Shrove Tuesday

Pancake Tuesday again and Bert is using up all our fat, flour, eggs and sugar before the Lenten Fast.

Insert 'What a Tosser' quip here.

To tell the truth these pancake pictures are from a year or so back. Bert is not here right now - he is off out at Greenmount College searching for a horticulturist missing in action.

Meanwhile back at the ranch no pancakes have been cooked. I have batter sitting reading to rock and Pearlie will be having pancakes for lunch. She will not be pleased but we have run out of that plastic white bread she relishes.

And, to tell more truth, if today's treat was to reflect my proposed Lenten Fast the pancakes would be laced with red wine and chocolate. I'm hopping on the wagon for Lent. Can't say I'm looking forward to it but I watched part of a TV programme last night that has put me off the notion of liver and onions for a good long while.

We had pancakes - extra eggy pancakes (with shell). Martha cracked in an extra egg when my back was turned. She was very chuffed with herself.

I haven't make pancakes for a long time. We used to have them for breakfast when Elly was small, it was a great way to get her up early for school.

Bert's version look very like mine, are they thin like crepe?

Grannymar - Bert's were thin, made with plain flour. Better for tossing. They are the ones I prefer.

The pancakes I made today were more like drop scones as I thought Pearlie would like them. She didn't!

Zie - Love it that Martha cracked in an extra egg. I hope they were Springhill eggs.

Zoe said...

They were.

And I hope they were 'sgusting eggs :)

Wednesday Morning over this side of the hill. Any chance of a left over pancake.

PS Nelly looks like we are back to normal Thanks a mill!

Happy to oblige. I didn't realise that Captcha thing was going on. Thanks for helping me get it straightened out.
