Glitter Chai Latte

Hey, this is an extremely late post for Tea Tuesdays. But I had a Glitter Chai latte. It is so delicious! Why I love it? It has a medium Chai spice to it. I love being able to taste the cloves and cinnamon. And bonus, it has edible glitter in it.

This mug was a Christmas present from my uncle a few years back, and I finally found it again packed away in one of my containers. I used to keep this mug at my mother’s house. I really missed this mug, but I am happy that I am using it again.

Let it Snow Latte

It’s another Tuesday which means it’s another edition of Tea Tuesdays. Earlier I had enjoyed Let it Snow in one of my winter mugs. It tastes like eggnog. It has a nice sweet cinnamon flavour with cloves. It is amazing! I love eggnog, and I look forward to it every year.

I love this mug, my boyfriend bought it for me a few years ago.

Sweet Potato Pie Latte

Every Tuesday, (sometimes I post late), but I talk about tea and I feature a different mug.

Although I haven’t tried the actual dessert before, but I have heard it is a big thing in the States to have for Thanksgiving. It’s basically sweet potatoes with marshmallows as a pie. I love the tea so I would love to try this.

It’s a black tea with a sweet taste from the marshmallows and the sweet potato. It has a nice dash of cinnamon to it. I made this into a latte, and added some additional cinnamon to garnish. It made my latte look extra delicious.

The mug I used is a Valentine’s Day present from my boyfriend. It says “I’ll give you the moon” on one side and then on the other side it says, “and all the stars”. It is such a beautiful mug.

Cinnamon Raisin Toast

My boyfriend made us breakfast today. He made us cinnamon raisin toast with peanut butter topped with banana slices. Then he sliced up an apple and he gave himself three slices but he gave me five, how nice. We dipped our apples in caramel dip. That was delicious! After that he made us Italian Wedding soup – one of our favourites.

Ooh he made me tea as well.

Or maybe I got sick since I stopped eating my apple a day.

Pumpkin French Toast

I had breakfast with my boyfriend today, it was great as usual. Today we made Pumpkin French Toast.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 9 slices Texas toast (or other white bread such as Challah or French bread)
  • Butter, for griddle

Directions

  • Preheat an electric griddle to 350 degrees (a non-stick skillet set over medium heat also works fine). In a mixing bowl whisk together milk, pumpkin puree, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger until well combined. Pour into a shallow dish.
  • Butter griddle and dip bread into egg mixture (allowing a few seconds for it to absorb mixture. I also squeeze gently to soak the mixture to center), then rotate and coat opposite side. Transfer to griddle and cook until golden brown on bottom, then lift, butter griddle once more and flip french toast to opposite side and cook until golden brown. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.

Him and I used Cinnamon Raisin Bread and since we only used five slices of bread, we decided to just add three eggs instead of four.

We also made Earl Grey Vanilla tea. My boyfriend makes the best tea. We added a little bit of butter to our finished product as well as sugar and cinnamon.

Fried Cinnamon Raisin Bread with Banana and Nutella

I sliced up a banana and then I spread Nutella on one slice of my cinnamon raisin bread. On the other piece I placed the banana slices. Then bring the pieces on top of each other.

In a small frying pan I added some butter to grease the pan then placed my sandwich in the pan. Once the bread becomes golden flip and let the other side cook.

Then serve!

It wasn’t bad, I wasn’t certain as to what I thought it would have tasted. I would have it again.

French Toast

My boyfriend made us French toast and peanut butter cookies for breakfast.

We topped our toast with raspberries, sugar and cinnamon. I also drizzled a bit of syrup.

He also made us a cup of green tea. It was a joyous breakfast. 🙂 ❤
