Giveaway is over, 'cuz we have a winnnner!!!
Two very important events are happening today!
One - Today's blog is my 200th entry! Wow! Therefore, there must be a giveaway! I'll explain what it is in a bit.
Two - It's September 1!!! What does this mean? You mean you don't know??? Well, let me spill the coffee beans -- this is the official day for Starbuck's to begin serving fall drinks, namely - Pumpkin Spice Lattes!
Pumpkins! Roley-Poley orange orbs of happiness! Use them for decorations, soups, muffins, lanterns, pies, lattes, seeds, color, throwing contests (if you're a 15-year-old boy out with your buddies on Halloween), fun, to scare. The pumpkin's delights are multifarious!
You just know my innards were snapping to celebrate! Not wanting to drive to Starbuck's, which would mean spoiling my luscious morning's loll, I strolled into the kitchen and concocted my own version of the famous Pumpkin Spice Latte.
So, with much fanfare over in my house (clapping my hands and saying "yippeeeee," simultaneously), I introduce to you Liz's Pumpkin Pie Latte!
All that needs to be done for this pumpkiny beverage is this: heat up some milk, canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, marshmallow creme, and sugar if you like it sweeter than sweet. Play around with the amounts of all these, till your taste buds are smiling wide! Then, add some hot coffee, stir, close your eyes, and take a sip. And then another. And another. :)
And now... the Giveaway! To celebrate my 200th entry, I am going to give away a $10 Starbuck's card! That way, you can celebrate with me as you sip your own favorite latte or mocha.
All you have to do to enter to win this trip to Latte Land is leave me a comment about fall. It can be one sentence OR a whole autumn recipe OR instructions for a fall decoration OR a favorite fall family tradition. Anything, really. The one who will soon be visiting the barista/baristo will be announced on Thursday morning!
Oh! Remember, the official fall countdown began when you flipped your calendar! Only 21 more days to go till the first day of FALL! Yippeeee!
