Pear Pancakes

Happy Fall yall! I can’t believe Fall is here. I love this time of the year when the weather starts turning cooler (but not too cold) and the leaves start to change. I also LOVE the Fall fruits and vegetables. I got my first Acorn squash at co-op  this weekend! Today I have a fun Fall fruit item for ya.

I know its been some time since I’ve posted. A lot has been going on in my neck of the woods. Kyle proposed 2 weeks ago and we’ve been planning planning planning!377658_10151006594236179_1987364812_n

So far it’s been fun but there has already been some bumps in the road. I want to enjoy this time and not worry about the small stuff. I have to keep reminding myself that. Kyle and I have been together for 4 years so it’s been a long time coming for us. We couldn’t be happier about planning our wedding. Yes, Kyle has been helping too. He really does like to help pick out the details and have opinions about different things. I’m thankful that he wants to be involved in the process.

Ok, so back to the food. The other week I picked up some pears at the Locally grown co-op. I wanted to try something fun to incorporate them into a meal. So I decided on pancakes! I’m so glad I did.

I started by chopping up a pear into bite size pieces.

I then sautéed them in a teaspoon of butter and added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon of sugar.

I sautéed them until they were nice and soft.

I added them to my normal pancake batter.

I heated up the pan and cooked them till done.

They ended up being thicker than normal due to the pears.
