Today is Pancake Day!

We've done this in my house growing up since I can remember and I love doing it now for my family. Pancake night is a big deal - pancakes for supper? You cannot get more fun than syrup on the table at supper time.

My mom used to carry on a tradition from her mom, and I don't know where it goes from there - but she would hide money, her wedding ring, other random things in the pancakes - and based on what you found it was like a fortune to determine who you would marry, or what you were going to be when you grow up. Crazy choking hazard, but it was so fun as a little girl to find them. It probably comes from the charm cakes from Victorian days - I can't find any other information online about anyone else doing this.

Anyhow to amp up the fun factor in my house I just add chocolate chips.  However over the weekend I had delish pancakes that were topped with sliced banana and toasted pecans... now that was yummy!
