It’s one of my favorite days of the year – Shrove Tuesday! Tomorrow Lent begins and so we feast on delicious fats and carbs prior to our Ash Wednesday fast. Here is one of my favorite recipes for pancakes! Top it with strawberries and whipped cream, butter and syrup, or however you fancy! Enjoy!
Mardi Gras: The Food before Fasting
It’s the Tuesday before Lent which means it is Mardi Gras! Mardi Gras translates to Fat Tuesday. It’s the day we use up all of the fatty, sugary foods prior to the first day of Lent. For the next 40 days, we try our best to stay away from rich foods and to fast whenever possible. Different regions of the world have different ways to use up all of their fattening foods. Parish Giving wanted to share some of theirs!
