Pecan-Oatmeal Pancakes

So even with a plan, things change ... and this time am pretty happy about it!  This week's Menu Plan has Coq au Vin alla Italiana on it for today.  Yesterday I went to a different Meijer store than where I usually go.  My store's ad had chicken on sale for $1.79 lb (which I was buying not only to stock-up but also for tonight's dinner) but the store I went to wasn't running the same sale.  So of course I didn't buy it at the higher price.

With the cold temps and snow we had today, I wanted some comfort food and breakfast for dinner is a favorite of my family's. Pancakes & Sausage!  My son asked if we were having plain pancakes or a "special kind".  That inspired me to look for a new recipe.  I knew I had pecans in the pantry.  ( My husband likes anything with pecans!!)  I found this Pecan-Oatmeal Pancake recipe at Allrecipes.  All I can say it is a keeper!  Everyone liked them.  Pecans and oatmeal with real maple syrup.....YUMMY!!

So you'll see Coq au Vin alla Italiana on next week's Menu Plan.  It's one of my favorite dinners too!
