Pumpkin Spice Lattes

The first herald of my favorite season? It comes before the leaves change, before the mornings get nippy and before my cat starts sleeping under the covers with me...

...Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte. Tall, nonfat, one pump for me please. Mmm. It appeared a few weeks ago.

At this point, the leaves are changing, the mornings are nippy, and I have lost all the bedspace I enjoyed during the summer. And yet another herald of autumn, which I had forgotten about, appeared in my grocery cart yesterday.


The Pumpkin Spice Kiss. It's like my favorite drink made spillproof (albeit with less caffeine). I'm blissfully ignoring the ingredient list because I'm pretty sure it would depress me.

My favorite use for these babies?

I drop a couple in my morning coffee and stir until melted. Then I splash in my usual milk. It's not a Starbucks' Latte but it will tide me over. I also like to drop a couple into some warm milk and let the kids have Pumpkin Steamers.

Oh, by the way:

Looks like I have to go back to my Norwegian sweater. Until my order for this hat arrives.

  1. Cute sweater! I'm making pumpkin spice cupcakes(w/ maple cream cheese frosting) for a wedding this weekend--somthing is in the air!!

  2. *grumbles* All this autumn talk while we are still running our a/c 24/7 is making me dissatisfied with life.

  3. Oh man, two things about this time of year I love. Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Sam Adams Octoberfest. Fall is different here though—it's pretty much less hot. Um, Tara? I want that recipe.

  4. Shaddup.

    Actually, I'll just do my share of gloating next February when we're going to the beach and you'll be griping about when the snow/slush/mud is going to end.
