Or as we call it PANCAKE TUESDAY!!!!
I was a bad mom today - I slept until my dear 16 year old was walking out the door to go to school so he didn't get pancakes. In all fairness if I had remembered it was pancake Tuesday, I would have gotten up to make them. But I didn't.
So that means dinner tonight is pancakes with some fruit on top...mmmmm so tasty! I love using frozen strawberries thawed in the microwave so they're warm...the juice makes a bit of a syrup and the berries are so yummy on the pancakes.
I tried to make blueberry pancakes once and the pancakes all turned an unappetizing bluish/grey colour...and if you didn't eat them fast they started to leak blue juice. It was weird. I used to make chocolate chip pancakes for my kiddo but stopped when he would bounce off the walls for an hour or two afterwards.
Tomorrow Lent starts and I have to decide what to give up. Strangely, I am not actually christian, having never been baptised. That said I went to a Catholic elementary and high school, and my son is baptised so every year I try to give something up. This year it will be...hmmm...I want to say chocolate but am not sure that I could do it. I have until tomorrow to decide so I guess I'll have to give it some thought!
