Super Fat Pancake Tuesday and all its Holiday Neighbors

We thought the holiday season was over January 1st, but it seems our little “shortest month of the year” has packed a pretty punch.

Not only is today Super Tuesday and Fat (Pancake) Tuesday, it’s Nutella Day too! :) Could there be any more happenings this week?!

As a matter of fact, yes. From Super Bowl Sunday on, February 2008 has had a lot in store and it’s not stopping there: Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday (the beginning of Lent), and Thursday marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year. Not to mention, Valentine’s Day is next week! And then, after all that, we even have a 29th day of February this year which is almost a holiday in itself. Am I missing something? Probably!

So in honor of all the hoopla, I thought I’d help out with the cooking.

    MMmm…pancakes. :-)

    Speaking of Valentine’s Day, now that we cook a lot, I forbid my boyfriend to book as at a restaurant on the day of because I don’t want to be a part of that. I requested a home-cooked meal. :-)

    Hey, I wanted to check the recipe for the tomato basil pasta and the cheese ravioli but I think there’s something wrong with your links at the bottom. Lent links all go to the enchilada, and the Valentine ones all go to the pasta. Just giving you a heads up on that. :-)
