I decided to join the pack of everyone posting pumpkin pancake recipes, they have all looked so good I wanted some too. I got out my favorite recipe for them and added a twist, part of the liquid in this recipe is apple cider! It made these pancakes so light and fluffy.
My cousin came to stay with me for a few days and this was breakfast. I had the best time with her. We went out several times to eat, We went for Mexican food at the taco trucks and enjoyed chicken tacos and pork tamales. We tasting some amazing hibiscus tea at one that then put us on a path to look for the hibiscus which we found at a Mexican grocery store. It is so good, it is a lot like a cranberry juice and as soon as I make some, I’ll share the recipe with you. It is supposed to be really good for you. We also went to the see the Dale Chihuly collection in St. Petersburg. It was so amazing! I wished I had taken my good camera instead of my point and shoot. Here are just a couple of the pictures I took. I will be sharing more over at Eat Drink Tampa.com this weekend.
Amazing! You can sit and look at this for 30 minutes and not see it all. So many colors and variations. This blown glass sculpture is huge, at least 8 feet tall at the tallest point.
I love this area of St. Petersburg, so much going on and so much to do. A few days before we went had gone to the park across the street for a Taste of St. Petersburg festival. They had an awesome band and over 20 food booths set up. We got these delicious Crab French Fry’s that day there. They are coated with a garlic butter after frying and then topped with the shredded crab and a garlic aioli. They were so yummy!
Now that I’ve shared how my week went, how about those pumpkin pancakes! If you want to make the pancakes all of the same size, use a scoop to portion the pancakes out. I used my large scoop and it made a nice size medium pancake.
