Long weekend recap and new Banana Protein Pancake recipe

15 Oct

WOW we couldn’t have asked for better weather for our Thanksgiving long weekend.

We did so much and I can’t get over how quickly the weekend flew by.

Friday, hubby and I celebrated 10 wonderful years.  We had such a nice dinner.  It was  to get out just the two of us.  We ate at Sterling Steakhouse in Gatineau.   It was a surprise for my hubby.  I’m not a huge meat eater but I thought I’d take him someplace that I knew he’d love.  Let me tell you, the service and food were incredible!  They even surprised us with a beautiful and delicious dessert for our anniversary.

On Saturday my baby sister was home from University and  I had her and a few of my siblings up for a visit


Me and Cait.

Sunday we spent the day at Saunders Farm.  If you go, you definitely have to go in the haunted house.  It was so scary!  When I”m scared I laugh and I was laughing so hard that I was crying!

We spent the day going in the maze fields, jumping on the giant pillows, going on the haunted hay, ride watching the stage show, and basking in the sun.

This weekend I made pancakes but decided to try a new recipe.  I’m not normally a fan of cottage cheese but I guarantee you that you won’t even know it’s in the recipe.   My kids and husband loved these pancakes.  This recipe is definitely a keeper.  Next week i think I’ll use pumpkin instead of the banana for some Fall flava!
