Paczki Day 2020!

Happy Fat Tuesday, everyone! Like I have for the past 7 years, I celebrated by consuming a Paczki doughnut. I almost wasn't going to eat one this year because I had plans to do the Whole30 again starting last week but then that fell through since I caught a stomach bug. But I'm happy to have kept the tradition alive and even more thrilled to be eating normally again (lots of saltines and chicken soup was eaten for weeks).
This reddit post from a few days ago had me believing one of my favorite bakeries nearby would have paczki today. But upon arrival this morning, I was saddened to hear the paczki were at their other location in the suburbs. Maybe next year I'll get my hands on one cause they looked delicious!

So with little time before work, I had a Plan B prepared and returned to Banksia where I purchased my paczki last year. They didn't have any on display but an employee was kind enough to let me purchase a couple even though I hadn't called ahead to order them.
I totally forgot I ate the custard one last year and was convinced this was my first custard paczki. But like last year, I did think it was a little heavy on the oil flavor but it was delicious nonetheless.

HAPPY PACZKI DAY!
