Shrove Tuesday on 25th February. Day before Lent for all you God-bothering Romanist types So what will it be? Packet mix, made from scratch, bought ready made, thin crepes or fluffy American buttermilk ones? I will be doing the traditional crepe style pancake from scratch and if Grove Junior (senior) wants them I have a decent instant mix for the yank variety. Lemon & sugar, various flavours of syrup etc or possibly a scoop of decent vanilla ice cream.
