Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 51 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Shrove Tuesday


The day before Lent, and it is not only a dieter's nightmare, but particularly for those of us Low Carbing.


The big threat?


Pączki

The lard, sugar, and flour laden treat!

Combined with Pancakes and Ice Cream at the Shrove Tuesday dinner tonight.

It is an insulin overload day - diabetics beware!

And of course tomorrow we Fast.

I will stick to the sausage tonight - avoiding the carbs.....

But I hear the Pączki calling....in Polish....and unfortunately I went to a Polish High School and can understand enough Polish to hear the beck and call!
