Happy Fastnacht Day!
Today is Fastnacht Day or "Fast Night" Day. Shrove Tuesday. The day we Pennsylvanians dedicate to the consumption of fastnachts or donuts. I say donuts, because there are a lot of places who don't make the authentic fastnachts, and ya gotta make do with a donut. What a shame! wink I am unhappily abstaining from the donut binge. This dern pact with hubby to go on his diet with him (one month and counting). I have the urge to drive over to the local bakery and press my nose against their window. At least with the glass partitioning me off I won't get drool all over the baked goods! Now if you are not from around this area you are probably wondering what in the heck Fastnacht Day is. Well here is a site that tells you a little bit more about it. It also has a recipe, so you can whip up some of your own. Yum! Eat them in good health and think of poor little me... Awash in drool.
