That time of the yr is inevitably approaching. The time when the foliage begin their natural color change, the air is crisp, and falling in love (all over again) is ideal.
The first gift that I ever received from my husband (also happened to be the first time we met in person…yep, we are an online couple!) was a poem, handwritten by him on a piece of opaque paper. Behind the paper was an image of fall w/ the trees & their fallen leaves lining a barren road. It’s beautiful! That was 12 yrs ago & now the piece of art hangs in our living room.
I LOVE autumn b/c for me it signals a slew of holidays coming. Not to mention, fall festivities are so much fun! They totally prepare you for the holiday spirit.
But nothing screams the initial approach of fall more than latte sipping tendencies… pumpkin spice latte that is. Today, I join what most cafes have been doing for the last week or so, making & thoroughly enjoying my very own version of pumpkin spice latte.
I made pumpkin spice latte the unconventional way. I am by no means a recipe follower & you can probably tell by the way I randomly add ingredients here & there. Hey, as long as it turns out yummy, I’m OK.
1. In a mug, add 6 cubes of sugar, 1/4 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice mix, and brewed espresso to about 3/4th mug full. Mix well.
2. Steam about 1/4th cup soy milk. I have a frother so it steams & froths at the same time.
3. Add steamed soy milk into the espresso/pumpkin spice mixture. Stir well.
4. LOAD with whipped cream & sprinkle pumpkin pie spice mix on top.
‘Til next post, Kellie.
