Anyone else slaving over a hot stove, churning out pancakes this evening?

Yes! I am done, kitchen is now closed.

Kids had ice cream and chocolate sauce on theirs and I had lemon on mine. I feel like a stuffed pig.

Re: Shrove Tuesday

No, don't do pancakes unless they come ready made. And didn't even know it was Shrove Tuesday.

Depends on the town.

We are Ambrosian, neighbors Roman, so, yes, shorter lent, but 6 weeks of Advent!

Also parts of northern Italy are Ambrosian, in particular Milan.
