Happy Pancake Day!

To all my American peeps out there who may not have heard yet…

It’s Pancake Day over in the UK!
*pause to acknowledge my clever use of rhyming before 7am*

Also known as Shrove Tuesday…or the day before Lent.
(for more info, click here)

Now, I’m fully aware that I don’t live in the UK, I’m not Catholic, and I JUST celebrated Pancake Sunday two days ago, but c’mon…you can’t expect me (The Pancake Queen) to turn down a chance to wake up early and make pancakes instead of going to the gym!

I may have beat off the crowds at the gym tonight when I get off work, but believe me…

It was worth it!

Pumpkin Peanut Flour Pancakes topped with leftover Cashew Cream Icing and thawed frozen raspberries!

And the “recipe” couldn’t be simpler:

1 serving just-add-water pancake mix…this one is my favorite!

1/4 cup peanut flour

1/4 cup pumpkin puree

sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice

Did you/are you celebrating Pancake Day today?

Are you giving up anything for Lent?
Like I said, I’m not Catholic or anything, but I have given up things for Lent in the past just as kind of a test of my willpower. One year I gave up chocolate…that’s the year I found out cocoa is in red velvet cake! Lol

I’ll have to do some thinking today and decide if I’ll be doing it this year.

Hope you all have a fantastic FAT Tuesday!

Now go make some pancakes!
