This is the second year running that I only remembered it was Pancake Tuesday after I'd had my dinner. Damn - I love pancakes. We used to have them mainly with sugar and lemon at home, but I like to invent all kinds of varieties and a favourite was bananas and cream.
I did have wholemeal tortillas for my dinner though, does that count instead? They are pancake shaped, at least. My son had left some refried beans in the fridge after staying for the weekend. He'd been caring for the dog while I was swanning around Berlin (well, it was bloody freezing so swanning isn't exactly the right word for it!), so I decided to use them up with some salad and salsa in the tortillas.
I suppose Shrove Tuesday was never too much of an issue for me 'diet-wise' - you can make pancakes pretty low-calorie and low-fat if you try, so I just made sure I did. Now of course, when I remember to have them, I just make them delicious. No faffing around trying to make one that doesn't count too much as actual food.
Anyhow, for missing out last night I'm going to plan to have a pancake weekend instead. And that may have to include Nutella.
EDIT: I haven't missed Pancake Day - I have just been informed it's not until March! So I'll have in March and probably this weekend as well... :-)
