Tomorrow we celebrate “Pancake Day!” Many of our KES Clubs do not serve pancakes on a regular basis but we do have some Clubs that serve this special treat on what we call “Pancake Day”. Even if you have a grab and go type of KES Club you can still make some delicious pancakes for your students – gather some griddles and some extra volunteers and serve a special pancake treat. Tomorrow you may wish to try this delicious pancake recipe, it sounds super delicious and nutritious…enjoy!
