Pancake Day!

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

It’s Pancake Day!! Simon announced that he was going to make pancakes this morning so I was ridiculously excited, although straight away I thought we’d end up spending the rest of the show stood in the car park awaiting the fire engines to get here. I couldn’t believe it when I walked into the studio and saw that he’d brought his little travelling hob and all the ingredients to make the pancakes. Always one to break the rules, he couldn’t wait to start cooking and the smell was amazing! However, unsurprisingly, lights started flashing, the fire alarm started kicking off and I saw everyone in the building walk out the door!! Simon wasn’t bothered; in fact he cooked more pancakes 30 minutes later! Definitely one to watch, you can catch Simons Live pancake making video on our YouTube channel.

I found a few pancake facts for those of you who don’t actually know why Pancake Day is actually called Pancake Day:

1. The idea of eating pancakes on Shrove Tuesday is actually more than a thousand years old and was originally created as a way to get rid of all the leftover fatty foods people had in their cupboards before Lent began on Ash Wednesday.

2. The most flips anyone has ever done with a pancake is 349 flip in 2 minutes

3. Andrei Smirnov from Russia ate a whopping 73 pancakes in 1 hour! That’s more than 1 a minute!!

Pancake Day is officially my second favourite day of the year, the first being my birthday. I love this day more than Christmas! It’s a Moore family tradition where all the family congregate at my mam’s, she ends up making around 80 / 90 pancakes and the fillings range from ham and cheese to peanut butter and ice cream, none of this sugar and lemon nonsense.

If you hadn’t heard, I’m taking part in the Sunderland City 10k race this year which I’m a little bit wary of. I’m not really a fan of exercise at all and I really don’t want to embarrass myself. Simon’s told me he has a surprise in store for me tomorrow; someone that can help me with my I’m a little bit nervous to say the least. I hate surprises, but I suppose I don’t have long to find out who it is!!
