I might be wrong but here goes .....

As a young boy I was often told how the making of pancakes was symbolic of and related to using up the excess or left over stores of food after the winter. A simple meal made from left over eggs and flour.

I know that eggs of course were not stored over the winter and therfore the explanation is a little inconsistent but maybe there is some truth in it?

Anybody got any ideas? As I said I may very well be wrong and perhaps this is a mythology of my own making ??? Part of that twilight knowledge from the years of juvenescence.
