I’m on a mission. (Cue Batman Theme Song). No but really, this will all be so much more fun if you actually listen to the song.
If you don’t understand this…go watch Batman. Now.
Unfortunately my brother just informed me that as I am not actually Batman I need to get my own theme song. I’ll figure that out after I finish the 743 other things on my to-do list…it may be a few years :)
Despite the fact that I am not a superhero with a fantastic car and a mysterious persona with the cape to match I do still have a mission. Summon fall. My theory is that the more fall-esque things I bake the quicker Mother Nature will act like it is fall. As a part of this endeavor I have made Pumpkin Chai Tea Lattes (and encourage you to do the same, so that way your taste buds will love you AND fall will come that much faster).
But you came here to read about food, didn’t you? And you can’t eat a sweater. Or you shouldn’t. I guess you could. Please don’t.
Instead: Bring four cups of water to a boil. I know this is difficult but I believe in you. You are strong, and smart, and beautiful, we will climb this mountain together. Just turn on the gosh darn stove.
I tried to go a whole hour without using sarcasm today. I failed. Epically. And then rolled on the ground laughing.
Anyways…I probably shouldn’t just leave you with a pot of rapidly boiling water on your hands. Turn off the stove and steep 4 Chai Tea Bags in the water for 5 minutes.
Since we all know I am incapable of sitting still for five seconds (let alone five minutes) I have plenty of projects for you in the meantime. YAY!
- Make vanilla pudding. Put in a mayonnaise jar. Eat in public.
- Walk into a crowded elevator and say “I bet you’re all wondering why I gathered you here today.
- In a large pan heat 1 can of coconut milk, an equivalent amount of whole milk (preferably local-aka from Predel’s), ¾ cup pumpkin puree, 2 tsp. cinnamon, and 2 Tbsp. maple syrup.
Whisk the tea with the milk concoction and top with whipped cream. Now pour a nice big mug of it for yourself and have a photo shoot with your dog. Because I said so.
Above would be the lovely latte, it was delicious.
Live, laugh, love, bake,
