We’ll Always Have Pancakes isn’t Friday. And it never will be.

Tuesday Weld (Susan Ker Weld) legally changed her name in 1959. She was born on a Friday. While filming Wild in the Country (1961) Weld was professionally and personally involved with Elvis. Elvis died at 42, on Tuesday August 16, 1977. There are those that believe otherwise…

Tuesday is thankful it’s not Monday; people seem to really hate Monday.

Ruby Tuesday, the classic hit by The Rolling Stones was originally titled, Title B. Hmmm, would a chain of restaurants called themselves Title B ?

People are allegedly the least ‘frisky’ on Tuesdays.

October 29, 1929, also known as Black Tuesday, when the New York Stock Exchange crashed, signalling the beginning of The Great Depression, which may have been badly named.

Tuesday June 6, 1944, D-Day. Allied forces landed on the beaches of Normandy, France to liberate Nazi-controlled Europe.

If You Give a Pig a Pancake by Laura Numeroff, illustrated by Felicia Bond is one is a series of children’s books that teaches cause and effect. The usual effect for me? When reading it to my son, I wanted pancakes.

Tuesday is allegedly the most productive day of the work week. If you’re reading this at work, that may not be true.

Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, Pancake Tuesday – all the same day. Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent for many Christians. Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras is a time to celebrate and feast on foods not allowed during the austerity of Lent, most of which are rich in fat…now I’m drooling at the thought of pancakes. Even if people don’t observe Lent, many celebrate Pancake Tuesday or Fat Tuesday.

Here’s one of my favourite pancake recipes:

½ cup flour (your choice)
1 ½ cups of oatmeal
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
Mix together lightly in a large bowl.
Add 1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sour milk (you can make milk sour by adding 1 tsp vinegar)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 large egg
Mix gently and cook with a small amount of butter/olive oil mixture to grease the pan.

Garnish to taste and enjoy!

  1. I don’t know many people that don’t eat or don’t like pancakes. Oh well, we all have problems. The sour milk with a spoonful of vinegar might be better achieved by buying butter-milk, I don’t know about baking powde either.
    In any case, my grandkids only come over if I make pancakes, so there!


      1. I understand. Today I have a daunting task, so I keep telling myself, you can do this, but it still feels overwhelming. At least we can find people to make things less so. 🙂


    1. Glad to have found you all and the lovely yummies ideas, because that’s what I need, more ways to make food delicious. 😉
      Hope this day is treating you kindly. 🙂


  2. Pancakes are wonderful! 😀 I love them, but am terribly ungifted at making them look pretty, haha. These look delicious! :] Thanks for linking up with us!


  3. I loved this history lesson and I can’t imagine eating my pancakes and listening to a song Title B. I was just given that book if you give a mouse a cookie now I want pancakes! I’m going to make them for dinner using your recipe. Thanks D for the great post. 😃


  4. Donna, pancakes kept popping into my head all day, now I see this. This just might be one of those pancakes-for-dinner days because why put off till breakfast tomorrow what you can have for dinner today? This recipe will make a nice change from my usual.


  5. We just had pancakes for dinner the other night. And we will probably have some again on Tuesday, and cajun food for dinner with donuts for dessert. That should tide us over for the Ash Wednesday fast. ha ha!

    Thanks for partying with us!
