Fall Morning Pancakes

This morning is a perfect fall morning.  When I woke up and let the kitties outside, I wished for some of that homemade goodness called breakfast.  All week I had ate bagels that I got in Tulsa. (Freshest bagels that I've ever had!)  I new that Tasty Kitchen had a pancake recipe.  I'm all for making different kinds of pancakes.  That's one thing that I like to try.  I haven't went out on a limb to make different kinds of soups or stuffings that I see on the internet, magazines or on tv.  But every once in awhile, I love to try something different.

For this recipe, I didn't have much milk.  So they turned out thicker.  I used 2 tablespoons of brown sugar instead of corn syrup.  I also added 1/4 tsp of ginger and pumpkin pie spice.  These pancakes had the same consistency of what my mom and grandma always made, cowboy bread.  Cowboy bread is where you make the batter and then spoon it onto the skillet but these isn't any spices or sugar in it.

I put butter and Griffin's pancake syrup on top!  I enjoyed it with a cup of coffee. :)

Waste Not - Uses for Items You Need to Use

Yesterday, well this weekend I had some milk that I needed to use before it spoiled.  Sometimes I'll go throw a half gallon of milk and then there's times that I won't even touch it.  I think we all go through that at times.  So what I made was cornbread and then in the afternoon I made some banana pudding.  There's always uses for the milk if you just think about it.  My mom made pinto beans to go with the cornbread and the banana pudding was a great dessert.
