Woo-hoo! Today, (Tues Feb 28th) - is PANCAKE DAY !!
Pancakes for breakfast.. pancakes for lunch.. pancakes for dinner.. pancakes for dessert!
I think I forgot one year, Mardi Gras just kinda slipped by. I think it was on the Thursday that I realized I'd missed it!
Hey, I'm curious - if you're not originally from Canada, what (if anything) do you eat on Mardi Gras? Here in Canada, they eat 'pancakes', which are those 5-or-6-inch rounds of batter that cook up kinda fluffy. I grew up in Europe and pancakes to us are 'crepes' - frying-pan-sized & paper thin.
We usually put fresh lemon juice & white castor sugar, and roll them up into 'cigars'. Nutella is also excellent on them! Grand Marnier (liquor) too!! Yum!!
My earliest 'pancake day' memory was when I was 3 years old - my older brother's best friend, who lived down the street - invited us over after dinner for pancakes. His mom cooked up a stack of crepes that must have been 4" tall - and the 3 of us ate them all!!
