So today is Pancake day. Who is making them?

Shrove Tuesday is a term used in Ireland, the United Kingdom, Canada[1] and Australia[2] for the day preceding the first day of the Christian season of fasting and prayer called Lent.

The word shrove is the past tense of the English verb shrive, which means to obtain absolution for one's sins by way of Confession and doing penance. Thus Shrove Tuesday gets its name from the shriving that English Christians were expected to do prior to receiving absolution immediately before Lent begins. Shrove Tuesday is the last day of "shrovetide", somewhat analogous to the Carnival tradition that developed separately in countries of Latin Europe. The term "Shrove Tuesday" is no longer widely known in the United States outside of Liturgical Traditions, such as the Lutheran, Episcopal, and Roman Catholic Churches. [3][4] Because of the increase in many immigrant populations and traditions since the 19th century "Mardi Gras" is much more widely-used.

Why make them when you can get them at IHOP for free!? All they ask is a small donation to Children's Miracle Network in return.

The American ones are too thick. I like the thin ones. Good though that the money from IHOP goes to charity.
