dinner this evening, husband requested that we have it soon. Have a wonderful day everyone.

Patti,
Paczki are heavy, filled sweet rolls - traditionally prune filling. Now, paczkis are made with custard, blueberry, lemon, strawberry, raspberry, etc. fillings. I had never heard of them prior to living in Michigan. Bakeries and grocery stores start carrying them a one to two weeks prior to Fat Tuesday.

Vicki

===============

Here is a better explanation from Wikipedia:
PACZKI IN AMERICA

Polish immigrants have popularized this type of doughnut in some parts of the United States, especially in Chicago (home to the second largest Polish population after Warsaw) and Metro Detroit, where the word is often pronounced [puntʃki]. Here, prunes are considered the traditional filling, but many others are used as well, including lemon, strawberry, Bavarian cream, and raspberry. Due to French influence, paczki are eaten on Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) rather than on Fat Thursday. In the Polish community in Hamtramck, a Detroit enclave, an American-style Paczki Day Parade is organized annually on Mardi Gras (also known as Paczki Day in the region).

Babette~
I am not Polish, and never tried making these yummy rolls. There is a large Polish community here in west Michigan, too. So.... we have no problem picking them up fresh. Here is a recipe from TOH BB.

========================

Subject: Paczki * (Filled Polish Doughnuts)
Posted by: kitchenmagic Replies: 7 Posted on: 8/4/2004 12:26:51 PM

Paczki
(Filled Polish Doughnuts)

1 1/2 cup of milk
2 yeast cakes
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup butter
4 1/2 cups flour

Scald milk and cool to lukewarm. Break yeast into the lukewarm milk. Beat sugar and butter until fluffy, add eggs, salt, and flavoring. Add flour and milk gradually, beating well. Let rise in warm place until double in bulk, about 2 1/2 hour. Punch down, knead and let rise again. Place dough on lightly floured board, stretch toward you and fill with thick filling - rose jams, apricot or peach preserves, prune butter. Fold over and cut into desired size and shape like a ball, place on lightly floured surface and let rise. Fry in deep hot fat, turning only once. Paczki should have a very dark brown color before turning, to insure baking thoroughly. Drain on absorbent paper. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar.

Here is one of my favorite fillings:
CHEESE FILLING
1 package dry cottage
1/8 pound butter
1/2 egg yolk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon grated orange peel

Cream cheese and butter together. Blend in rest of ingredients til smooth and creamy.
