This March is definitely the lion. They say March either comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb or vice versa. Cold weather, a few inches of snow…yeah, I’d say that’s lion-esque…or is it lamb-esque (’cause it’s white?)?
But the best part of March is that tomorrow is my favorite day of the year. It’s Paczki day! How can you not like that? Who doesn’t?
You go to the store and pick out your favorite half-dozen or so and just eat them all day. Or perhaps you buy a dozen (Cheese, strawberry, raspberry, custard, Boston creme, blueberry, prune, lemon, apple, cream cheese [isn’t that the same as cheese?]…what’d I miss?).
There’s nothing better than Mardi Gras (and not just for the beads). It’s a time to eat as much as you want. Stock up for the lean times that Lent brings (and this never ending winter [just once, I want Ned Stark to say, “Spring is coming”).
So, enjoy your paczki tomorrow. Eat as many as you can. They’re only around once a year (like the Easter Bunny or Santa), so get your fill. Satisfy your craving. You’ll have to wait another 365 (ish) days to fulfill your jelly-filled dreams.
