  4. Did you know that one of the traditional dishes for Shrove Tuesday in the Russian Orthodox tradition is blini? I wanted to make some this year, but with my schedule this semester, it just wasn't happening. *sigh*

    Maybe next year.

  5. I work right next door to an IHOP and the news crew was outside reporting on it! I didn't realize pancake day was such a hit. :-)

  6. Yes, there is Duckie, yes there is...

    Glamah...I'm still dreaming about that Jollof Rice! and that Hibiscus Tea...

    T.W. I just had to indulge in chocolate chip pancakes. Not as elegant as yours but quite satisfying...

    I didn't know about the blini for Shrove Tuesday. I will save this tasty tidbit for future reference Adele. Thanks!

    I've never been to IHOP for Pancake Day Jenna but I hear it can become quite stacked early in the morning. Thanks for visiting...

  9. Hi Dennis,
    McDonald's! Are they real pancakes???

    hi acey,
    it has been a very busy week for some reason but i am fine. perhaps, you should look into some whole grain pancakes to aid in the recovery. i'm off to visit you today...

Through this wide opened gate,
none came to early,
none returned to late.

Thanks for dropping in...Louise
