Today is pancake day in Britain. Kitchens across the UK will have adventurously flipped pancakes on the walls, ceilings and floors. Pancake day races will be held (I was supposed to take part in one but it was rained off - how British is that!). I know this sounds very strange to transatlantic cousins who have pancakes whenever they feel like flippin them! However I am going to eschew the traditional lemon and sugar or strawberry jam on tonight's pancakes and make them more international. With this in mind: what's the best pancake topper in your mind?

(Be aware though that I may not have any idea what it is you are suggesting. It took many, many posts for you all to describe to me what a) smores were, then b) graham crackers. And I am still not sure I understood).


What would you do if you were not afraid?

Well, it's hard to figure out the BEST, but we love:

real maple syrup; it has to be the REAL stuff for us or fuhgetaboutit!

We love enjoy lightly sweetened stewed apples or peaches or cherries.

Those are OUR favorites, but I'm sure others will give you theirs.

Something tells me that most people on here are having a special dinner today. Would you care to show me a photograph, and describe the dishes?

6 Tablespoons Butter, cut into pieces
1/4 cup Pure Maple Syrup [used sugar free]
Dash Of Salt

I am pretty sure from prior experience that Prisca has an emotional need for butternut squash.

BTW, butternut squash is great in chili! laugh
