So, as you are probably aware, an important event on the Christian holiday calendar happened this past week…Shrove Tuesday. Otherwise known as ‘Pancake Day’. I love Pancake Day. In an otherwise dreary month, there’s one day (usually in February) where we get to have fun playing with our food! Yippee! Now that we’re having our ‘Soul Food’ nights on Tuesdays, pancake day was on a smallgroup night. It was also the Edinburgh half-term holiday. So after work I got the bus home whipped up some batter and then Lady V and Miss S came round to pick me up. Miss S and I had fun trying not to spill pancake batter all over the car as Lady V expertly navigated Edinburgh’s pothole filled roads. *Note to self, next time make the batter at the location you’re gonna make pancakes*
We even had a crepe maker this year… (thanks J & A for bringing that along – immense!!)
And of course there is the tradition (since 2007) of capturing the pancake toss – here is Brisaac doing some ‘pancake gymnastics’:
Two other members of our crew have had birthdays this weekend (more birthday cake on Tuesday?), and since Brisaac already got on my blog today, it’s only fair that I include birthday girl Lady V too with her ‘Birthday Rice Pudding’ from last night even though it has absolutely nothing to do with pancake day…
What can I say? It’s been a super fun week. It is now Lent, and I haven’t given anything up but I’m looking forward to the Chocolat themed bible study we’re embarking on. This week sees life go back to it’s normal busy eveningness with a work meeting replacing Guides and it’s a Senior Section week. Oh, and I’m back in school this week too. Hope you guys have had a fun week too!
