On the weekends I tend to indulge in “bigger”, sweeter breakfasts and I always make them from scratch. So when I decided to do all things pumpkin a few Octobers ago, I searched the internet for a pumpkin pancake recipe. I came across this one and have been making it at least once each October for the past few years. It combines the perfect amount of pumpkin flavour with all the festive fall spices. It’s so simple to make and such a hit!
Since the warm weather arrived a few months ago, I have been a little disappointed that I am unable to indulge in all the yummy summer cocktails and sangrias that seem to make their way onto drink menus the minute the heat hits. Instead of whining, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create a refreshing summer mocktail for myself to enjoy. I know that I am currently no longer pregnant and some may ask why I am not making the choice to indulge in alcohol. Although others may choose to drink alcohol well breastfeeding and that is a personal decision that I do not judge; it is not the right decision for me. I am choosing to err on the side of caution and abstain while breastfeeding. I also can’t imagine timing and planning out when to consume alcohol, especially with a newborn whose needs seem to change every few days – right when we think we got it figured out! 😉
