Going back to Strove Tuesday I found a wonderful article on the Pancake and it's use on this day. Also, the history of the cross buns and pretzel. You can read this wonderful article here. During Lent they would still make breads, but with water, flour, and salt. To remind themselves that Lent was a time of prayer they would make the bread to look like arms crossed in prayer, the pretzel! The early Roman Christian called this bracallae meaning "little arms". Later, the monks introduced the bread to northern countries. The Germanic people used the word bretzel from the Roman bracellea, then calling it pretzel.
