I love lattes. Love, love, love them! Okay, I guess you get the picture. My favorite flavoring is peppermint or mint, depending on what the coffee house has in stock. During the fall, I love pumpkin spice lattes, though.
Last week, I taught for half of a school day, attended a funeral and luncheon, walked over to the boys’ school to pick them up in extreme humidity, and then spent time with family. After all that, I needed a nap which I took. Once I woke up, I picked up the boys to go visit with my mom and her friend. I was still dragging, so I went to Starbucks and discovered they had pumpkin spice lattes a few days earlier than normal. I was so excited!!!
For the past few years, I’ve attempted to recreate the latte at home but was unsuccessful. If you don’t succeed, keep trying. This year I was finally successful. Yeah!
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
