Shrove Tuesday......

Don't forget to put on your apron and your bonnet and toss those pancakes in the time old tradition of Onley, Buckinghamshire where they have been pancake racing for 569 years.

You can't say you don't learn daft stuff on this blog can you:)

I'm trying out a new pancake recipe this year...oatmeal pancakes. They are the recipe for the month of February on my calendar. I've been staring at them for 28 days.

Take care:)


  1. Never heard of this pancake race before. It looks like fun and a tab bit silly. Are they really flipping those pancakes in the air?
    Enjoy your oatmeal pancakes, sounds yummy.

  2. Enjoy your pancakes - I will pass, thank you. Never been a fan.

  3. Every year I mean to make pancakes and every year I forget.
    Every year I mean to give up something for Lent and every year I know I am too selfish to give up anything. Every year I know I will eat too many Easter eggs and hot cross buns.
    Every year I know how predictable I am.

  4. Mary Ann, Hi I am Carol. I also am taking the beginners crazy quilt class with Kathy. I am looking forward to getting to know you ladies and enjoy making some pretties.

    Speaking of pretties your dolls are amazing. I am now a follower of yours.

  5. FORGOT pancake day :-) it's normally in February anyway, but well, that is another inch off the hips :-) x x x

  6. We always have pancakes on Shrove Tuesday and have made oatmeal ones too. First I've heard of a pancake race! Fun :)

  7. Pancake racing?? For 569 years?? You are a fountain of wisdom Mary Ann :O)


If you leave a comment and I don't respond it's because I didn't get an email notice. I don't know why this happens and I apologize in advance as I love to hear from you:)
