Happy Sunday loves!
I hope you have all had a fantastic weekend…guess what!
I finally started my Christmas shopping! Emphasis on the word started…as in not at all finished…Nevermind the fact that I’m sure to be running around town like a mad woman two days before Christmas this year…I have some pancakes to tell you guys about!
Obviously, I didn’t get my eggnog fix the other day with my oats. I swear I wasn’t even finished with my bowl and I was already having dreams of pancakes.
So this morning, I made my dreams a reality and took BB along for the ride!

You can find these microplane graters at Bed Bath & Beyond or any kitchen accessory type store for around 10 bucks…sounds a bit pricey but they make such a useful tool around the kitchen. I use mine for nutmeg, cinnamon, chocolate, zesting citrus, and I’ve even used it for grating cheese a few times!
But anywho…back to some delicious pancakes!
Eggnog Pancakes in the buff
So risque! 😉
Coated in a good drizzle of pumpkin-y goodness…
And dusted with a little snow!
The flavor of the eggnog shines PERFECTLY thanks to the addition of the nutmeg.
And rolling every fluffy bite into a pool of spicy pumpkin syrup makes your mouth want to sing!
Fa la la la laaaaaaaaaa!
Luckily BB accepts the fact that along with taking 5 million pictures of our food before we sit down to eat, I occasionally burst into song after the meal. Honestly, I don’t think he cares what I do as long as there’s bacon on the table! 😉
Well, speaking of meals…I have some veggies to chop for enchiladas tonight.
What is your favorite/mostly used kitchen tool/gadget?
I would have to say my microplane grater or Magic Bullet.
What is a kitchen tool/gadget that you WANT to own?
Umm, a juicer, a Vitamix, a KitchenAid stand mixer…my list could go on and on! 😉
