Pancake Day

Traditionally called Shrove Tuesday, Pancake day symbolises the start of Lent.
Lent is the period in the Christian calender when Christians focus their thoughts on preparing themselves for the forth coming Easter period.
Pancakes were traditionally a good way to use up all the "good things" leaving only basic rations and thus inducing self denial.
Tonight I shall be enjoying lemon and sugar!!

I wouldn't have eaten the 2 pieces of lemon pudding cake this morning if I knew. Shame ;)
