Welcome back, oatmeal pancake.

  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • pinch salt
  • cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Topped with Pumpkin Yogurt: just a mix of greek yogurt, pumpkin puree, and cinnamon and an apple on the side.

Honestly, the first time I saw people mixing pumpkin INTO yogurt, I wasn’t sure I would like it. I thought the texture would be too strange for me, but I was wrong. I love it!

4. House hunting!!!

Nick and I have an afternoon planned with our realtor, and I’m excited to get out there. I think we’ll end up seeing 6-8 houses this afternoon? Should be fun! 

Finishing my coffee and getting working! I’m going to try to finish up some laundry and do a little cleaning while I’m home this morning – gotta burn off some of this excitement about house hunting ;)

  1. Today is for whatever reason a perfect pancake day – might be due to celebrating the no work thing. Having big fluffy pancakes for breakfast too. Yum.

    Your pumpkin variety looks delish. Good luck with the house hunting – I love looking at homes.

  2. Good luck house hunting! What a great Monday!

  3. So jealous you have the day off! Have a great time today!

  4. MMm, that breakfast looks lovely! Good luck house hunting :)

  5. Enjoy the day off! I have to say I’m quite jealous. And maybe a little bitter (but I won’t take that out on you…).

    Good luck house hunting!!!

  6. I love the oatmeal pancake. It looks so good. I remember IHOP used to have a cream of wheat pancake which was so delicious.

    Good luck house hunting! :)

  7. Pumpkin yogurt throws me back to my first days doing WW Core, when I first met you!! :)

  8. Maggie looks absolutely adorable in that picture. I love taking dog photos and looking at other people’s dog photos. Always makes me smile. :-) I am jealous though of your day off. I sadly am at work.

  9. I can’t wait to see more pics of houses that you guys look at! Al and I will be starting the search soon! Your pancakes look delish!

  10. Enjoy your day off! I’ll be at work, but it’ll be a relaxing day:)

  11. OK, I’ll give the pumpkin a try with pancakes. Looks great!

    Interested in some chocolate goodness in a pancake?

  12. Sounds like an awesome Monday off work! I hope the house hunting is going well!

  13. Love the breakfast recipe!

    Good luck house hunting!

  14. It’s always great to start a week with such an awesome breakfast.
    Good luck with the house!

  15. Have fun with the house hunt! Hunting is fun, it’s when you find the house and have to move out of the one you are currently in that starts to get not so fun. :( Ugh, packing is awful but so worth it in the long run.
