Today is Shrove Tuesday, or Pancake Day. We're not huge pancake lovers, but I would usually make some as an after school snack and then have a late tea. I've got all the ingredients at the ready, I even bought a Jif lemon, something I usually forget, as we like our pancakes with lemon and sugar.
Unfortunately, Eleanor is at her drama group tonight, so we can't have a late tea, which means no after school snacking. Instead, I've made lasagne ready for tea, and we'll have our pancakes for breakfast at the weekend.
We always used to make pancakes for supper when Daniel and Eleanor had friends staying for sleepovers when they were younger. I used to let them flip the pancake, something that some of them had never tried before, and they though it was great fun. I used to make sure we had plenty of different toppings, even though we always have lemon and sugar. I remember one of Daniel's friends having Golden Syrup on hers, I can't think of anything more sickly.
