yes, it also sinifies the start of the christian festival (or what ever you want to call it) of Lent.
If someone could clear up what you are supposed to do for it though that would be handy :)

The reason that pancakes are associated with the day preceding Lent is that the 40 days of Lent form a period of liturgical fasting, during which only the plainest foodstuffs may be eaten. Therefore, rich ingredients such as eggs, milk, and sugar are disposed of immediately prior to the commencement of the fast. Pancakes and doughnuts were therefore an efficient way of using up these perishable goods, besides providing a minor celebratory feast prior to the fast itself :thumbsup:

More for everyone else then - smothered in butter & sugar and sprinkled with lemon & a drizzle of maple syrup.

You could nibble a doughnut or something:-D

Dougnut has milk + eggs in!

A pancake is one of the nicest things in the world!

It basically has everything you CANT eat if your lactose.

excuse my 'blondeness' :oops:
are you meaning BP as in 'British Petroleum'?
how are they seeing the continuation of pancake making?

PS i meant that people with fast lives now tend to buy 'aunt bessies' instead of taking the time to make some thenselves :thinking:

Aunty Bessie's maybe for other days but never on Pancake day itself. Who would think of such a thing - worse than not having gravy with your Yorkshire pud. (Now A.bessie's does some good frozen Yorkshires !!)

So, I felt guilty - a bit;-) - for nothing?
Is it true? Do doughnuts have milk and eggs? Are you a recipe expert or advisor to the L/I? How come you mentioned L/I and not diabetics? Did you really think your comment through before posting? Answers please on a fold out multi-coloured paper plate to attach to the fridge with double stick-backed sticky stuff.:-D
#24
1. Yes.
2. Yes
3. No comment
4. Because diabetics can still eat it, it's just bad for them.
5. Was I meant to?
6. Please send me £0.49p for first class postage.

Must go now and make some pancakes from basic, but potentially life-threatening, ingredients, on which I have spent every last penny. :giggle:
#26
So you don't want the paper plate :(?

No thanks for the paper plate, because you already gave me the answers.:giggle::giggle:
See how clever my interrogation technique was?:)

use a slightly smaller frying pan and a bit more mixture :)

just got back from my mothers............hmmmmm..........not how i remembered them :cry:
might have been something to do with having to share them with my kids though and not having a LARGE stack to myself :whistling:
