Pancake Day!

12 02 2013

Busy, busy weekend.

Snowshoe Grind Mountain Run on Saturday; Callaghan Valley “Grand Day Out” snowshoeing on Sunday; Snowshoe Grind up Grouse Mountain again yesterday (in the low cloud – very slow going) because Number Two Child wanted to see what all the fuss was about. It was Family Day in BC, and Grouse Mountain had made most things half price. Despite initial appearances, I was assured the offer was available to non-Asian families. It was a pleasure to see so many recent immigrants like myself enjoying what Greater Vancouver has to offer.

After all that (no blisters though – that’s good!) I lost the princely total of 2lb. That’s nigh on a kilogram, so I’ll take it thank-you very much.

All that just to say that today is Shrove Tuesday. Pancake Day! We like them thin and large – crepe style. Not thick and spongy, North American style. Either way… they’re not exactly conducive to weight loss, so I think I’ll treat this year’s Pancake Day as a spectator sport.

Enjoy yours!

Well, perhaps the pancakes aren’t up to your tastes that side of the pond. But at least you’re unlikely to run out of maple syrup!

True enough! And it really is maple syrup, not some blend of corn sugar, caramel flavouring and god-knows-what (horse meat?) – “Aunt Jemima” would spin in her grave if she was real.
I confess I did succumb to a couple of pancakes in the end… with proper Tate&Lyle treacle from a tin and lime juice…
