... every supermarket has vast displays of ready to mix pancake batters, lines of spatulas, displays of frying pans, lemons by the kilo.  I'm sick to death of  the sight of all of them.

I most definitely WILL NOT be eating any pancakes tonight.

Nope ... not even a gorilla shaped pancake will tempt me.


I was almost tempted this morning when I read Dominic's blog post over at Belleau Kitchen, as I have the ingredients, they fit in well with me trying to avoid flour for a while and with my post on the NutriBullet yesterday... but NO ....


... not even if they smile at me!!


I'm all pancaked out ;-)

  5. I've managed to miss all the consumerism bit of pancake day, only remembered yesterday! So long as I remember to get a lemon when I am out today i'll be having some for tea, sorry! x

  6. Not seen a big push for pancakes here, but then I don't visit shop very often and the magazine I get dosent really cover that sort of thing, as I don't follow religion I wont be joining in with Shrove Tuesday but those that do I hope they have a good one. :-)

    1. I bet the vast majority of people won't even know the religious significance behind Shrove Tuesday, it's just been another thing hijacked by commercialisation.

  7. We're having pancakes for dinner tonight, but they'll be savoury ones, stuffed with minced lamb!
    I saw Dominic's recipe last night, and as there was one lonely squishy banana in the fruit bowl and blueberries in the fridge, I had banana pancakes for breakfast this morning, and very nice they were too! I don't have a nutribullet, so the batter was wizzed up with a stick blender. I made them thick, like scotch pancakes, they took moments to make and were a lovely change from a bowl of cereal or a couple of poached eggs!

  8. We have them any time of the year in all shapes/sizes/flours..but seeing them pushed in the shops et all is a bit off-putting!

    1. That's the best way to eat them, when you actually fancy them .... not when everyone and his aunty are having them because they have been told to and don't even know why!!

  11. No!!! It's the law that you make pancakes on pancake day!

  12. Sue, I do like pancakes, but too much of them makes me a bit nauseous...probably all the sugar. I made blueberry muffins for breakfast this morning.

  13. I think everything is overdone these days. We're Christmassed out by November, I was sick of love hearts long before Valentines Day and we're surrounded by Easter in January!! Now it's Mothering Sunday stuff! No wonder I'm confused about what's happening when. It all seems to start earlier and earlier and goes on for ages, all 'special events' merging together.

  14. I love pancakes but I baked cookies today for some visitors and will have pancakes another day as I'm out tonight! I walked into my local asda this morning and was greeting by a display of pancakes mix bottles and various other "necessities" it seems people need nowadays! I can't believe it! There are few things that are easier than making your own pancake batter from scratch! Is it just me?

  15. Oh no! We had pancakes (potato) yesterday, they are my husbands favourite. We don't hear or see anything about Pancake Tuesday here. My mum used to make them for us, years ago, when we all still lived at home. If someone saw you putting lemon juice and sugar on pancakes here they would think you were very weird. We have butter and maple syrup, or any kind of fruit syrup-just not on savoury ones!! Yesterday will have to do as we are not having them two days in a row! We actually prefer waffles to pancakes (the sweet ones).

  16. Must admit, I enjoyed scoffing mine tonight :)

  17. From Margie in Toronto - I'm saving up the pancake calories until Friday. A friend is meeting me for lunch and we always head to a small restaurant around the corner from my office - one order of peameal bacon and one order of gorgeous blueberry pancakes and then we split everything - can't wait. I would normally have pancakes more often, for supper as well as breakfast but since I eat them with real maple syrup I try to limit consumption.

Sorry but I have added word verification to try and curtail the unprecedented amount of spammers recently posting comments. I will try this rather than stop Anonymous Users commenting for the time being to see if this will solve the problem. Thank you for your patience.
