Happy Shrove Tuesday—Pancake Day in England, since 1445! My cousin wonders whether the Lutherans will be having a lefse roll . . .
Read about the tradition below, and get into the act or at least make a little batch of pancakes, tossed or no. I like the looks of these Irish pancakes with apple and bacon, though my favorites (sorry, Dad, despite your childhood sourdough "Jefferson Airplanes" made in the shape of a simple plane) were the lemon and ricotta pancakes in Sonoma last fall. Here's one recipe for those.
