Happy Pancake Tuesday!

I had no idea of the origin of Pancake Day so I did a bit of research...this is what I found:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shrove_Tuesday

It even references our Newfie tradition of hiding coins, etc. inside the pancakes. That was always a lot of fun when we were kids.

Enjoy your yummy pancake supper (with molasses for me)!

I remembered that today was pancake day, but since I'm not a pastry fan I won't be eating it.

I had totally forgotten about pancake day - to be honest I haven't thought about it in years. Now the mom in me is thinking about the coins in those pancakes - how easy it would be for a little one to choke. lol. I don't think that I will ever follow my childhood tradition. Maybe I'm a party pooper or just overprotective but there won't be any coins in the pancakes at my house.
