It’s the best Tuesday of the year, the one where we get to eat a lot of sugar and channel New Orleans’ spirit, no matter where we are. Fat Tuesday, Shrove Tuesday, yes, Mardi Gras!
In my native Michigan, we celebrate with paczki, a massive, special jelly doughnut loaded with enough of everything bad for you that it comes back around to good again.
Here, the variety is shockingly wider. (Seriously, they’re really big doughnuts.) King Cake, paczki, sandwiches, drinks…
