Pancakes (Shrove Tuesday)
Tuesday 13th February @ 8:15 pm to 10:00 pm
The time for tossing and turning has come around again – no, 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. 😁
Packets of batter mix with “just add milk” (or even just water?) are available in many supermarkets for those COPSErs who wish to keep things simple, although others might like to make their own from scratch, of course. Whichever you prefer, please provide your own batter and accompanying filling ingredients.
Also, 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. Try the challenge of concocting unusual toppings / fillings and perhaps tempt other brave people to try your results! Below are some of both savoury and sweet efforts from past years. (The idea is to not have tried out your thoughts in advance!)
Mushrooms with garlic, onions, mixed herbs and cream
Grated mature Cheddar cheese with optional pickle
Blue cheese (“upmanship”!) with sun-dried tomatoes
Mexican chilli beef
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. (Appropriate photo of Tim wheeled out again.)
Come to beat and eat, chew and chat. Shrove Tuesday usually proves to be a pleasantly sociable Club Night.
