The following post was written Sunday Morning at 8:30 AM.
So this morning as I'm trying to enjoy my MMM (Mocha Movie Morning) I set my latte down on the side table in the living room and walk away to go to the bathroom (TMI? whatev).
As I'm in the bathroom I hear a loud lapping sound.
I wash my hands and hurry out to the living room to see that my worst nightmare has come true.(Ok, maybe not my WORST nightmare, after all, the world has not run out of milk, cereal and chocolate, but a close second.)
Someone drank my latte!
And not just anyone, but a furry, slobbery four legged one! Which means not only is my latte totally gone, which in itself is a horrible tragedy, but is now splattered all over the table, couch and floor.
So after throwing Dozer out the window (Totally kidding, you think I could really pick that dog up?) I clean up the mess.
So now I've missed half of my movie, and no longer have a mocha. This morning is turning into a MMMM (Messy Missed Movie Morning) instead of a MMM. So I decided that I deserve something better than a MMM, yes, I deserve a DHPSLMMSD! (Delicious Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Movie Morning Sans Dog)
Oh yeah, I made my own Pumpkin Spice Latte and am enjoying it right now as I watch my movie.
Now you can have a DHPSLMMSD too! And here's how:
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte
2 cups milk
1 cup very strong coffee
2 T canned pumpkin
2 T white sugar
2 T vanilla
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Over medium heat, combine coffee and milk in a saucepan. After the mixture is warm, not boiling, whisk in the pumpkin, sugar, vanilla & pumpkin spice. Continue to heat to desired temperature. If you want a foamy latte, continue whisking as it heats.
Pour into large coffee cups and garnish with whipped cream and sprinkle with extra pumpkin pie spice. Makes 3 servings (1 cup each).
I like to keep mine low fat so I used skim milk and Cool Whip Free.
It was delicious!
Now just add your favorite movie (this time of year I suggest Elf) and you've got your very own DHPSLMMSD!
Just make sure you send your dog outside first.
