The other day while at the supermarket I treated myself to a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice coffee. So YUMMY! However, doling out five bucks for a coffee every morning is simply NOT in my budget. So when I saw this I jumped on it –
Not at all a comparison to Starbucks pumpkin spice. A huge disappointment because I found myself daydreaming about that pumpkin spice coffee, but there was no way I was going to fork out another FIVE bucks for a cup of coffee. Not to mention that each cup holds 13 grams of fat – YEP – 13 GRAMS.
Enter the good ole’ Internet and into the search engine I typed – “How do I make Starbucks pumpkin spice coffee” and there it was – all sorts of recipes telling me how to quench this new screaming addiction. So… through a few trials of a little of this and a little of that, I found the following compromise –
2 cups of regular coffee
1/4 c fat-free french vanilla
1/4 c regular french vanilla
1 Tbsp Libby’s Pumpkin (not pictured)
1 tsp regular sugar
1 tsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp of pumpkin spice
Mix everything but the coffee, in a separate cup and heat up in the microwave for a minute and a half – combine hot coffee and hot cream mixture and Enjoy!
You’re gonna love it!
Here are some of the items I put out before our yummy cheeseburgers…
French baguette – toasted and not toasted. The beautiful red and white roses are courtesy of the husband coming home early Friday evening.
This stuff, Popcornopolis, amazing! This particular blend is Zebra Chocolate Popcorn, which I’m eating as I type this post. Note to Popcornopolis, add peanuts to this blend!
Last, but definitely not least the yummiest of yummy – Caprese Salad.
What did you do Memorial Day weekend? Leave me a link to your blog!
Have you ever come across something and you know in the deepest part of your core it is the perfect gift for a certain someone? That’s what happened to me last month when I was introduced to the jewelry at Two Sisters Gallery.
While strolling the website I picked my favorites, below, for that special day when I can come back and buy some for myself. Then again, maybe I should send this post link to my husband. Anonymously. Hmmm… I’ll let you know how that plays out, but for now go visit Two Sisters Gallery and maybe buy yourself a little something. Trust me… I don’t think you will be at all disappointed.
