mtbc: maze B (white-black)
The end of Shrovetide is upon us and [personal profile] mst3kmoxie kindly made us pancakes: the usual British kind like French crêpes rather than American pancakes. These simple items are a culinary highlight of my year. I especially like to combine them with lemon and sugar and this evening I used also some golden syrup and sliced banana.

Traditionally this is a time for reflecting upon one's sinful ways to prepare for Lent and its fasting and similar. I wonder about Yom Kippur with its similar reflection and fasting and if there is some relatively luxurious food customarily eaten before or after those Jewish days of repentance. Perhaps not: after all, while Diwali may often come with nice food, I am not aware of any broad tradition of that involving specific foods.
