There is something about traditions…

Every single Thanksgiving morning I make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip pancakes. It’s my way of inaugurating this fantastic holiday filled with indulgence. I feel justified because I really only eat two meals on Thanksgiving anyways, breakfast and dinner (well then seconds and thirds of dinner too, but who’s counting.) 🙂

This recipe should look familiar, as it is mainly my usual Sunday morning pancake recipe but with a few Thanksgiving enhancements like cloves, ginger, and pumpkin! Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Don’t forget to let your friends and loved ones know how thankful you are for them! 🙂
