Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday


Looks Like South America to Me

I won’t be selling this pancake on ebay.  It is not a religious experience but there are a ton of items out there claiming to see a lot of different images in food.  This one just looked like South America To me.  Pancakes in Columbus OH. The kids ate it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Everyday Life

Everyday life.

Selected a dozen shots for this Weekly Photo Challenge. The photographer who created this challenge,  Jon Sanwell, suggests walking around and shooting people in a variety of settings throughout the day. One of my decisions was to mix it up, peopled and unpeopled shots but the trace of humanity in the unpeopled shots.

What I documented-

Walk the dogs, cook breakfast, make coffee, catch the school bus, sit in traffic,  run out of milk and go to the market, home repairs (thanks to Andy’s father’s screws and nails collection in her basement ceiling)feed the dog, put out the trash, buy a lottery ticket, gather with the family,dine with friends.  Everyday life can be so fine.

When to Turn the Pancakes Over

You wait until the bubbles start and edge looks like it is starting to get a bit dry. The center set.  Tradition to eat pancakes the day before Lent.  Growing up and living next door to the church in the rectory, you remember stuff like the Pancake Suppers in the undercroft (what they called the church basement).  Everywhere now you hear Mardi Gras for Fat Tuesday but not so much about Shrove Tuesday.  And of course the IHOP just claims it is Pancake Day as if they invented the tradition.

Pancakes

Flapjacks
Silver Dollars
Short Stack.
Real maple syrup from the jug.
Butter.

Made this batch for the grandchildren in Columbus on Saturday morning.
