Happy Shrove Tuesday to Ya

Jamie and I finished up the dishes from a Shrove Tuesday dinner, or Pancake Tuesday Supper.  Growing up in Canada we would always have pancakes on the day before Ash Wednesday, usually in the form of a huge Pancake dinner at the church.  Celebrating Shrove (Pancake) Tuesday is an Irish/English tradition that started because pancakes use up a lot of sweet/ rich foods before lent begins.  I have never been particularly fond of pancakes, they are a little too soft for my tastes, so Jamie doesn’t get them (or any other sweet breakfast food for that matter) very often and after taking a look at all of the dishes we had to do he may not get them again until next year.
