One of my favorite things about fall is all the pumpkin flavored goodies that are out to torture my waistline! Pumpkin loafs, pumpkin cakes (for a yummy tasting pumpkin pound cake recipe check out Happier Than A Pig In Mud), pumpkin doughnuts and pumpkin spiced lattes.... YUM!
Recently, I have spent some hard-earned money on a couple of Pumpkin Spiced Lattes at our local Dunkin' Donuts. I have a difficult time spending that much money on a cup of flavored coffee (but they're SOOoo yummy and only come around once a year!) So instead of doing without or spending that much money I decided to go online and find a recipe that I could make at home (sorry T, it's a recipe *smile*!). I found several of them, made one, didn't care for it, so I tried a second one. Step aside DD... you've got nothin' on this recipe! And, the price is right! Check it out if you like anything pumpkin!
Pumpkin Spiced Latte
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used pure vanilla)
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger brewed espresso (this country girl has no clue what that is so I brewed my coffee the regular way but doubled the amount of grounds I would normally use)
Brew your 'espresso'. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, whisk together the pumpkin, vanilla, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and milk. Warm over medium heat, whisking constantly, until hot and frothy. Do not bring to a boil. Pour the espresso into a mug and pour the pumpkin spiced milk over it.
Makes 1 serving.

Mmmm! I can't tell you how many times I said that while drinking it.... I couldn't help it! Country Boy was laughing at me!
I haven't dug out my fall decorations yet. It's still too hot even though we've had the house opened up all week. It needs to be a tad cooler before I'll get into the decorating mode although, I did manage to put a fall arrangement out that I made a few years ago...
I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!
Till next time,
