This is how the Marshall's roll on Fat Tuesday - pancakes for dinner. It's a hold back from our Anglican days. The English custom is to eat pancakes on the eve before Ash Wednesday and so we do.
We mixed it up a little this year. My wife Joy had a mimosa with her pancakes. I poured a draft of the delicious Irish Stout that I brewed a month ago. I kegged it up and it's truly magical. I called it "Pro-Bono Irish Stout" in honor of the front-man of Ireland's favorite band U2. And let me tell you, Irish Stout and pancakes are hard to beat. I was almost tempted to pour the stout onto the pancakes like syrup. I need to patent this combo before IHOP gets to it. The coffee-like hints and subtle sweetness of the Irish Stout blend perfectly with a short stack. Go get some.
