    Shrove Tuesday? I awakened to looming dark clouds, drank coffee as I checked out "snow" (visible collected hail pellets) under my red camellia bush. I decided to photograph it and within ten minutes we had 1)a violent thunderstorm-downpour, with lightning 2)much more hail 3) a power outage and sudden clearing, with a huge rainbow over the mountain. All within half an hour.
    February in Marin!

    Now I think I WILL have some pancakes. With bluberries.

    I've never heard of Pancake Day. Where oh where have I been living?

    It's too late now for breakfast, just had some toast and jam, so perhaps I will try to have pancakes for dinner!

    cheers,
    Pim

    kudzu - we missed the hail in the city but all my marinite colleagues have been talking about it.

    Pim - dinner time is right time to eat them anyway - be sure to make English-style pancakes (like crepes, with white flour), rather than American style fluffy ones if you want to get into the true spirit of things.

    I made the family crepe recipe, with lovely (frozen) wild bluberries and creme fraiche. Maybe I will do sugar and lemon for supper!

    I'm covered in batter and feel a bit sick. I think I made too many.

    I cannot believe I ran out of milk and forgot to makes des crêpes! Another typical thing my mum always made at La chandeleur was beignets (very small crusty dougnuts, nothing similar to the ones we eat in the USA). I will have to do a late post on this and cook them. Sam, see what you did, I started cravings now! Mince alors!

    oops. I can't believe I forgot--my family always made pancakes on pancake day. Oh well, I suppose it's a good excuse to make pancakes in the middle of the week.
