Woo hoo! Mardi Gras, Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day! Time to celebrate Fat Tuesday. Eat up all the good stuff before tomorrow because tomorrow is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the Lenten fast. If you're really lucky, you'll be in Rio de Janero for the big party.
I'll not be in Brazil but I will be in SW Scotland where we will be having some wonderful crepes. I like them with lemon, butter and sugar. I made apple crepes one year and topped them off with calvados. I don't know what we'll be going for tonight, but we'll be having some good stuff here. Perhaps we'll have potato pancakes. It's not traditional Shrove Tuesday food, but we've certainly got loads of potatoes around here.
I will post tomorrow about Lent and what that's going to mean for me this year.
