Mmmm pancake tuesday how do I love thee....

Although pancake has different meanings. A pancake to me is a deliciously light thin crispy at the edges piece of heaven, the object is to barely coat the surface of the frying pan with the lightest of batter. This does not make it a crepe!! A pancake to others is a more doughy cakey concoction. Some even buy those prepackaged just add milk/water and shake malarkies. No no no. I suppose its all about what you grew up eating, if you ate the doughy cake thing then of course its going to be preferable to my delicious version.

My preferred way of adorning my crispy piece of heaven is once you have flipped your pancake place three squares of fine quality chocolate (cadburys in a pinch)on one side then flip the other side over omlette style and place this deliciousness gently on a plate. Then to top it off pour golden syrup (not maple, much as I love it I feel it clashes with the chocolate gooeyness, if you want maple syrup may I suggest serving it alongside some fine quality vanilla ice cream with crushed pecan nuts sprinkled on top) on top of this and devour immediately (ha like your gonna wait). Owning to the decadence of this gorgeousness I can only manage two at a time before the sugar ehadache starts (and my arteries close) but I encourage you to try for lucky number three!

Which brings me to lent, now I usually give up something every year with the exception of 2007. So I put it to you, gentle lovely sweet nice reader what should I give up? Sweets, Chocolate, crisps, oxo cubes (sob) or somkething of your own making? I'll go with the majority (and will quite possible cuss you out here as the withdrawal symptoms kick in)

*Sweet cake in Irish, I don't like the bastardised Pancog!

I don't really have any suggestions, because nearly every year I give up the same thing - coffee. I've given up chocolate a couple of times (one year, I failed miserably - thanks to the engagement trip), fast food (anything with a drive-thru counts), and tea (that was a mistake - I drank coffee instead!), but coffee is my go-to. Coffee is one thing that I have all the time, without thinking about it. It's something that I miss terribly, and really enjoy once Easter comes along.

What have you given up in the past?

I don't really drink tea or coffee (shocking I know an irish person not addicted to tea) so thats no hardship. In the past I have given up all that I've mentioned on the blog, mainly sweets when I was a kid. Along the same lines as yourself I think failure will come the second weekend of march when I am going away with friends for a bit of a drinking holiday hmmmm...

Hmmm that link didn't work for me, this is the stuff I'm talkin about ooh yeah http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OXO_cube

They are delicious and although I am an outcast from my friends and some family members because of this, I do enjoy a nice oxo cube every now and again eaten like a sweet but it is a rare treat owing to the vast quantities of salt.

I try to be practical about what I give up. I won't give up soda or desserts because I'd be miserable in the process and take it out on other people. I don't drink enough coffee or eat enough chocolate to give those up. I have attempted fast food but failed miserably.

This year I am attempting a huge feat for me: I am giving up extraneous spending. I'm going to post more on what that means for me.

Um well, I'm a big cheaty infidel so I would give up something I didn't really like anyway. :)

I am in the same boat. I don't know what to give up. So, instead, I might do something extra like be more positive or only say nice things during lent. Hmm, that doesn't sound like much fun though!

I'm giving up cheese this year. Something I crave, but something I can avoid. :)

I have never given up anything for lent, as I have never been Christian.

However, I think your style of pancake sounds far more delicious than the thick, doughy pancakes that are standard in the US.
