Who Stole the Punchki?
Tomorrow is "Fat Tuesday." Around these parts, that means, "Punchki Day!" So, if you're thinking that it doesn't look much different than a jelly filled doughnut, you're right. Unfortunately, they will be everywhere I turn tomorrow. In the department office, in the mailroom, in the cafeteria, at choir practice, etc. everywhere I go, punchki's will be present. One of the most famous places to get them is the National Bakery another famous Milwaukee Punchki hideaway is the Polish Center of Wisconsin
I will try to be strong and not eat a punchki. I know what they taste like and I don't care for the prune ones at all. The only reason I end up eating them is because of the tradition. Seems that way for birthday cake too. I really didn't need it, but because it's been a tradition I had to stick with it.
