Yesterday morning, I had the Food Network on while I was in the shower and getting ready for my day. I love “The Kitchen” which is on the Food Network on Saturday mornings. If I happen to be getting ready at the same time “The Kitchen” is on, I make sure to have it on.
Yesterday, someone was using pumpkin pie spice for a recipe and Katie (who is one of the hosts on the show) mentioned that she likes to add pumpkin pie spice to her morning coffee. I do head to Starbucks for at least one Pumpkin Spice Latté between October and November. That day for me was last week. It was a little drizzly here and was the perfect warm-up on a chilly morning. I usually get a hot tea or plain coffee when I’m at Starbucks because I try not to drink my calories (except in wine … they say red wine is good for us, who am I to question, LOL?! I do enjoy a glass of red wine when I’m at book club or out with friends. I have a few book clubs, and a lot of friends, so I know I’m doing good things for my heart … a glass of red wine, great discussions and lots of laughs, also good for my heart.)
Anyway, back to my morning cup of coffee today. I remembered what Katie mentioned on “The Kitchen” yesterday morning and I really wanted to try that in my coffee today. Katie didn’t say whether she added creamer or not, but I always do.
I always add my creamer to my cup before adding the coffee. This ensures the creamer gets mixed in while the coffee is being poured in the cup. No need to stir! Today, I added the creamer and a pinch of pumpkin pie spice to my cup, poured the coffee in and enjoyed a wonderful cup of coffee.
I thank Katie for this fine tip yesterday morning, I’m now enjoying my second cup of coffee.
