Today is National Coffee Day, and after a quick Google search I learned that October 4th is National Vodka Day. So I figured to honor both holidays I would mix the two together.
It’s Saturday night, and after a long day of running errands, grocery shopping, cleaning this house that seems to manifest clutter while I am sleeping, and visiting the booth of my fellow blogger Scrapsecrets at the Woodbury Fall Arts Fest (check out her Etsy shop if you are in need of a card for a special occasion – she makes the most adorable cards!), I’m pretty beat. So I went the easy route when making tonight’s drink. I opened a bottle of Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino, poured it into a glass over ice and then added a shot of my new fall fave – Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie vodka. I admit it, I am obsessed with this stuff. I promise, my next post will involve something else!
Of course, it was good. How could it not be?
In other pumpkin news, I had been thinking of making pumpkin chocolate chip muffins (is there a National Muffin Day??). However, while wandering around Wegmans loading up my cart with all kinds of unnecessary but yummy goodies I saw a bag of Hershey’s cinnamon chips on the shelf. You know where those ended up.
I loved the combo of the cinnamon chip in the pumpkin muffin, and I topped them with cinnamon streusel which was really good too. I just wasn’t a fan of the pumpkin muffin recipe I used. They weren’t moist enough for me. Does anyone have a good pumpkin muffin recipe? I love the ones at Dunkin Donuts but I’m going to bet they wouldn’t be willing to tell me how to make my own.
