Fat Tuesday

Today is Fat Tuesday. It is the day before Ash Wednesday. In the Christian tradition, you are supposed to give up rich food for Lent. I am not sure how to adequately define rich food but I’m fairly certain the pancake is a perfect example. The goal of Fat Tuesday is to use all of the fat, sugar, and butter in the house to avoid temptation for the next 40 days. Just to be safe, eat some pancakes today. While you are at it, make some pancakes for somebody else too.
