Another great way to celebrate is with pancakes. Duh. Pancakes make the world go round.

These pancakes are quite pumpkin-y and spice-y. Despite the extremely HOT weather, they make you feel like it’s fall outside. And it’s perfect. And I don’t know about you, but something about pumpkin makes me really full. Pumpkin pancakes are my go-to when I know I have a long day ahead of me and need some serious fuel.
