Is it really a year since we were last tossing the
caber pancakes with robust gay abandon …..??
Darrell and Nigel had planned to surprise me with a wonderful Shrove Tuesday feast of a pancake type nature, however things went very, very awry ……No matter how promising the pancake looked when the mixture first hit the pan, each and every one turned into an unholy disaster.
I hear the “shonky” frying pan got most of the blame ….. and a new one was hastily added to our Tesco online order, all be it, a little late.
But ……. it takes a lot to knock Darrell’s and Nigel’s inimitable spirits …
….. and the pancakes, after setting off ALL the fire alarms in Chateau Castle Greysquirrel, were duly plated up and smothered with lemon juice and squirty cream, although there was not a lot of nomming going on!
However it was a good time for both of to debate robustly what they were going to give up for Lent ….. before they finally decided on chocolate!
