Today is Shrove Tuesday or better known as Pancake Day, the last day before Lent.
In the days before chocolates, people make pancakes to use up rich foods such as milk, sugar and eggs before the fasting season of Lent. People usually give up meat, dairy or eggs.
I've decided to give up crisps for Lent and of course continue our usual "no meat on Fridays."
And to celebrate, I woke up early and prepared pancakes for the family. I had pancakes with cream and raspberries dusted with cocoa powder.
Poj had pancakes with banana and nutella.
And Papa E wanted plain pancakes with butter. Boring but still yummy according to him =)
What would you give up for Lent?
Happy Pancake Day everyone!
