As part of a share-your-story program for Kellogg’s Love Your Cereal, I’m writing a series of weekly posts about breakfast routines, nutrition and all the million-and-one reasons why we should love cereal!
This week’s topic is: Do you have a yearly morning tradition that your family participates in? Maybe everyone cooks a special breakfast on Halloween weekend?
You know, we don’t. But I’m going to start one! I think it would be really nice to have a special breakfast for every holiday. Since fall is upon us and gourds are starting to show up in the grocery store I thought it would be really yummy to make pumpkin muffins and pumpkin spiced lattes. Right now I’m visiting some friends in Texas and when I told them my idea they were up for trying it out the next morning.
The family that makes muffins together stays together…or something. We had a lot of fun mixing things in the kitchen.
Canned pumpkin can be very gloopy. Maybe next year I’ll try the real thing.
We baked them up in muffin tins and then attempted to dribble some glaze on top. I think our glaze recipe needs some work.
Then we made pumpkin spice lattes which are basically just steamed milk with some sugar and pumpkin spice added to it, served on top of coffee. (More milk than coffee for the kids and more coffee than milk for the grown-ups.) They were delicious!
I could do this once a year or maybe more…
