Our Shrove Tuesday




Shrove Tuesday:
the day before Ash Wednesday. Though named for its former religious significance, it is chiefly marked by feasting and celebration, which traditionally preceded the observance of the Lenten fast.

We had a wonderful evening with our friends, our daughter, her fella. Lots of laughter and terrific crepes.

  1. How lovely--the pictures are so inviting. I like the idea of celebrating with family, food, and friends any time, but before Lent there is even more significance.

  2. Thanks for commenting Jenclair- it was just such a nice time. You should have seen how many crepes the man made. There were piles of them! It is a tradition at their house each "Pancake" Tuesday.
