Pancakes – Tossers and Flippers Night
Tuesday 21st February @ 8:30 pm to 10:00 pm
The time for tossing and turning has again come around. This is not a reference to restless sleep but a reminder that the COPSE Pancake Night will be this week! A flipping good time can be had.
Please provide your own batter – prepared at home or at the hall, if you wish – plus the accompanying ingredients . We do need to have some extra cooking appliances, if possible, so please bring any camping stoves or portable electric hobs you may own, along with frypans, spatulas, plates and cutlery. (As with our recent Burns Night feast, clearing away is so aided if COPSErs can pop their own used items into a bag to take back home for cleaning.)
During the evening, indulge yourselves with self-made food – and become creative by experimenting with a variety of fillings. Think of it, concoct it and perhaps tempt other brave people to try your results! Below are some of both savoury and sweet efforts from past years.
Mushrooms with garlic, onions, mixed herbs and cream
Grated mature Cheddar cheese with optional pickle
Blue cheese (“upmanship”!) with sun-dried tomatoes
Nutella chocolate spread
Christmas pudding with crème fraîche (over ten months to replace the pud!)
Lemon curd sprinkled with ground ginger
A slight spread of butter, drizzled over by various flavoured coffee syrups
… and, of course, the traditional fresh lemon juice and sugar!
As well as devouring our pancakes, we may once more have a tossing contest for anyone who wishes to take part.
Come to beat and eat, chew and chat. Shrove Tuesday usually proves to be a pleasantly sociable Club Night.
