Today is Shrove Tuesday, which in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Canada is commonly known as Pancake Day due to the tradition of eating pancakes on that day. This tradition comes from a time where any rich foods were eaten on the day before Lent, and fasting, begins. I decided that since my boyfriend, Wiggle the Dog celebrates Pancake Day that I should, too! So when mom got home from work tonight, she made blueberry pancakes for dinner. Here is a pancake frying in the pan:
She told me that she was making a blueberry pancake just for me!
She cut my pancake into pieces so I wouldn't gobble it in one bite & put maple syrup on it.
It was delicious! Here I am enjoying it:
This is the second year we've shared in this tradition with our UK friends and it's such a fabbie one we're going to do it every year!
