It’s Sugar and Lemon Day, so I had to reblog this from an earlier post I did!
Yeap…it’s Shrove Tuesday. The one day a year where we dust off the frying pan with the dodgy teflon coating and the wobbly handle.
Flour, milk and an egg later, I’m whisking my batter like no batter has been whisked before!
Freshly cut lemons waiting on the side, dogs out of tossing range…er…I hope. Only one thing left…I’ve GOT to sing the song my late Granny taught us:
“Shrove Tuesday, Shrove Tuesday,
Poor Jack went to work.
His mother made him some pancakes,
But she didn’t know how.
She tossed them, she turned them,
She made them quite black…
She put so much pepper in
That she poisoned poor Jack.”
That’s a little ‘Grimm’s Fairy Tales’ for you like the old nursery rhymes which were rather dark really, but I’ve been hearing that song my whole life and a pancake just isn’t a pancake without it! 😛
Happy Pancake Day everyone, may your flipping and tossing be mighty! 😀 xxx
