Day 3: Pumpkin Puree & Better than Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte


Every year we go to eastern Washington over Labor Day to visit the grandparents and attend the county fair.  And every morning is the same cozy routine.  The girls head upstairs, while granny makes them breakfast and we sleep in.  Upon waking, we casually sit on the couch drinking coffee as the girls play.  

A hot cup of coffee, simple as that, stirs up the aroma of nostalgia when I picture a Saturday morning at G&G's.  No need for anything flashy, just freshly ground coffee beans and a splash of heavy whipping cream.  This emanates comfort & young children relaxation.  

Although this cup after cup is just enough, I cannot help but find just one double tall Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks to speak of summer to fall transition during the weekend.  This year won't be any different, especially with our oldest entering into Kindergarten and the first leaves begin falling.  However, I wager to say that my homemade PSL ties or even beats Starbucks.  Did I mention I use real pumpkin puree and none of this "only syrup" nonsense?  

I bid you a chilly Autumn morning outside while you stay warm with this cup of pumpkin goodness in your hands.  In case you aren't a big PSL fan, you can try the Caramel Latte.
