Pancake Tuesday

We discovered a new tradition here in the UK. Before the start of Lent the tradition is to finish off all the eggs, flour, and sugar in the pantry in the use of pancakes. So, every Tuesday before Ash Wednesday they celebrate their day by eating and tossing pancakes. There are even pancake races. So, of course we joined in the eating of pancakes topped with lemon juice and a bit of sugar. I think I would like to carry this tradition home with us.
