Dinner- White wine marinated steak with smashed potatoes and green beans (Didn't use it yesterday like planned... we went to the park :) )

Tuesday- Breakfast- Homemade Pumpkin Spice Granola with raisins

Lunch- Leftovers or out with church friends if the kiddos are holding up okay

Recipe of the Week:
Carrot Cake Pancakes
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup unbleached, all purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 teaspon nutmeg
dash of cloves
dash of ginger
1/4 cup brown sugar (we use turbinado in place of brown sugar)
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 tbs coconut oil (Can use any kind of oil, but we prefer coconut)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs, beaten
2 cups grated carrot

1. Combine first 8 ingredients
2. Add in brown sugar and the next 4 ingredients- mix well.
3. Fold in the grated carrot
4. Drop spoonfuls onto greased skillet, and continue cooking like normal pancakes :).
