Pancakes

Today, if you’re religious (particularly towards the Anglo-Christian end of the spectrum), it’s Shrove Tuesday, the day before Lent begins – and a time when people like to stuff their faces with the things they’re soon be giving up. It’s commonly known as pancake Tuesday, for reasons I’ll never quite understand. That said, it’s a day when many enjoy eating pancakes – or, rather the sorts of things we (and people in the UK) like to call pancakes, which are really closer to being crepes.  If you’re not religious, it’s just a good excuse to stuff pancakes in yer gob, innit?

Commonly eaten with sugar, perhaps cinnamon and a liberal bit of lemon juice, I prefer my pancakes filled with savoury fillings; mince, chicken and mushrooms, spinach and ricotta or well anything really, as long as it goes in my face.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
