Pumpkin Honey Pancakes

This is a brand spanking new recipe in our house! It came about after I made some Pumpkin Muffins for our Pantry Challenge week. I was trying to use up some of the frozen pumpkins I had in the freezer. My 3-year-old fell in love with them and he insisted that on Thursday, Pancake day, we needed Pumpkin Pancakes.

He was up bright and early Thursday morning to help Momma. We made our basic Pancake recipe and then added the pumpkin. Added a little spice and it needed to be sweetened so he suggested some honey. (Yesterday was Winnie the Pooh day and we know what he loves to eat.) Below is the recipe that we came up and they were delicious! Continue reading “Pumpkin Honey Pancakes”

January 15-21, 2017 Meal Plan

This is our basic meal plan for the week. Sometimes we will switch the days around if I forgot to set something out or put something in the crock pot. Please feel free to use this or change it around to suit your family’s needs.

I do have ‘Snacks/Desserts’ listed as well. I always try to keep a bowl of fresh fruit out on the counter or table for the kids to snack on. Sometimes I will make a special snack or treat for us to enjoy.

NOTE: This is a Pantry Challenge Week for me.
