Weekend Pictures and a Recipe

17 Oct

Something about going home to my parents house is always so relaxing. Given I usually sleep in late and take at least one nap each day but I always come back feeling refreshed.  I got to spend time with little baby Michael and watch him get baptized!

I also managed to get in my 3rd workout of the week (yes only 3- BAD WEEK!) with a nice easy run on Saturday morning.


Besides sleeping, holding babies and running I also did a little bit of cooking! Saturday night we decided to make pancakes for dinner. I wanted to make pumpkin pancakes so I combined a recipe of my mom’s that involves sour cream to come up with these.

Pumpkin Pie Sour Cream Pancakes

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • Cinnamon and Pumpkin Pie spice to taste
You start off combining 1 tsp of baking soda in the cup of sour cream and letting it rise. Then combine all other ingredients. Cook on a hot skillet, top with maple syrup and powdered sugar and enjoy!
The normal sour cream pancakes are a little doughy tasting but these were really soft. I think adding more flour may have helped. The pumpkin flavor was very subtle as well so maybe go heavy on the spices.
What fun things did you do this weekend?
