Fat Tuesday..Shrove Tuesday..National Pancake Day

Today is Shrove Tuesday, or fat Tuesday, a day of indulgence. It is always the day before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten season, traditionally known as a time of abstinence.

I read pancakes were served on this day because they contained the fat, and yummy goodness, that would be forbidden during Lent.

Well, heck, I like fat, yummy goodness...and because it's National Pancake Day, Fat Tuesday and Shrove Tuesday all rolled into one, I gave up my gluten free diet and INDULDGED!
