Pancake Week

Shrove Tuesday (the day before Ash Wednesday) is interpreted as Pancake Day -- an opportunity to use up all the eggs, butter, and milk that would otherwise spoil during Lent. But since we usually make pancakes multiple times week (and occasionally multiple times a day), I thought I'd record the variety of pancakes consumed this week.

Tuesday morning: American pancakes with Nutella.

Cami's lunch: leftover pancake "sandwich" with Nutella (she purposely reserved two pancakes during breakfast for this purpose).

Supper: Scandinavian pancakes

Cami's Faith in God activity at church: English pancakes with strawberry filling.

Wednesday supper: German pancakes.

Friday breakfast: buckwheat pancakes (a favorite for Graham to make when he and I are the first ones up).

Saturday morning: Swedish pancakes with powdered sugar or strawberry glaze.

I didn't realize there were so many kinds of pancakes! Sounds wonderful!

So I have to ask: how is an American pancake different from an English one? (Is an English one more of a crepe?)

Many fond memories of German pancakes at your house!

That's one heck of a pancake week! Sounds scrummy! When I was growing up the only time we ever got pancakes was on pancake day. We never got them any other time at all. My own children got them often and for breakfast, and always, always when they had a friend to stay overnight.

I agree with Love Lorri's comments. It was fun reading what you did with the pancakes!
