Happy Sunday!! Sunday morning is officially pancake morning at our house. I make the pancakes, Martha Anne makes the bacon, and we’re starting the week off right. This week on the menu was something I like to call Thanksgiving Pancakes.
Ok ok, I realize that it is only September. But to celebrate all of the pumpkin flavored everything that is just starting to come out for the fall, I wanted to make pumpkin pancakes. And what better add-ins than pecans and dried cranberries? It’s like three of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes all in one!
Even though it’s not November 27th yet, we still have a lot to be thankful for every day. This time last year I was not doing so well – my health was a wreck, and so was I. One year later, I still have a ways to go before I’m finally close to normal, but the improvement I’ve made in the last year is tremendous. I’m so thankful for what God has given me – better health, a wonderful roommate and house, an awesome family and friends, and the ability to share all of that with you! Not to mention the amazing Wolfpack Win against Old Dominion last night! So let’s just say that the two true meanings of Thanksgiving – giving thanks, and pumpkin – came early this year.
These pancakes were super easy, and delicious to boot. Sticking with the Thanksgiving theme, I bet they’d be great as the “buns” for a turkey, spinach and cranberry relish sandwich…hmmm….
Be sure to check back in next week for another serving of Sunday Mornin’ Pancakes! Can’t wait to try something new. Any ideas?
