Today is Shrove Tuesday

You might have heard about it. In fact, this day is also known as Pancake Day. It takes place forty-seven days before Easter. In past centuries, Lent was a time of fasting. Both meat and eggs were forbidden throughout six weeks. The tradition was to eat up all your meat on the Monday before Lent, and all your eggs on the Tuesday (in pancakes). Nowadays, the fasting has gone and the eating remains! There is a pancake tossing contest and pancake race in England as well. I know English pancakes are extraordinary wonderful but...I am not going to beat around the bush, I prefer them thicker. So, let's prepare delicious pancakes following the instructions below. The video is very helpful. Enjoy!
