Happy Shrove Tuesday!

Happy Shrove Tuesday everyone!  I always used to call it Fat Tuesday, but while I was in England for a year, I experienced Shrove Tuesday instead.  While it seems Americans go all-out crazy on Fat Tuesday, the Brits celebrated the beginning of Lent with a nice, but indulgent pancake dinner.  The "pancakes" that were served were actually much lighter than American pancakes, similar to crepes.  They were filled with sugar and lemon juice, fruit and chocolate. 

Is anyone else going to be having pancakes or crepes for dinner tonight?  These banana nutella ones would be sure to quench my nutella craving.
