Ryan sent Rush out to the deep freeze to get sausage links for dinner tonight.
Rush: What's for dinner?
Ryan: It's Shrove Tuesday, we're having pancakes.
Ryan: Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday, last day before Lent... eat up all the fat and sugar and meat in the house?
Rush still looks blank.
Regardless of the reason, pancakes for dinner is always a hit (except with Isaac, he ate bacon and cold cereal). The adults put blueberries in theirs and the kids gagged while we ate them. I guess the kids need a bit more church history or culture or whatever- they have no clue about Mardi Gras, Lent, or why you would give up meat for 40 days or even for one day a week.
On the Olympics front: the commercials are pretty good and I've yet to see curling. Ryan and Rush watched the Men's Biathalon today. I really wished I had asked the kids to get me a pair of those red mittens while they were in Vancouver.
