Thanksgiving Breakfast Recipe! + Bonus

This weekend was pretty calm, and I liked it. After traveling last weekend and drinking/eating way too much I was pleased to have nothing to do! On Saturday Joe-Joe and I went to the Badger's hockey game and were spoiled rotten by sitting in the suite section. Major perk! I'm already running into a problem though....this coming weekend Penn State plays Wisconsin in football....and I have to work the game! I'm currently trying to figure out the best outfit in which I can subtly shout my allegiance to PSU without offending my new employer. Any thoughts are appreciated.
 
But before the Penn State game there's Thanksgiving!! Thanksgiving means a lot of good food. So, I have a challenge for you. Run a 5k on Thursday morning (mine will be on a treadmill because I never signed up for a race), and then make these amazing Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pancakes to start your day! By getting protein, carbohydrates and healthy fat into your body before Thanksgiving dinner you'll feel less like indulging. Promise!
