A quick look at Wikipedia reveals I am correct. Go me.
Well anyway this pancake day is special because it's the first time I ever made pancakes myself. I was always put off by the flippy thing you see, and felt I wouldn't be able to do it. I still feel that way, as I did no flipping. I went to the library and there was a nice woman there with some recipe cards with recipes to help you use up food so it doesn't go to waste and one such recipe was a recipe for banana pancakes. It seemed pretty simple and best of all the recipe called for you to use a knife to flip the pancakes, rather than just flipping them. Last Saturday I gave it a go. It didn't go quite so well as the pancakes didn't keep their shape at all, and stuck to the pan (so I wouldn't be able to flip them anyway) and would fall apart. A joke I made on Twitter is that they were more like Pancake Bites than Pancakes. But the main thing is that they were edible, and delicious at that. So that was good.
