Main Question or Discussion Point

I was talking with a Russian acquaintance yesterday and she said that her friend called her up on Sunday and asked her if it was Super Tuesday. I can only imagine the subsequent conversation:

Tatya: No, you stupid girl. It is Sunday. How can it be Super Tuesday?
Nadya: But everything today is super this, super that.
Tatya: It is Superbowl Sunday.......
Nadya: What is Superbowl Sunday?
Tatya: It is ball game.
Nadya: So when is Super Tuesday?
Tatya: Tuesday!
Nadya: But Tuesday is Fat Tuesday......
Tatya: Yes. It is both Fat and Super Tuesday.
Nadya: So it is Super Fat Tuesday?
Tatya: Nyet!
Nadya: So when is Fat Sunday?
Tatya: ..........................


Happy Holiday everyone!

Gifted class? That reminds me of when my aunt and uncle came to visit from Germany and refused to go into the Gift Shop.

"Why not", we asked. Of course we couldn't understand. Though mother understood and giggled.

Gift is "Poison" in the German language.

Don't really get the picture...anyways, I'll rephrase and say "the class for exceptionally talented students" to really piss off the administration, which is waging war, trying to cut the "class for exceptionally talented students".

Ditto. We are not on the same wavelength.

I want to know where to get some paczki. Boy those sound good right now.:tongue2:

I have a Polish bakery that I get mine from. At 1,000 calories each, Fat Tuesday takes on a very realistic meaning.

I can't take all the credit. It was those two Russian girls that got me started.
Super Sunday, Super Tuesday, Super Size Me on Super Fat Tuesday on a dozen super paczki.

Ah ha! found a recipe:
http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080203/NEWS05/802030643/1007 [Broken]
(Grandma) Witkowski explained that her family moved to the United States from Poland in the late 1800s. She has been making the doughnut-like treats for decades and said the recipe is pretty simple:

Mix 3 cups of milk with a half a pound of butter, 3/4 cup of sugar and a teaspoon of salt. Let it sit until it is lukewarm. Add 12 egg yolks, a jigger of rum and 11 cups of flour. The recipe calls for two packages of dry yeast, mixed with one teaspoon of sugar. Dissolve in 1/4 cup of water.
hmmm.... That recipe looks like the basis for everything my mother used to cook. Perhaps she was part Polish.
