# 47b of 365 - Shrove Tuesday


Shrove Tuesday in Merry Ole England and Fat Tuesday or Pancake Day (for the secular) in the US of A and Mardi Gras to the French speaking populations of the world. I would include other names for this day, but as my heritage is British and French, and I was born in America, I think these will suffice. I think It is the day and evening to clear your larder of all the goodies in anticipation of the fasting period that is Lent. Lent is a period of reflection and penitence in preparation for the celebration of Easter, when the Light returns to the world.

In anticipation and celebration of this quiet period coming upon us, Erin and I are having Pumpkin Pancakes and Maple Cured Bacon for the Supper...

Herewith, the photos to prove it...
