Paczki

Office of Debbie Dingell

Today is known as "Fat Tuesday," and thousands of Paczki are eaten across Michigan as part of a pre-Lenten tradition and as a Polish celebration.

89.1 WEMU's Lisa Barry spoke to 12th District Congresswoman Debbie Dingell, who shared the tradition today at home and in Washington, D.C. to carry on the tradition started over 40 years ago by her husband, Congressman John Dingell, who passed away last month.

It's probably safe to say that the most popular treat on Fat Tuesday is the Paczki.  But did you know that you can get a healthier version of the pastry in Ann Arbor?
