What is Pancake Day?
Pancake Day (also known as Shrove Tuesday) is the last day before the period that Christians call Lent. It is traditional on this day to eat pancakes.
Why are Pancakes eaten on Shrove Tuesday?
Lent is a time of abstinence, of giving things up. So Shrove Tuesday is the last chance to indulge yourself and to use up the foods that aren’t allowed in Lent, which were traditionally fat, butter and eggs.
Nowadays we tend to give up other indulgences such as chocolate, biscuits, crisps, some people even give up wine!!!!!!!!
Here at Jellybean HQ we’ve committed to giving up the following –
Cat, Sooz and Gemma = Chocolate
Jayney = Chocolate and Crisps
Rachel = Not doing her ironing (think that means she’ll do it!!!)
Kim = Bagels
Sam = Crisps, Sweets, Chips and Cakes (she has already given up Chocolate for 2010!!!)
Andy W = Bread
Sue = White Bread
Katie = Sugar in her tea & coffee
We’re also conjuring up some great ideas for this evenings pancakes – Sam is looking forwards to her Marmite pancakes, where as I am sticking to my lemon and cinnamon sugar (who puts marmite on pancakes???!!!)
We look forwards to hearing all your pancakes stories – send any interesting recipes to: firstname.lastname@example.org
