I just learned about a new holiday--Pancake Day! It's apparently a celebration before Lent starts where people used up rich foods. Most European countries have a food they typically make ranging from pancakes or crepes to pastries, etc. Except for Estonia. . . apparently they eat split pea soup and go sledding (according to widipedia). . . so random! It is also known as Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras (I had heard of that last one-but that only brought me images of New Orleans and beads for some reason).
Here's how my roommates and I celebrated Pancake Day:
Blueberry Pancakes in the morningCrepes (or Croatian pancakes) in the afternoon (with chicken/cheese/spinach or banana/nutella). Michelle is once again refusing to be in a picture.German pancakes at night. (with some scrumptious blackberries and powdered sugar. Mmmm)
I think I like Pancake Day.
