Here I am, on Shrove Tuesday, all alone, totally sans crepes!
It is my own fault- I completely forgot, and ate my last egg yesterday – and as Bob is bringing me back some lovely fresh New Laid Eggs when he returns from his Norfolk Retreat shortly, I didn’t want to go out and buy any more this afternoon after school.
I had a lovely time in school today. I took my own lunch, but the children had pancakes on the School Dinner Menu. Children who normally bring a packed lunch could sign up last week if they wanted the special Pancake Day meal. But the pancakes were savoury ones, filled with chilli sauce [somewhat bland, I am told]
Personally I feel Shrove Tuesday Pancakes should be sweet ones with sugar.
I suppose the meat filling could be considered part of the ‘Carne Vale’ goodbye meat thing.
Bob makes extremely good pancakes- I may buy a lemon in anticipation of his return and we can feast on pancakes later in the week. I realise that isn’t quite in the spirit of Lent, but never mind.
I trust you have enjoyed your pancakes if you have been eating them today. I note that Karen has golden syrup, chocolate spread and sliced bananas ready for topping hers – what do you like on your pancakes? I am sugar, or syrup, plus lemons.
Maybe, following last week’s success with the Valentine Biscuits at the Healing Course, I should have served crepes with the coffee at tonight’s session!
