As the Lunar New Year is about to dawn, it’s Shrove or ‘Pancake’ Tuesday also!
Will pancakes be on your menu sometime today?!?!…
Use up all your eggs, milk & sugar before the fasting of Lent, was the origin of this tradition, as Lent commences with tomorrow’s ‘Ash Wednesday’.
Mix a Pancake
BY CHRISTINA ROSSETTI
Mix a pancake,
Stir a pancake,
Pop it in the pan;
Fry the pancake,
Toss the pancake—
Catch it if you can.
Now that Pancake Day has come,
Flipping pancakes is such fun.
First crack eggs into a bowl;
Whisk them briskly for us all.
Sprinkle flour nice and white;
Add some milk to make it right.
Make the batter thick not runny;
Tasty pancakes for my tummy.
Cook it in a frying pan;
Flip and catch it if you can.
Flipping pancake’s on the floor;
Oops I missed: I’ll make some more.
Flipping pancakes, I have found
Less fun, second time around.
Never mind, let’s flip once more;
Flipping heck – it’s on the floor.
Third time lucky – hope it works;
Still that sinking feeling lurks.
Flip that pancake; yes- you’ve guessed:
On the floor with all the rest.
Flipping pancakes – what a pain.
Flipping pancakes; not again.
Flipping pancakes – go away;
Come again next Shrove Tuesday.
Cheers to a terrific Tuesday-lighthearted that has you (where appropriate) singin’—I’m being flippant!!!
