IHOP proclaimed that today is National Pancake Day but in our house the Tuesday before Lent was always Shrove Tuesday. It was great fun as kids to have breakfast at dinner and I think we understood we could eat as much as we wanted because the next day Lent began.
Many people will be heading to IHOP because they are giving away free short stacks of pancakes in exchange for a donation to the Children's Miracle Network. I think I'll eat oatmeal pancakes at home and donate online. Now get back to work!
