Here it is:
this is cooked. it doesn't look too cooked now, does it?
#2. I stink at making pancakes. It doesn't seem to difficult... but somehow they never really turn out well. Peter is the pancake expert at our house. For some reason this doesn't deter me from trying to make them. These were supposed to be pumpkin pancakes.
hmm, not looking so good.
I decided to try to salvage the batter and stick it in the waffle iron.
These were tasty although I preferred them "cold". probably because while warm they reminded me of the gummy pancakes I had just tasted.
WW Pumpkin Bread

1 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. nuts, chopped (optional)

#4. Pumpkin Spice Latte in a crockpot.
No picture but it was good. Made it for a church small group Halloween party. I didn't use all the vanilla that was called for in the recipe (that is a ton!) but put in a whole (smallish) bottle of it when I roughly x4 or x5'd the recipe (so still quite a bit). One thing, I would have pureed my pumpkin a little more had I thought about the possibility of swallowing little pumpkin chunks every once in a while. (= still good, still good.
