Celebrate Pancake Tuesday

Today is traditionally known as Shrove Tuesday or Fat Tuesday.  It is the day preceding Ash Wednesday which marks the beginning of Lent.  (Read more about it here.)  In some countries it is also called Pancake Tuesday because of the tradition of eating pancakes for dinner.  So how about serving your family a yummy meal of homemade pancakes for dinner tonight?  Who doesn't love breakfast for dinner?
