Last weekend, we enjoyed more of the beauty of fall here in central Oregon. We also ate together with a few friends and enjoyed Sunday brunch around this Trader Joe’s EPIC Pumpkin Pancakes Board.

Pumpkin Pancake Board

I know, our days of connecting around a board for meals outdoors are dwindling down. It’s just as easy to pull the board down from my storage, and serve it inside. But outdoors is just a bit cozier. :) Oh, and don’t forget my Fall Epic Charcuterie Board (appetizers for a big Halloween party!)

BRUNCH Trader Joe’s EPIC Pumpkin Pancakes Board
When I was shopping in Trader Joe’s (TJ’s should thank me for this post!) for brunch foods, I was thinking “all things pumpkin.”

Breakfast or Brunch or Dinner

It wasn’t long before my basket was full, and we whipped up some pancakes, and enjoyed this epic breakfast board for brunch!

Use what you have, use what the world gives you. Use the first day of fall: bright flame before winter’s deadness; harvest; orange, gold, amber; cool nights and the smell of fire. Our tree-lined streets are set ablaze, our kitchens filled with the smells of nostalgia: apples bubbling into sauce, roasting squash, cinnamon, nutmeg, cider, warmth itself. The leaves as they spark into wild color just before they die are the world’s oldest performance art, and everything we see is celebrating one last violently hued hurrah before the black and white silence of winter. –Shauna Niequist

Best Trader Joe’s EPIC Pumpkin Pancakes Board

The colors are magnificent this year so I can hardly stand it!

They honestly make me pull the car, stop and get out and walk around. Do you ever do that?

And the smells of autumn. The wood burning stoves, scents in the kitchen, and then there’s “pumpkin” which I love.

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Kringle

Which is where I got the idea to make this Trader Joe’s EPIC Pumpkin Pancakes Board. Don’t you love a “one-stop” store, where you know you can pick up everything for one meal?

From the pumpkin pancakes to the (our favorite) pumpkin kringle (I noticed they are making these smaller now, which is perfect), add in figs and grapes.

Don’t forget the butter! (Oh, and the board? I’ll be selling my own line very soon. Watch for my pre-order links. FOOD SAFE, 2 sizes, and made in the USA).

How to keep the food hot?

Everyone asks how to keep the food hot, when serving on this board. My easy answer, and what we did for this board, is to make the pancakes and keep warm in the oven. Then serve everything hot at the same time and DIG IN.

Creating a meal for others, like serving this breakfast or brunch board, only strengthens our connection when gathered together!

And this board is easy to gather around :)
