What started as Shrove Tuesday is now more commonly known as Pancake Day or Fat Tuesday. The meaning behind it came from the idea that it was your last chance to "indulge" before the beginning of Lent. You'd soon have to resist eating ingredients like eggs, fat and dairy. And, when those 3 components are put together, what do you get? Pancakes! Of course pancakes are enjoyed year-round but on this day it's totally okay to have them for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
