Shriven (or shrivelled?)

Today is Shrove Tuesday. 

The word shrove  is a form of the English word shrive, which means to obtain absolution for one's sins by way of Confession and doing penance. Thus Shrove Tuesday gets its name from the custom for Christians to be "shriven" before the start of Lent.

Was so engrossed in eating pancakes that I forgot to get a decent photo, until all that was left was this little shrivelled pancake.  I remembered to take the photo and then put him out of his misery.
