Ingredients for Our First Snow & Pumpkin Pancakes Are All in Place!

It is a good thing I am working at least three of our major models that our weather team uses are lining up for snow on Sunday. How much moisture will be available is the question....I think enough to cover the ground and use a snow shovel. I will have more details tonight on the news and check back with you here on the blog. Happy Thanksgiving to everybody! My wife made some great macaroni and cheese (Maryland-style) to go with a nice moist scrumptious turkey. Thanks Julie! Thank you Niccole Caan for the wonderful brunch this morning. Here is a recipe she would like to share with you.

Serves 6
Double or triple the recipe if you have a big group.
1 1/2 cup flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 cups milk
1 large egg
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup pumpkin pie in a can mix
Add to taste: cinnamon, sugar, and some pumpkin pie spice if you have it laying around.
Mix all ingredients together, taste, add more sugar if necessary. Possibly throw in some more flour because the pumpkin pie mix tends to water the recipe down.
Or you can cheat and buy the premade pancake mix, follow the instructions and add the premade pumpkin pie mix in a can to it. Holidays are stressful enough, why work harder?
Add some turkey bacon to give the meal a Thanksgiving feel (plus it's healthy too!)
Perfect to hold you over until the big, main meal and it provides a nice break for those cooking the traditional dinner if another family member does brunch at their home.
Also perfect for those, like me, who work nights and can't attend the main meal.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to my family in Florida, Wisconsin, Maryland, and all my friends across the country. I would need two blogs to write down all the things I am thankful for! I better get back to work with the snow on the way! Mom and Dad I love you! Get ready for some thunder and heavy rain on Sunday down in Florida! You need it!
