Recipe Red Velvet Pancakes

Today we decided to make our Red Velvet Pancakes for our early Valentines Day Breakfast. Our anniversary is on Friday and since its such a busy day, we try to do things either early or later. That way I am sure to get lots of attention. Hee Hee. It’s kind of like people that have birthday weeks or months. I have a long anniversary.  You can also visit my post here that talks about this recipe for 4th of July.  Oh, I am now on bloglovin, you can follow me here.

So for this Valentines Day recipe, I did want to make them into hearts but time got away as we were trying to be on time for church.
