What are your favorite things about fall?
That question might make you roll your eyes and groan, but nobody can deny that fall is truly a season of change. Like clockwork, the first few days of Pacific Northwest fall have been punctuated with crisp mornings. I'm already gravitating away from salads and cold smoothies in favor of warm broth soups and hot, fragrant drinks.
This morning was especially crisp on the outside and cozy on the inside - just like the banana pancakes I decided to whip up. :) I bust open my fall care package from Starbucks to enjoy some of it with my breakfast.
I was really excited to see some VIA Instant Coffee packages in the 'it' drink flavor of the season - the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Just as creamy and smooth as one that's made for you in-store! Jacob's mornings have been powered by this seasonal Fall blend as of late; we're already through one and a half of these bags!
Starbucks included a simple syrup kit and some cinnamon potpourri along with our coffee drinks - but what I really want to talk about is this spoon from Milk & Honey Luxuries:
How. Freaking. CUTE.
I'm all set to be huddled under blankets with a cup of warm coffee watching Seahawks games this season. Thanks Starbucks!
