Now Listening: Yo La Tengo: And The Glitter Is Gone
Mood: Stuffed!

I am not one for pancakes; I’m more of an omelet person. But when the craving hits, it hits hard. Like today.

Of course, today is Fat Tuesday. But it is also known as Pancake (Shrove) Tuesday, in which, according to traditions, the ‘rich’ foods such as eggs, milk, and sugar were to be used up before the 40 days of Lent, and pancakes are a good way of using up the stuff before they get a chance to spoil. I am not religious in that sense, but I do recognize a good tradition when I see it.

Of course, this gives me the chance to eat bacon. Pancakes and bacon. Oh yeah.
