Pancake Day

I was reading on one of my message boards that Mardi Gras is also known as Pancake Day in some places. It is a day to use up all of your rich foodstuffs because tomorrow begins Lent. Pancakes are a great way to use up your mild, eggs, sugar and other yummy treats. Cara had a couple of friends spend the night, so making pancakes the next morning was a great breakfast idea. I made some plain and some with chocolate chips. You can guess which ones went first. My plan was to take a picture of of the pancakes cooking, on the plate ready to eat, or of the girls enjoying their breakfast. I didn't have the time since I was like the Little Red Hen around here and no one showed up until it was time to eat. I forgot to take a picture after that and only remembered when it was time to do the dishes. They were good and were quickly done. We might need to do Pancake Day around here more often.

We celebrate Paczki Day--which is a Polish donut. So, while we didn't have pancakes, we did have Paczki! YUM!
