Shrove Tuesday is upon us again, also known as Pancake day, the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday which is the first day of Lent. It's called Pancake Day because it's the day traditionally for eating pancakes as they were a way to use up any stocks of milk, butter and eggs which were forbidden during the abstinence of Lent.
We love pancakes of any description, Mr J makes the best ones & annoyingly he just chucks in the ingredients for pancakes of all descriptions into a bowl, no measuring & they come out perfectly every time!!! His Sunday flapjacks made with buttermilk are a fabulous indulgence, I always eat too many.
So for tea this evening we finished with pancakes & the obligatory flipping & (nearly always) catching again, drizzled with lemon juice & lightly sprinkled with sugar. Mr J (who can afford the calories darn him) had his drenched in golden syrup.
