thing 1 and thing 2
meet max. he is the strong silent type. max is the new addition to my kitchen counter. i have had a thing for max for quite some time now. i have been trying to win max (or one of his lovely friends) on pioneer woman's blog. but finally, kaye found someone who was trying to sell their brand new one and she bought it for me since tomorrow is my birthday. she's sometimes the best daughter! it was quite a bargain too, she does her mother proud.
we have gone gluten free for two weeks now. (also dairy free for most of that) and i wanted pancakes this morning dammit! i got out my very little box of gluten free bisquick (although it costs the same as the big box of the regular!). i decided i wanted pumpkin pancakes, as i LOVE anything pumpkin-y. i just kinda threw some stuff together and was rewarded with some very yummy, fluffy pumpkin pancakes. you must try these, with whichever bisquick you choose. i also used almond milk instead of regular milk. and i warmed up some maple syrup and butter and dumped in about 2 T of chopped walnuts and poured on top- oh, the yumminess!
here is the recipe:
aurorafedora's pumpkin pancakes
1 cup bisquick
1/2 t pumpkin pie spice
1 T sugar
1 c milk
1/4 cup pumpkin
-mix it all together. cook on a greased warm griddle. flip when the top gets dry looking. cook til golden. eat like a pig. it made 8 smallish pancakes. and, no, i did not eat them all myself....yet.
note* the above picture is not an example of the pancakes with the warm, buttery syrup. i ate them too quickly to get a picture. this photo is of the remaining stack. also, i am no food photographer...obviously.

3. for fun at the pumpkin patch with t.willie (will post monday) (stay tuned) (hold onto your hat)
