Paczki Day

Lest anyone think Í'm ignoring my Polish heritage in favor of my current abode, I decided to spend the day making paczki, since Paczki Day (also known as Mardi Gras to you non-Poles) is coming up this week.  You really can't go wrong with doughballs fried in hot oil and then smothered in sugar and stuffed with fruit jam.  A cardiologist might disagree, but I'm pretty sure one from the Motherland would have to think about it for a few minutes first.  I did have to make do without my favorite filling--cherry jam--in favor of the local specialties: passionfruit and guava.  But you know what?  Sometimes you just have to take one for the team, and I was not about to go paczki-less on Tuesday.  Even *I* have limits, people.
