We never need an excuse here at Monkbarns to get tucked into a tasty treat, however we couldn’t let Shrove Tuesday pass by without celebrating this well recognised day with some hand crafted pancakes of our own.

Our residents got stuck in embellishing their home cooked pancakes with an array of tasty accompaniments. There was lots to choose from, with fresh berries and whipped cream being a firm favourite, along-with a scrumptious caramel sauce and chocolate buttons combo.

There was no reluctance to get involved, with Bella in particular taking great delight in choosing her own unique combination of treats to create her ideal pancake.

Happy Pancake Day from all at Monkbarns care home.
