Happy Shrove Tuesday one and all! Now that my Grandma is no longer with us, I feel it is incumbent upon me to continue the tradition of tossing pancakes every year, to the amusement of friends. Unfortunately, whereas she did it with grace and style, ensuring a perfect 180 degree loop back into the pan, mine become folded anddangle over the side. Or else my aim is woeful and they end up splattered on the floor.
A few onlookers are joining Tam and me tonight for the festivities, along with bottles of lemon juice, chocolate sauce and strawberry sauce that were opened ahead of Pancake Day last year, and have been undisturbed since. Yum!
