Pumpkin Pancakes

I hate Fall.

There, I said it.

Blasphemous, I know.

I’ll probably lose a few blog subscribers.

People start saying, “Oh, the cool weather, football, sweatshirts, pumpkin spice lattes, blah, blah, blah.”

You know what happens in the fall and after the fall??? It gets cold. Then it gets colder. Then it snows.  Ugh.

Summer rocks and I’ll wear my flip flops until my toes get frostbite. So there.

Exaggerating? Maybe a little. But really…it makes me so sad to think summer is gone.

The one item that actually makes me happy to have fall is pumpkin. I can’t get enough of it. It works in just about everything. Sweet and savory.

Andy has been asking me to makes these pancakes for months. I kept telling him he has to wait until it is cool out. Well, I guess he was in luck.
