Happy Mardi Gras!

Today is Shrove Tuesday. Wouldn't it be great to have an RGBP traditional Shrove Tuesday Pancake race? That's where you run with a frying pan and have to flip your pancake several times while racing to the finish line. If you drop the pancake, you're disqualified.
I wonder if anyone is doing that anymore?

Grace, I don't want to run with a frying pan! I remember going to Shrove Tuesday Pancake Suppers at the Episcopal church as a little girl. I don't know if this is done anymore or not. I think the purpose was to have a meatless meal.

Oh, pancake suppers almost always include a little sausage for protein (pancakes also use up the fat, for Fat Tuesday).

I've got my beads on, and I'm taking some to work. Mardi Gras was a big deal in St. Louis, so I'm spreading the beads in OKC. Happy Mardi Gras!

At our southern UCC church, the old men make pancakes for us for Shrove Tuesday. So Protestant! I am making a Lenten area at home, but I can't find a small cactus to put there. Maybe you RevGals could suggest your favorite lenten readings to us lay people.
