Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, Pancake Tuesday, it is all pancakes.
And somerville kitchen, ready to give up any white and/or creamy food, indulged in pancakes tonight.
Creative thinking is always in abundance at somerville kitchen.
While the base is nothing than Aunt Jemima's mix, a beautiful apple turned into chunks and added to the mix made all the difference.
The grill got busy.
Pork sausages and steak chunks from Windsor Quality Meats (4110 Main St); eggs from my lumberjack; and the lovely apple-chunky pancakes.
Hunger overtook design. And to fit enough on the grill, pancake shapes went crazy.
Despite the shapes, all was tasty and indulging.
So what I won't be able to eat from here the next 40 days? The eggs (white), the pancakes (white flour and milk); hmmm, guess it will be a high protein diet as I double up on sausages and steaks.
