A week ago we celebrated Shrove Tuesday/Mardi Gras, the day before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. Pancake Day is huge here in the UK with displays at the grocery stores and even a tasting last night as we walked into Tescos!
I had originally planned to do pancakes with breakfast sausages and maple syrup. But we found a Forest Berries Coulis that sounded delicious, so picked up raspberries and blueberries to pair with.
I juiced some oranges for mimosas and sliced some up for our plates. Cut up some kiwi and we were set! I recently found my new favorite pancake recipe ever at Oh Sweet Basil, and they don’t need any help being delicious!
We enjoyed a fabulous and simple meal as we got ready for the season of Lent. I’m looking forward to see what growth occurs as we center ourselves a bit more and reflect on life during this season!
