and another rendition

again i slacked on the soup. only because today was crazy busy- i was gone from 9:30-12 with the Early Nester's ministry, and then at Wic from 2:30-3:30, and then decided that this afternoon would be a great time to clean out my overloaded back pantry (i would have taken a picture, but to quote a friend- i do have a reputation to maintain).
so what does one do when her husband is going back to work from 5-9pm? and her kids have had their naps and schedules interrupted?
an easy pleaser- pancakes.
no pictures this time, but i did change up my recipe, and i must admit- they were even better.
seriously, i just sat and ate one cold before i started to type.

start with your snoqualmie falls pancake mix or whatever pancake mix you love to cook with.

2 cups pancake mix
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt
1 1/2 cups water (i put in one cup and then continued to add water as i mixed it up- to my desired consistency)
and again- chocolate chips are totally optional (for this batch i used mini chocolate chips- but seriously only like 5 per pancake- and yes, they rock with the chocolate, and they equally rock without.)
mix, mix, mix.
i grab my 1/4 cup measuring cup and drop the batter onto a heated pan coated with pam.
these were tasty with my sugar free syrup, but even better just cold.
well, i am off to- wait for it:
well and exercise.
and wait a sec- isn't how i met your mother on tonight?

  1. Hee-hee. I almost did pancakes tonight, too, but then went one easier: leftovers. We mustn't be wasteful now, right?
