"Shrove" must be Old English for "pancake" because half the churches around here are hosting pancake suppers tonight. Shmoo has his own pancake supper here, made up of four oat pancakes (the best for serving cold!) with a tiny container of maple syrup for dipping, some Smart Bacon, home-fried new potatoes, and an orange.
Verdict: What's not to like? Unfortunately, shmoo left the lid off the syrup container when he finished his lunch and tossed it in his backpack. A delicious, if somewhat sticky, 5 stars.
P.S. Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, and shmoo's class will be sharing a simple meal of rice to welcome in the Lenten "fasting" season. So no lunch box, and I'll be fretting all day over his emptyish tummy. But I'll be making him a big breakfast and afterschool snack!
