When I was in China, I had met and embraced diverse group of people, locals and foreign alike. So many that if I were to list their names, it would take ages for me to finish it. No Joke! (I had lived in 6 Chinese provinces and explored 7 other provinces) Those people I had met while living and traveling made my life exciting, helped broaden my perspective, taught me things I had never known and introduced me to new cultures, cuisine and holidays.
In one city where I lived for 4 years, I had come to know about a holiday called Shrove Tuesday, also known as Pancake Day. The holiday is observed by many English speaking countries. But what does a pancake have to do with the holiday? This is the explanation of Wiki Answers:
In European countries like England Shrove Tuesday has major importance.
Shrove Tuesday is also known as Pancake Day because it has been a
tradition that has been followed to eat rich foods like pancakes. Before
engaging in Lenten practices, they prepare themselves by conducting such
festivities. On this special day, they serve foods which contain sugar,
eggs, butter all of which are ingredients discouraged during a time of
fasting such as Lent.
In a large bowl, sift together
the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and
pour in the soy milk, egg and sunflower oil.
Mix until smooth.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or
frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the pan, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Drop a dollop of blueberry filling onto the batter as it is frying.
