I was thinking for Pancake Tuesday, why not make the pancakes festive Mardi Gras colors?! :-)
Just make your favorite pancake recipe, mix in some
food coloring, and cook them like you always do!
Voila! Mardi Gras pancakes, fresh from the griddle!
You can read more about the Catholic roots of Mardi Gras here, or see more ideas for Pancake Tuesday here. PS. I'm aware that artificial coloring is not everyone's cup of tea, so if you're not a fan, just disregard this idea :-)
