prounounced "pounchski" here in my area. it is a celebration marked by fat tuesday to get all of your indulgences out of the way and clear your cupboards of sweets and the like before the fasting of lent starts. packzi are 30grams of fat worth of large filled type donuts with either chocolate, cream or fruit filling covered in either a sugar glaze or powdered sugar. let me tell you, they are GOOD. my daddy used to drive down to the poletown section of the city every fat tuesday and bring us authentic packzi from the New Deluxe bakery every year until he couldn't drive anymore. we would eat as much of the dozen before fat tuesday ended and throw the rest away so we could fast on ash wednesday. i wish you all could be here so you could share in the tradition.
