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.
