Grams Ramblings: Pancakes


5th Mar 2019

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. 

Pancake Day

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

We’ll quickly have them in the pan

Let mum have a go

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.
