I was thumbing through a baby food recipe book and found a recipe for pumpkin pancakes. I thought that would be perfect. Alex loves pancakes and used to always like pumpkin. Then I realized you can’t buy canned pumpkin right now. I went to two grocery stores before I found out that there is a national pumpkin shortage and they won’t be back in stock until September 2010. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t heard about this, so I looked it up on the internet and found this article. Now I am hoping someone I know has a can of pumpkin they will part with because I really want to make the pancakes. In fact, I want some pumpkin bread too.
