On Sunday morning our kitchen is transformed into a pancake factory. I usually make a double batch of warm, fluffy pancakes, so I can freeze half for a quick and easy breakfast later on in the week.  Just pop them in the toaster oven and BOOM, breakfast is served.

After visiting the pumpkin patch on Saturday, this pumpkin lovin’ mommy came up with the perfect Fall recipe. Pumpkin Pancakes! Instead of freezing ALL of the leftovers, I packed a fun Breakfast For Lunch!

Along with some fresh fruit and leftover sausage, I made sure to pack some syrup and fresh whipped cream for dipping.
