Pancake (Shrove) Tuesday!

shrovepancake3

Today is Shrove Tuesday, the day before the Lenten season begins. In England, they feast on pancakes on Pancake Tuesday, a tradition I much enjoy. In honor of Pancake Tuesday, the girls and I devoured pancakes this morning. I thought I'd share my favorite pancake recipe with blueberry compote. 

I can't wait for blueberry picking season to come around again this year. I'm hoping Maggie will be up for visiting the blueberry picking farm with Molly & I. Until then, our leftover frozen blueberries are keeping summer alive at our breakfast table. 

Happy Shrove Tuesday!
