The kids had a couple days off of school last week and that meant one thing. Pancakes. Sleeping in and pancakes just go hand in hand, don't you think? The lofty aroma of pumpkin spice on the griddle draws even the teenage boy down from his gentle slumber. I love my baby boy. Which is why I made pumpkin pancakes.
Now, for the record, I'm all for scratch cooking. But there is nothing wrong with doctoring up a mix now and then. Perfectionist cooking can lead us astray. I mean, how many times have you intended to make this awesome, organic, nutritious meal only to resort to a frozen pizza when you notice that it's 6:30 PM and the kids are yelling, "Feed Me!"? Oh..... you haven't? Oh... OK, then...... Nevermind........
But do try these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes.
They make getting up on a cold, October morning just a little bit easier.
