We feasted on these beauties for dinner -- Rachel's delicious buckwheat pancakes. We also enjoyed a platterful of my personal favorites -- Bill Granger's ricotta hotcakes. We ate and ate and ate and ate . . . Jams, applesauce, lavender honey, and the requisite maple syrup graced these delicious disks as we feasted to the tunes of Al Hirt and his famous Dixieland flair.
As Gary forked the last pancake onto his plate I recalled Pooh Bear's sage advice:
When having a smackerel of something with a friend,
Don't eat so much
That you get stuck
In the doorway trying to get out.
I would have done well to remember that before eating SIX pancakes!
Hope you enjoyed your Mardis Gras or Shrove Tuesday or Carnivale or Shrovetide or FAT TUESDAY.
Mine was definitely FAT TUESDAY!
