Strove Tuesday

Strove Tuesday is today, so you can eat pancakes!

I never quite understood this, since pancakes are perfectly ok to eat all through Lent.

Epicurious:  It explains that Christians used to avoid fat and eggs during Lent (not just meat), hence the Fat Tuesday pancake tradition (bakers and cooks would use up their ingredients before Lent).
