    Yum! Sounds tempting!

    On another Mardi Gras tack... how many out there think Mardi Gras is English? I used to ask my classes that (I taught high school foreign languages), and the only ones who said NO were those who had had some French or were from New Orleans. It's like those other famous "English" words, like Kindergarten, kiosk, patio, fiesta, and berserk - we just borrowed them, but they've become so embedded in our language that we don't even think about twice about them. A friend from NYC asked me once when Cinco de Mayo was. I told her I didn't have time to check, because I had to take the fajitas and frijoles out to the patio for the fiesta. :lol:

    I used to work across the street from a bakery (near Chicago) that ONLY made paczki on Fat Tuesday. They had strawberry, blueberry, lemon, poppy seed, custard, Bavarian creme and several other flavors besides my favorite, apricot! People used to line up outside to buy them to take to their places of work. Sure do miss those wonderful Chicago bakeries.......
