Fat Tuesday/Shrove Day Pancakes

Happy Fat Tuesday or otherwise known as Shrove Tuesday.  It is tradition to eat pancakes on this day because it is the last day to indulge before fasting during the Lent season.  Pancakes are the perfect food to eat and indulge because they contain butter, eggs, flour, and of course you can add other sugary sweets to them.  Enjoy a nice big dinner tonight with one or more of these pancake recipes.
