    Default We're having shroves for dinner

    When the girls were very young they thought these pancakes were "shroves"
    because we had them for dinner on Shrove Tuesday.

    MRS OLSON'S NORWEGIAN PANCAKES

    4 eggs
    4 tablespoons sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon cardamom
    1 cup milk
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1 1/2 cups flour

    Add liquids to dry ingredients and beat well. Bake quickly at 400 on an
    electric griddle.

    I'll be serving these with bacon AND sausage because my BFF Margie decreed
    that on Shrove Tuesday you could have BOTH and as many as you wanted. We'll
    top these with melted Plugra and perhaps some Grade B maple syrup. In days
    of yore we had lingonberry syrup.

    What the heck is "Shrove Tuesday"? I'm Norwegian and never had a
    Shrove Tuesday.

    As per the Wiki....Shrove Tuesday is a term used in English-speaking
    countries, especially the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia,[1] New
    Zealand, Philippines, and parts of the United States[2] for the day
    preceding Ash Wednesday, the first day of the season of fasting and
    prayer called Lent.

    The word shrove is the past participle of the English verb to shrive,
    which means to obtain absolution for one's sins by way of confession
    and doing penance. During the week before Lent, sometimes called
    Shrovetide in English, Christians were expected to go to confession in
    preparation for the penitential season of turning to God. Shrove
    Tuesday was the last day before the beginning of Lent on Ash
    Wednesday, and noted in histories dating back to 1000 AD. The popular
    celebratory aspect of the day had developed long before the Protestant
    Reformation, and was associated with releasing high spirits before the
    somber season of Lent. It is analogous to the continuing Carnival
    tradition associated with Mardi Gras (and its various names in
    different countries) that continued separately in European Catholic
    countries.

    Oh, cardamom... yum! I have everything I need for that on hand!
    Maybe I'll make those instead of cornmeal. Lingonberry syrup sounds
    way yummy too. I may have some lingonberry jam in the cupboard, no
    syrup though. Thanks for the recipe.

    Hope you enjoy them, These are very thin, by the way, so you can have stacks
    of them. About that lingonberry jam: perhaps you could use that instead of
    syrup, or perhaps you could blenderize it into syrup.

    I guess that's why I've never had a Shrove Tuesday either.

    Thanks for posting that. I was curious but lazy about looking up the
    word and now I don't have to.

    Ooooo. With cardamom! I wonder how those would be with a tiny
    amount of vanilla or almond extract?

    Well, Jean, I guess you'll have to make two test batches to find out. I
    think I'd go with the almond first.
