I employed to make pancakes one particular at a time on Shrove Tuesday, though everybody sat and waited.
It took hours and the kids would get fidgety though waiting .
It quickly became clear I had to believe of an additional way.
So, that is how I came to be cooking 24, 30 + pancakes every single Shrove Tuesday immediately after that, till most of the kids left house.
I could then take the warm pancakes, which I’d cooked earlier, to the table and sit with them and chat – a lot improved.
I place the child to sleep.
It is practically two
No time for a cuppa
I’ve pancakes to do
Come and enable me tiny man
You nevertheless have to have the stool
you happen to be only 3
right here beat these eggs
in the flour for me
We’ll quickly have them in the pan
Let mum have a go
give your arms a break
let’s maintain it in the bowl
How extended will it take
just a bit of milk rapidly as we can
Frying pan is hot
you will have to go and play
let mum get on
Or we’ll take all day
And we’ll not be prepared for nan
By half previous 3
we have twenty 4
maintaining hot in the oven
to feed my hungry clan
They all rush in just prior to 4, with their nan trailing behind them
She’s picked them up for me now so I could make the pancakes
“Up to the table” – she offers the order, in a quite severe tone
The six of them rush to take their seats, no time at all it requires.
They wait for the prayer prior to they start and then their nan relates
the purpose we have pancakes on Shrove Tuesday every single year
as with tasty goodness they pile up their plates
Some attain for the lemon and sprinkle spoonfuls of sugar
Other people are interested extra in the chocolate, spreading it thickly,
And one particular prefers the strawberry jam thinly spread more than a hot pancake.
