pancakes! {hello, fat tuesday}

Do you celebrate Fat Tuesday?
It's the last hurrah before Lent begins tomorrow.
Traditionally, people make pancakes, which used to be done as a way of using up eggs, dairy and fat before Lent fasting began.
(yeah, I just googled that.)


We celebrate pretty much anything involving pancakes. They are a big deal around here.
As I was looking for a little inspiration to fancy them up for tonight I found these gems:

Happy Fat Tuesday one and all!
