I grew up hearing about Pancake Tuesday (which in Canada is accompanied by maple syrup  :canada:) and since then have heard of different customs from around the world.

I recently learned about a tradition associating sausage and sauerkraut with the days before Lent and have made a giant pot to serve at our big Sunday family meal today.  I am blessed to have several of my grown children and their families near enough to gather regularly like this.  Sundays are typically a day, not only of worship, but of good food and enjoying being together.

Anybody else have special foods or family customs for the time before Lent?
Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine.


I love Thee, Jesus, my love.  Grant me the grace to love Thee always, and do with me what Thou wilt.

Oh I love paczki. Our local grocery store used to carry them.
