Today is Shrove Tuesday AKA Pancake Day! Yay!!
There is also an internationally known children's story titled The Big Pancake. I know as a child I loved most of the Ladybird books that were read on the classroom's reading carpet or ones I chose to read to myself and have indeed collected since becoming a grown up! The above mentioned story was always a winner for me. So, with pancakes being prepared, treated like a work of art and mostly eaten around the world today, I thought it apt to bring them here too...
...In real life! Although, I almost forgot to pick up some vital ingredients this morning - oh how my day would have been stained with tears if I had not remembered! Thank goodness I got my act together just in time! Phew!!
|A few ingredients required!|
|The first one on the go!|
|My daughter's preferred way of eating pancakes!|
|No chance of this pancake doing a runner out of the door!|
I still prefer the traditional way of serving pancakes - freshly squeezed lemon and a sprinkling of sugar before being rolled. And of course then scoffed like they're going out of fashion!
|As you can see there was none of this occurring in our kitchen!|
Happy Shrove Tuesday - tomorrow is Ash Wednesday - the first day of Lent - I am giving up chocolate this year! I can feel my body's disappointment already! Although, I will be reunited with chocolate again 6 days before the end of Lent as I will not allow myself to eat it on Sundays. I don't think it would go back to chocolate free days on any of the Mondays and the days that follow.
