Shrove Tuesday and the French Crepe

We typically do pancakes every Sunday.  That is Dan's morning to do breakfast for the kids. He loads us up with pancakes before heading out the door to church each week.  This is one reason we choose not to do the standard pancake for Shrove Tuesday.  We make crepes with fruit and whipped cream and a breakfast meat on the side.  I use a recipe I picked up in culinary school but it is very similar to the one shared in this video and this video is a great one.  Joy of Baking is one of my favorite sites and if you have not visited there before I thought you might enjoy their videos and recipes.

Take a look and have a great Shrove Tuesday!

*note - Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday and Pancake Day are all precursors to Lent.... any reason for pancakes seems to be a good one.  LOL  Want more info on the holiday?  Check out this link.
