Shoreham Congregational Church to hold pancake supper on Shrove Tuesday
SHOREHAM — Shrove Tuesday is the day before Lent, which starts on Ash Wednesday. This year Shrove Tuesday is Feb. 28.
Another name for this day, Pancake Day, comes from the old English custom of using up all the fattening ingredients in the house before Lent, so that people were ready to fast during Lent. The fattening ingredients that most people had in their houses in those days were eggs and milk. A very simple recipe to use up these ingredients was to combine them with some flour and make pancakes.
In that tradition, the Shoreham Congregational Church, 28 School Road, Shoreham, will sponsor a Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper on Tuesday, Feb. 28, from 5 to 7 p.m. The menu includes pancakes with maple syrup, latkes with applesauce, sausage, home fries, and beverages.
The cost is only $7 for adults, $4 for children, and $20 for a family, and the meal is open to all.
People are also encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for the Food Shelf. Come join in this celebration with food and friendship as we prepare for the season of Lent.
