Pumpkin Pancakes

Sunday mornings at our house have become "pancake making" day. For the past several months, I have whipped up pancakes from a recipe out of the Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook. I quadruple the recipe so Lauren and Dominic can eat them throughout the week for breakfast before they go to school. It is a very popular item on the "menu." This past Sunday, I decided to make some pumpkin pancakes from a recipe my sister sent me back in November of last year. I made some modifications here and there from the original recipe, but for the most part the ingredients are the same. I made these this past Sunday morning for the hubby and kids. For something a little different, I tossed a small handful of chopped walnuts into a few of the pancakes for the hubby and I (the kids don't eat walnuts). Surprise the family one night by serving these pancakes for dinner. Where is it written that pancakes are only for breakfast?!?!? Growing up, my mom would sometimes serve us breakfast for dinner. I used to think it was pretty cool and I guarantee your family will think so too!!!
