This has been hopping all over the blogosphere, but in case you missed it, it’s National Pancake Day, and you can get a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes at Ihop. You are invited to make a donation to charity, but I don’t think you’ll be pressured.
I’ve never done this, but a friend of mine took her son and our oldest a couple of years ago and said the wait was, “Not bad.” If you’re willing to wait for a plate of free flapjacks, I’m guessing you’ll be fine with it, too. Not really coincidentally, it’s also Fat Tuesday (or Shrove Tuesday for the Lent observing among us). I’m hoping to have a King’s Cake recipe for you later if you’d like to celebrate the end of Mardi Gras-or just Tuesday…..
If you go get your free pancakes, I’d LOVE a report on the crowds!
