Mardi Gras Pancakes

mardi gras pancakes

It’s almost time for Mardi Gras!  Mardi Gras, meaning ‘Fat Tuesday’, signifies the end of the carnival season, and is always the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday.  The colors of Mardi Gras also have significance, purple means justice, gold stands for power, and green for faith.  Do you celebrate Mardi Gras?

My family does not typically celebrate Mardi Gras; however I thought I would get festive this morning and create Mardi Gras pancakes.

The result? Simple, festive pancakes to celebrate Mardi Gras breakfast.

    I do not leave many responses, but i did some searching and wound up here Mardi Gras Pancakes.
    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind.
    Is it simply me or does it look as if like a few of these remarks appear like left by brain dead
    folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post.
    Could you list of the complete urls of all your communal sites like
    your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?


  5. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours nowadays, but I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is lovely worth enough for me. Personally, if all
    website owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the web will probably be much more helpful
    than ever before.

    You need to be a part of a contest for one of the highest quality websites on the internet.

    I will recommend this web site!

    Admiring the dedication you put into your website and in depth information
    you present. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same
    unwanted rehashed information. Great read! I’ve saved your
    site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
