Paczki Day!

Fans of deep-fried donuts filled with jelly (and who isn't one?) can rejoice as today is Paczki Day-- the Polish equivalent of Mardi Gras.  Throughout Chicagoland, you should have no trouble finding paczki for a reasonable price, but pronouncing their name might be another story (I say "POONCH-key").  However, if you are feeling ambitious, you can try making your own.
