Pumpkin Spice Latte

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.
