Pumpkin Pancakes with Butter Pecan Syrup

I know, pumpkin again.  But these pancakes are perfect for this time of year, and the syrup is what really makes them scrumptious!  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Pumpkin Bread

I love all things pumpkin this time of year.  This is also one of my favorite fall gifts to give.  Cover the bread in plastic wrap and then wrap it in an inexpensive kitchen towel and tie with twine or raffia.

Pumpkin Bread

1/2 cup butter
1 can pumpkin
1 egg

Combine dry ingredients

Tip:  Lightly sprinkle top of bread batter with sugar and it creates a simple sweet crust on top
Bake at 350 degrees 30 to 40 minutes

Sweet & Sour Meatballs

I will start by first saying, "don't knock it 'til you try it".  My MIL made these, and at first I couldn't believe the ingredients.  But I ended up loving them along with the rest of my family.  They would be perfect for a party, or over rice for dinner. Either way they are very good!
