Fat Tuesday... Possibly one of the best traditions practice EVER! It's the day before Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent, when you can eat all the fattest foods you want in one day. It's also known as Mardi Gras, one of the biggest party days of the year.  Of course the next day Lent begins, and that usually means giving up something! Ok, so my personal favorite desserts to divulge in on this amazing day, would have to be Paczki, pronounced (POHNCH-kee), and Platzek. Oh yes I am Polish, so I am spoiled with homemade mouthwatering treats! The other fun treat to partake in would have to be King cake.  According to About.com, King cake is a fun tradition, where a token is hidden inside the cake, the lucky finder is believed to have good luck for the upcoming year!  So let's get that prize hidden and cross your fingers... some of us need the luck! Let's party like it's New Orleans, check this out!
