Since today is Shrove Tuesday, I could not let the day pass without sharing my family's great love of pancakes with you!! Even as a little girl - it was such a treat to have pancakes for breakfast and my mom would make pancake animals for my brothers and me! Or they were encouraging us to create our own animals out of the pancakes before we ate them! So when I recently saw this picture of these elaborate pancake animals - I just had to share it with you!!
And now that I am grown, cooking pancakes happens to be my husband's specialty! He takes great pride in his pancakes and they are each made with a measure of love!
We love to add in fresh blueberries when they are in season!
In fact, pancakes are what Al made for our daughter, Erin, for her last meal in the US - the summer she was leaving to travel around the world for a whole year doing missions. She could have had anything and what did she request? Her daddy's pancakes, of course!
If we MUST eat pancakes anywhere other than our kitchen, we love Cracker Barrel's Pecan Pancakes as a special treat! They are wonderful!!
Basically - We FLIP over pancakes!! How about you?
