Looking Forward to the Weekend

Tonight, we are "tired pumpkins," an expression I've used since Cub was a wee one.
The past two days have been filled with parent-teacher conferences at work. Cub had a spontaneous after school play date, which is always kinda chaotic, but in a good way. They get to play together and I get to play in my kitchen with limited interuptions. Yay!
Tonight I made the delicious Potato, Carrot, and Parsnip Soup from Bon Appetit via epicurious. Yum-not to mention how good the house smells.
We're excited about tomorrow....

Guess what's for breakfast?
Joy the Baker's Carrot Cake Pancakes ! Don't these look scrumptious? (Photo thanks to Joy, my new idol.)
I love carrot cake so much. I've baked so many variations, but never the pancake variety.
I can't wait. I found them while doing a little research for
a fall-themed recipe for the benefit bake sale at school next friday. I'm going
with the Pumpkin Pie Bars. My mouth waters at the sight of these.
They just look too good not to try.
I'm going to give them a test drive tomorrow evening after the
outdoor "Fearless Halloween Party" over at the Children's Museum.
Finally, I'll get to break-out my pink wig.
