1. Fat Tuesday

Yup, it's Fat Tuesday down in South Louisiana, just about everything is shutdown in preparation for the last day of parades and feasting.

New Orleans will be wild until midnight when the mounted police ride down Bourbon, pushing all the revelers before them as Mardi Gras ends.

4. King Cake

Vendors have been bringing King Cakes to my office all last week. You can't escape it. I personally don't care for it as most have the colored sugar on top which tastes weird to me.

5. I agree...

I don't like straight sugar of any color. I don't mid sugar IN stuff, I just don't like pure sugar on stuff.

I DO however Love Beignets and Coffee. Mainly Cafe Du Monde in nice weather. I miss Muffelleta sandwiches as well. I don't know how everyone in New Orleans isnt a cardiac patient.

6. We're the World Punch-kee Capital here.

Detroiters swarm across the river to the two Windsor bakeries which work three shifts with extra staff to produce 10-20 thousand of the most authentic paczki this side of Krakow. No nasty icing; powdered sugar or it's no paczki.

Meanwhile, in Toronto, Roncesvalles Avenue "Little Poland" institution M. Granowaka Bakery Cafe quietly produces their year-round offering with little fanfare, in one flavour, strawberry, dusted lightly with powdered sugar, enjoyed anytime in the afternoon with coffee, for those in the know.
