Shrove Tuesday - time to get flipping again ....

How soon it seems to come around - Shrove Tuesday is upon us again & it is time to do some fabulous pancakes with inventive fillings! No snow on the ground like last year.

I had all the family & some visitors home on the weekend so decided to do our pancakes on Sunday so we could all partake.


The table was set with a decidedly Spring feel of purple & green



Even our bulbs are purple this year which looks fresh & cheerful & a bowl of mixed tulips are a perfect match!

Perfect start to the day - unrushed breakfast with the family


Shrove Tuesday naturally brings with it the arrival of the 40 days of Lent  which lasts from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday.

Lent heralds in the 40 days spent in the desert & a time to give up something. I have given up chocolate the last 3 Lent's which was hard; I have till Ash Wednesday (tomorrow) to decide on what I am giving up.

In the meantime, enjoy the pancakes with many toppings & happy flipping ...
