The one day of the year when DH and The Boys don’t want to be bothered with a main meal, although I make them have something, all they want to eat are Pancakes!
Our lot prefer to have just the pancakes with orange juice and sugar. I prefer to have them with some maple syrup and I must admit that I love pancakes with savoury fillings too!!!
I am sure I have told you the story of DH when he was little with his best friend in their kitchen and his Mom just making pancake after pancake and he thinks they got through at least twenty each!!! I, however make one batch of batter and once its gone, its gone!!! Also because of my Scottish heritage I also make Scotch Pancakes or as I my Grandma called them drop scones, but DH prefers the thinner crepes style.
I have quite a bit of cooking to do today and then I will make the batter for later. Treacle usually gets the last little pancake from the end of the batter in her bowl!!!!
Happy Shrovetide everyone.
Hugs, Susie xx
The Royal Shrovetide Football match in Ashbourne between the Up’Ards and Down’Ards which they believe began in 1667. It is played on Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday and begins at 2.00pm each day until 10.00pm at night! All the shops and businesses in the centre of Ashbourne are closed and boarded up for the two days and the game rages around the market town!! As you can imagine there are not many rules and it is quite violent. A friend who was born in Ashbourne, one of the criteria, played for a number of years and had several injuries from it until his wife said that was enough!!!!!
