Today is Shrove Tuesday, so time to enjoy some yummy foods before Lent begins tomorrow.
Shrove Tuesday is, of course, part of Shrovetide, something that was celebrated by Tudor people.
Here’s a video I did with Teasel the dog on Shrovetide…
And here’s a video of the best pancake chef I know – my husband, Tim – making Tudor-inspired pancakes:
Recipe for Tim’s Tudor inspired pancakes

Do you have pancakes on Shrove Tuesday?
