Pancake Day Is The Best Day.
You learn something new everyday! Yesterday, I learned that it was Pancake Day. Pancake Day, also known as Shrove Tuesday, is the day before Ash Wednesday. In America, we usually call it Fat Tuesday, but in the UK, it’s more often called Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday. This is apparently Gareth’s favorite day of the year. The pancakes he made are much thinner than what Americans would call pancakes, and are similar to what we would consider crepes. He made the batter using flour, butter, eggs, milk, a pinch of salt and water. After he cooked them up and tossed them in the air (a talent I was unaware of and am still in awe of), he rolled them up and topped them with lemon juice and sugar. He ate 9 pancakes in total and was in blissful food coma for the rest of the evening!
