Let's celebrate Pączki Day!

What's a pączki?  It's a traditional Polish doughnut. And from what we've read this Polish deliciousness was made back in the day to use up ingredients such as lard, sugar, eggs and fruits before Lent starts.

Here's a few of Chicago Northwest pączki locations:

Jarosch Bakery in Elk Grove Village 847-437-1234
