I thought it funny that people were leaving the supermarket last weekend with shopping trolleys stuffed with goodies and luxury foods whilst they were also buying pancake mixes and, worse still, ready made pancakes.
Hypocrisy at its best.

You've been indoctrinated by the church to think pancakes are only for if you are going to starve yourself the next few days. They were invented before the church was by the Greeks and Romans

I'm only making the association between pancakes and Shrove Tuesday to highlight the fact that many of the shoppers planning to celebrate this religeous event will also be stuffing their faces as usual, both before and after. As I understand it the pancakes are supposed to represent the last few crumbs of food left in the pantry before starving (to death) for the next 40 days.

Personally I don't mind when I eat them, if ever, I'm not all that partial to them, I'd rather make Yourshire puds.

I wasn't aware that pancakes were such an old recipe though. Were the ancients tossers or turners I wonder?
