Okay, so I haven't posted much lately. I also haven't been dealing with my glucose intolerance very well lately either. It turns out that healthy eating is mostly difficult for me because it involves lots of planning and free time that is apparently being ripped from my hands. But whatever, everyone's busy. I didn't come here to post and bitch about my busy schedule. I came here to bitch about Paczki Day. Or, really, the lack of Paczki Day in Austin. I miss the ooeygooeyjellyfilledpowderedsugartopped doughnuts from Hamtramck. The closest thing we have in Austin, it seems, is the kolache. It turns out that those make a poor substitute for the beloved Paczki.
And this? This is how you do Paczki Day. You stand in long lines outside bakeries in Hamtramck and get a dozen amazing paczki to go. Next year, I'm totally making my own.
