Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday) - it's time to bring out your pans again

I was strolling in Waitrose at Canada Square during lunch the other day (sad, I know) when I came across a stand declaring Pancake Day that was to be held on 16th Feb (and that's today!). The stand was stacked with pancake pans going at £8 each.


Those pancake pans were not only huge, they even had a recipe for the 'perfect pancake' engraved on the back of the pan - how apt.

Unlike last year's Pancake Tuesday (or Shrove Tuesday), there was no races to be held near Canary Wharf. To think that I was all prepared to skip my lunch and brave the cold for that. If you're lucky to be near one, do drop by and join in the fun. Head towards ViewLondon to check where they would be held.

Happy flippin'!

I cant believe I missed out on Pancake Day. I find something quite gratifying about making pancakes and the eating them warm with some strawberry jam or maple syrup.

I maybe missed Shrove Tuesday, but I'm going to make up for it big time tonight....
