Pancakes - they are just a favourite in our household - often as a weekend breakfast ...
We love pancakes for Sunday breakfast with fruit, yoghurt & filter coffee.
Shrove Tuesday marks the start of a time of reflection & abstinence ahead of the 40 (47 actually if you count the Sunday's) days of Lent.
My students have spent the day telling me about the wonderful fillings they were going to have but I have settled for fresh strawberries, yoghurt & some toffee or pecan syrup with lots of cinnamon sugar & a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to cut through the sweetness.
The arrival of Lent always means giving up something - this year, I am going to do my best to give up chocolate. It is my weakness but that is my resolve ....
Are you giving up anything for Lent? What are your favourite pancakes & fillings?
So bring on Ash Wednesday tomorrow & let Lent begin!
Ps Don't you just love the pretty Ikea Spring-like plates?
