It’s raining, it’s pouring…

I’d rather be snoozing..

But instead, I’m woooorking.  Back to work I go. 

 

After spending two nights at my in-laws’, coming home to my own bed was glorious.  And listening to the noise of a winter rainstorm right outside my window made me want to hunker down in the sheets.  But alas – I had to get up!  It’s nothing that a delicious breakfast cannot cure.

Mmmm.  Pumpkin Oatmeal Pancake.

I used this recipe as a base, but subbed out the sweet potato for canned pumpkin.  Instead of maple syrup, I topped the pancake with brown sugar. 

 

Perfection.

Choose to make it a WONDERFUL day!

    Yum, that pancake looks delicious. I’m glad I’m not the only one whose oatmeal pancakes come out looking like that. A little “unconventional” but still delicious :)

    Definitely couldn’t get out of bed this morning! Although I have another long weekend coming up, so I think I can survive!

    I’m choosing to make it a wonderful day with a veggie filled lunch and a gym date tonight! Yay for healthy intentions!

    Pancakes are the perfect comforting breakfast…

    I was wondering, is there anyway to “search” on your blog? I was looking for your goat cheese hummus recipe and I ended up having to click back thru september posts to find it…if there is a search bar anywhere, I am completely blind and in a sugar coma from christmas! thanks!!

      Hey Taylor,

      I hope its okay that I answer this because I had the same problem. I went to google and typed in “healthy tipping point goat cheese hummus” and I was able to find the recipe that way (it was the first link). Hope this helps :)

          I just added a new search toolbar! Sorry, the other one kind of sucked so I eliminated it and then forgot to add it back. Doh!!!

    That breakfast looks delicious! I think that brown sugar pretty much makes any breakfast a miracle.

    It is bitter here in Atlanta! I woke up with the rain and now it’s overcast and cold. I could have used that pancake for breakfast. Good luck with work today!

    Those pancakes look yummy! I was not looking forward to coming back to work after 6 days off, but a free Starbucks coupon made it a little less painful!

    I love coming home to my own bed. It always feels so much more comfortable after time away.

    I love that you wrote “CHOOSE” to make it a wonderful day. Every day is what you make of it. It is so important to remind ourselves (ok, myself of that).

    The first night back in my bed even after a day or 2 is always such a treat. Happy Tuesday!
