happy pancake tuesday

It's Pancake Tuesday (also known as Shrove Tuesday in the UK)! This day of Mardi Gras feasting is traditionally kicked off by a tall stack of pancakes. Why pancakes? It was to use up all of the rich ingredients like butter and eggs before Lent.

Oh how I wish I was eating pancakes this morning!
