  • Finding All Your Flippin' Fantastic Pancake Day Essentials

    Every year, Shrove Tuesday – also known as Pancake Day – presents a great chance for families and friends to get together and spend some quality time in each other’s company while enjoying some tasty treats.

    There are loads of different ways to make pancakes depending on what your specific preferences are, and you can include exciting flavours and textures to make your pancakes that little bit different if you so wish. But there are some rudimental elements and items that are required for the making of pancakes.

    Here at Poundstretcher, we can provide you with a great selection of items to help support with your Pancake Day efforts.

     

    All The Ingredients!

    When it comes to those basic ingredients for pancakes, a few things spring to mind.

    The first are flour and milk; with McDougal flour and skimmed and semi-skimmed organic milk from Moo available in our stores, you now just need a few other ingredients before you're ready to go!

    Eggs are a must, while vegetable oil and salts such as our natural sea salts can help to add flavour. And, of course, let's not forget the lemon juice!

     

    Grab All The Equipment!

    To make truly top of the range pancakes, it’s important you have the right tools at hand.

    A large bowl such as a mixing bowl is the perfect way to get all your ingredients together and mixed up. All your eggs, flour, milk and other ingredients need to be thoroughly whisked, which you can do with a stainless steel or nylon whisks.

    You can then use specially-designed crêpe pans to start the heating process. If you don’t have a crêpe pan to hand, a ceramic frying pan will work just fine. Choose from 20cm, 24cm and 28cm frying pans.

    Don’t forget about a dash of sunflower oil spray to prevent the ingredients from sticking to the pan.

     

    Why Not Get Experimental?


    There’s no reason why you can’t add a few interesting elements to this year’s pancake batch and add a bit of variety to proceedings.

    This host of chocolate items can be used to provide a tasty alternative to the traditional pancake, while there are also plenty of sweets available to spread on pancakes too.

     

    Super-Serving Options

    Once you’ve got that perfect pancake cooked and ready, it’s serving time!

    Explore a great selection of plates, bowls, and cutlery for you to eat your pancakes from. You can pick up all manner of kitchen and dining items at Poundstretcher, so don’t miss out.

    And once you’re finished and you feel the kitchen could do with a bit of a spruce up, we have a great range of kitchen cleaners for you to pick from.

    To make sure that Pancake Day 2019 is one to remember, be sure to plan a visit to your nearest Poundstretcher store and pick up a host of great items.

    Also, why not post your delightful pancake creations with us on Facebook or Twitter?

  • Why do we dress up and decorate at Halloween?

    At Poundstretcher, Halloween is one of our favourite nights of the year. We love having an excuse to dress up as a scary character and kit out rooms with fabulous ghoulish items.

    But when all is said and done, it’s a bit of a strange thing, isn’t it? Why, one night every year, do we celebrate all things scary and spooky?

    Like most events that take place annually, there’s a fair bit of history and tradition that contributes to how we celebrate it today.

    So with Halloween fast approaching, we’ve taken a look at what lies behind the event to give you a better idea of why your Halloween decorations and Halloween costumes are as they are.

    Halloween’s Roots

    You may know that there’s a religious element to Halloween. In most Christian Churches, the 1st of November is All Saint’s Day, also known as All Hallows’ Day. So the 31st of October is All Hallows’ Eve or Evening, which over time has become ‘Halloween’ as we know it today.

    So that’s where the name comes from, but there’s some debate as to whether the traditions and celebrations associated with Halloween come from Pagan or Christian beginnings.

    One of the most popular theories is that many of the traditions stem from the Gaelic festival Samhain, which marked the end of the harvest season and the transition to the darker time of year.

    This was the time of year when the Celtic people of Ireland and Scotland, in particular, believed the world of ghosts and ghouls was at its closest. So it was at Samhain that these people looked to scare away these ghosts and ghouls and keep them in their own world using all many of spooky techniques, such as lighting bonfires and wearing costumes for example.

    Interestingly, one of the reasons the pumpkin is so associated with Halloween is because Christians were encouraged to abstain from meat on All Hallows’ Day. So alternatives, such as pumpkins, were sought and thus became associated with Halloween as we know it.

    It seems that Halloween, as it’s celebrated in the modern age, takes inspiration from a number of historical traditions – all of which band together for the spooky fun we enjoy today.

    Halloween Today

    However, the traditions we today associate with Halloween came about, Halloween today is big business.

    With mass emigration from Europe to the USA in the 19th and 20th centuries, many traditions went with those people who moved across the Atlantic.

    This is why today there are huge festivals and celebrations around Halloween in the US, and the event has become a major part of popular culture both there and in the UK.

    You can get Halloween decoration ideas by taking a look through our superb selection of products. We also stock excellent Halloween partyware, as well as plenty of plenty of Halloween sweets and confectionary in our Trick and Treat range. We also host a wide selection of bargain Halloween decorations to get your homes or offices looking exactly as you wish.

    Be sure to head to your nearest Poundstretcher store before 31st October and get everything you need for Halloween 2018.
