Doughnut Day - 16th February
How many doughnuts have you eaten today?
Well, you're not Polish then :)
It's so called Fat Thursday in Poland today. This is similar to Shrove Tuesday or Mardi Gras...only it's on Thursday before. It is a traditional Polish and German feast marking the last Thursday before Lent. It's the last moment before Lent to loosen the belt and celebrate Carnival while eating and drinking.
In Poland it's associated with one thing - Doughnut. All shops and bakeries are adorned with big stacks of fresh doughnuts. Big, plump & proud with their lighter belt in the middle (sign of a good and masterly fried doughnut).
And even people on the diet can't resist the tempation of nice, although a bit naughty doughnut - it's Fat Thursday after all!
Would you make a plunge and try frying a few yourself?
If so, check the links I gathered for you.
