Quick side note: Thank you all SO, SO much for your incredibly sweet and kind words of congrats on our news. I am beside myself with joy and gratitude. I heart you all a whole lot, I hope you know. XOXO times infinity.
H-A-double-L-O-W-double-E-N spells Halloween!
If you ever sang that completely obnoxious song in grade school, you’d know that it gets stuck in your head EVERY HALLOWEEN to this day, as it does mine. And for those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, consider yourself lucky. Also it just looks like I spelled out Halloween for you.
Anywho, I kind of love Halloween. Which is weird, because I haven’t dressed up for and/or celebrated the occasion in years (like, since college, when I wore the same glittery butterfly costume every year because a) I had no creativity, apparently, and b) I would not be caught dead in a costume that didn’t make me look cute, apparently. Priorities). But I love it for the fact that it’s in fall, my fave season, and that there are crunchy colorful leaves everywhere and jack-o-lanterns and little kids running around dressed up like little witches and baseball players and animals and OHEMGEE THE CUTENESS.
And this year I’m extra excited because I get to give out candy for the first time (the perks of owning a home vs. an apartment). I’m weirdly excited about giving out the candy. And I’m excited about eating it, duh.
In the spirit of my, well, Halloween spirit, I’m also going to be making a big ol’ batch of these festive pancakes on Halloween morning. Because who doesn’t love pancakes for breakfast, and especially who doesn’t love fluffy, bright-orange pumpkin pancakes with a spooky black cinnamon syrup on top? No one. No one doesn’t love them.
