Shrove Tuesday Blueberry Pancakes

So what do you know about Mardi Gras and Shrove Tuesday?

Well Wikipedia says that Shrove Tuesday is "widely associated with the eating of foods such as pancakes, and often known simply as Pancake Day, originally because these used up ingredients such as fat and eggs, the consumption of which was traditionally restricted during Lent."

So we made them. We cooked them like silver dollars...

And with blueberries that we threw in one by one from far distances...

And we topped them with whipped cream and butter and syrup and sprinkles in celebration of Mardi Gras. And we drank orange juice with them and the orange juice might have had some Malibu Rum in it... it's hard to say.

So... we had a better breakfast than you. It was quite the Mardi Gras Brunch before we headed to the levee for some football throwing.
