Oh what sweet memories. Every good Irish home made pancakes for tea; the main meal on Tuesday before Ash Wednesday - beginning of Lent.
I have big memories of a smoke filled kitchen with the pan on the range and the pancakes more or less flying from the pan to the table! With nine mouths to feed it was just like a production line.
All decorated up with lots of butter and sugar.............no fancy syrups etc!
Delicious but what a mess, melted butter all over your hands and sugar all over the table but lots of laughter around the table.
A thoroughly memorable family meal.
Enjoy your pancakes today BUT keep it simple!
