I had all the family & some visitors home on the weekend so decided to do our pancakes on Sunday so we could all partake.
The table was set with a decidedly Spring feel of purple & green
Even our bulbs are purple this year which looks fresh & cheerful & a bowl of mixed tulips are a perfect match!
Our healthy Shrove Tuesday breakfast
Perfect start to the day - unrushed breakfast with the family
Shrove Tuesday naturally brings with it the arrival of the 40 days of Lent which lasts from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday.
Lent heralds in the 40 days spent in the desert & a time to give up something. I have given up chocolate the last 3 Lent's which was hard; I have till Ash Wednesday (tomorrow) to decide on what I am giving up.
In the meantime, enjoy the pancakes with many toppings & happy flipping ...
