Fat Tuesday (was it ever)

Remember a few years ago when I talked about Pączkis? (Or again the following year?)
Well, that was part of a tradition that has continued to this day. My now-former-officemate Glenn picked up a couple dozen pączkis at Calumet Bakery in Lansing, IL and did a drive-by with a raspberry one for me while he was on the way to his work.
When I got back to my office, someone had brought in FOUR King Cakes from Bennison’s in Evanston, and moments later another coworker brought in four dozen pączkis from Dinkel’s in Chicago. Couple that with a cup of Seattle’s Best and we’re talking serious sugar crash by late morning.
The sugar bombs in the photo above came from the Rolling Meadows Meijer store. Thankfully, Lisa took those to her office today.
And just like five years ago today, I’m sitting here writing this when I should be at the gym.
Happy Mardi Gras!
