Pancake Pandemonium for Mardi Gras / Fat Tuesday

By Ole & Shaina Olmanson |

It’s Fat Tuesday, the last night of eating rich and fatty foods before Lent starts tomorrow on Ash Wednesday. Pancakes and sugary breads, doughnuts and pastries are commonly eaten on Fat Tuesday to use up the last of the butter, eggs and sugar before going into Lent when those things were often given up as part of the fasting for the season.

Join the celebration, mix up some pancake batter and sit down to a sweet meal of pancakes. There are many to choose from, and we have more than a few ways you can get in on the Mardi Gras action from Dutch Babies to crepes to the traditional buttermilk variety.

Trivia: “Mardi Gras” is French for “Fat Tuesday.”
