The Fat Thursday

Krótka historia tłustego czwartku, zajadanych tego dnia pyszności (pączki, faworki i oponki) oraz przepis na te ostatnie. Najprostszy i najlepszy.

Did you know that in 2016 it was calculated that every resident of Munich throws away 15 kg of clothes a year? The UK could "boast" 30 kg per year per citizen, and the United States 36 kg per person.*

36 kilos of unloved garments. Per person. Annually.

The Bad

The whole problem with Nenka is that she is not evil at all. Not a bit. There is neither malice nor anger or evil, nothing. But what of it, if she looks as if it was a dream come true for a director in need of a pet to calmly rest on a schwarz-character’s lap. Evil incarnated.


The flat mouth, the curvature of an oversized penny bun and the delightful appearance are elements of smart camouflage. Please do not be fooled by appearances: a classic pug is an extremely lively rasp with a mouth that leaves the white shark green with envy. Well, maybe not, but what she certainly does is spread miasmata reminiscent of old, stale socks, which easily qualifies her as short-range biological weaponry.

The watercolors

It was love at first stroke. I usually had gone for the "brutal" media, i.e. if pastels then oil pastels, because there was insufficient patience for the delicate dryness, if a drawing, then in pen, not pencil, until one day it dawned on me to almost go bankrupt buying watercolors.
