Shrove Tuesday - Giving Up Something For Lent

Today is Ash Wednesday - the beginning of Lent. Yesterday it was Shrove Tuesday which to lots of people means Pancake Day - traditionally it was the day that you would have a feast to use up products like sugar, fat and eggs, which were restricted during Lent.

We enjoyed pancakes of lemon and sugar (the low calorie version) and bananas, syrup and single cream. Absolutely delicious. My toddler enjoyed devouring them immensely!

Did you have pancakes? What mouthwatering fillings did you have in your pancakes ?

Will you be giving anything up for Lent and what will it be ?


  1. wow those pancakes tempting me

  2. Oh yes! Thomas loved the flipping! Tried blueberries with ice cream, but lemon on sugar on the rest. Can't beat lemon and sugar:)

  3. Are you giving anything up for Lent?


Please leave your comments, I love reading them and will reply to all :-)
