Pancakes done 2 ways and some good news from Bayfest

I've gotten my routine down now that I'm staying home full time. My life is less stressful and I'm more happy then I ever thought I would be. My hubby isn't eating a cereal bar for breakfast anymore and I fix him something more filling to start his day off with. He wanted some pancakes this week so I thought I would do them 2 ways. His favorite is chocolate chip, but I made a second version to get him to try something new, plus I had a banana to use up so it worked out great.

Oh and before I forget I want to share some good news with you! Last weekend I went down to Corpus Christi to attend the Bayfest. I submitted 3 photos into the contest and all 3 where chosen to be on display. I was so excited. 2 of the 3 photos got ribbons and I won $150!

Here's the photo I named "Seen Better Days" which won 2nd place.

This photo I named "Round Top Texas Church Reborn" and got honorable mention.

1 banana, mashed
1/2 cup toasted pecans, chopped

Stir ingredients until blended, except chocolate chips. Pour 1/4 cup spoonfuls onto hot greased griddle.
