pancakes

happy pancake day

i woke up this morning and it was raining. yay, said me. i love the rain, mostly because it’s the anti-heat (and i loathe heat) plus it also brings that lovely aaah smell in the air. it’s also pancake weather. that was our family tradition (is it yours, too?) – when it rained, mom made pancakes.

but then i noticed pancake day is trending on twitter, is everyone in sync with me today? no, it’s actually shrove tuesday aka fat tuesday – the day you get to stuff your face before lent starts (ash wednesday, you heathens). i don’t practice lent, but i DO practice rainy pancake days.

i prefer crepes to the thick american variety, hot (or cold) with a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar & butter. follow this basic crepe recipe, mix a teaspoon of cinnamon with sugar, sprinkle on the pancakes and you’re done. or you could go the whole hog and go the nutella / caramel treat route…
