So Shrove Tuesday was always my second most favourite day at school (the fave being the last day before summer holidays) because we got pancakes at school.... but also because we got my Grandad ringing us at 5am to remind us that it was pancake day and to make my mum cook us corn jacks (pancakes with corn kernals in the batter) and pancakes for breakfast. THEN we got pancakes after school at my Grandma's house and THEN we got my dad making us his version of Crepe Suzette for dinner. BEST DAY EVER and it came once a year.

 

So... made the kid (Princes B1t(h Face) corn jacks for breakfast with bacon, sent her off to school with money to buy pancakes at their St Vinnies fundraiser and have the strawberries marinating for dinner tonight. 

 

Phoned my dad to remind him its Pancake Tuesday so am just waiting for my mum to phone and whinge because Tuesday isn't dad's day to cook (which is weird that she even cares because she can't cook unless you count clag or selmonella or botulism as food) and he makes too much mess. 

 

YAY Pancake Tuesday.

 

So our pancakes are more like large pickelets or drop scones that the french style crepes but if anyone needs some pancake recipes I have both my grandparents and my dad's crepe recipe.

Pancake Day? You guys will celebrate anything won't you?!  :laughbounce:   We don't have a pancake day or boxing day in the U.S. (that I'm aware of). Today for us is Lincoln's birthday which is just an excuse for the kids to have a day off school :doh:

When I was little I thought Boxing Day was called boxing day because it was when you had to put all the boxes from your presents in the bin and all the Chrissy decorations back in their boxes and clean all signs of christmas from the house (my mum hates christmas)... but luckily my dad saved me from this hell by taking me to the cricket.

That pancake looks awesome, even if the flavours are all wrong :smile:

 

Strawberry Jam here or lemon and sugar at a push.

Omg that is awesome Wee Me. I don't think I could eat it.

I am a bit of a topping s|\/t.... For breaky I have Vegemite or tomato sauce if its corn jacks, for main I'll have cheese, for dessert I'll have golden syrup or maple syrup or jam or lemon and sugar. But last night I had vanilla bean icecream and home made marinade strawberries.

The only thing you should be putting atop your pancakes aside from a large dollop of butter

is Pure Canadian Maple Syrup (from Quebec maple trees of course!!)

The process of quitting smoking doesn’t end with the last cigarette. It’s not quitting itself, the real key is staying quit!

I understand the maple syrup on those big, thick pancakes, but on the delicate ones I'm having right now it wouldn't work!

 

I thought bacon was required alongside the maple syrup?

Bacon is a legal requirement whenever one indulges in the "syrup". I just assumed everyone knew that  :wink:

The princess has 'the syrup' and chocolate topping on her bacon, I think she gets it from her dad because I only eat normal things.
