It’s Pancake Day at our HOME

Shrove Tuesday, or if you are French, Mardi Gras, meaning Fat Tuesday. Either way it is the Tuesday before the first day of Lent. It is the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of Lent.

But is is also PANCAKE DAY! PANCAKE Tuesday. We have ALWAYS  celebrated Pancake Day since our kids were little. I still do all this fun stuff as you can see from the last few posts, and my family is all grown up.

James and David sometimes say it is just “Blog Fodder” so I have something to write about, and maybe there is truth in that BUT I KNOW they all like the special food and treats! It helps with the Winter blahs… 😛 (Even Andrew enjoyed a treat bag of cookies and mini cheese cakes.)

So in honour of Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras and PANCAKE DAY…Guess what we had for supper?

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
