Ah but are they not fried as the "old school" donut was, instead of baked? (IT PAYS to have friends from MI who come East to play and share food!)

Those donuts known as Puczki's are here and all over town before "Fat Tuesday" rings in Lent. Like other holidays these days, that time before fat Tuesday seems to start earlier and earlier every year. I must say they are packed full of calories even more so that your average run of the mill filled donut! I've never been a calorie counter, but have been told by my sister who's a nurse that one puczki has around 1000 calories in it. Eat two (which isn't hard to do) and you have just topped out your daily calorie requirement! They are darn tasty though! Havin a sweet tooth can sure get ya into trouble!

Y'know,it's fun to talk about gorging on all these delicious goodies,but I know a guy(driver in our transit company)that has gone over 400 lbs and is having some serious health problems.It's sad to see a young guy like him struggling to get around,and to hear about up-coming surgery.All because he can't keep his eating under some kind of control.I'm no skinny health fanatic,but I do try...

When you have made your pasty and you fold the pastry over you leave a thick crust a round the edge, you dont eat this ,its just for you to hold the pasty, because your hands would be really dirty, you would have noway to wash them and it allows you to hold the pasty , but not eat the dirty bits.

Oh man, you boys have got my saliva glands working overtime. My wife spent her early years in Butte, MT where those Cornish miners made their way to the copper mines. Every now and then, if I ask (beg, whine, plead) real nice she'll make a batch of pasties. Hot out of the oven covered with sausage gravy, or cold and dry in the lunch pail. Yum! Ooops, there goes the saliva glands again.

Sticks: how about "Squirrel Turnovers"?

There is a town in N.E. PA called Pen Argyl. It supposedly is a Welch name, I lived there for a few years. There was a business called "Mr.Pastie", they made all different kinds of pasties. Delicious, they're sold at local supermarkets and from their store. They even sell them frozen.
