Pumpkin Spice Latte Variations

Pumpkin spice season seemed to have actually started back in about August. Products started creeping in on the shelves at stores (I’m looking at you, Trader Joe’s!) and all of the memes started flooding my feed. In September, it started to feel a bit more acceptable, as the fall season technically starts. And of course, October is the month that there’s no holds barred when it comes to all things pumpkin. You can even keep it going through November and get away with it.

But grabbing those pumpkin spiced lattes on the go can add up quite quickly. Yes, the bonus points are great, but your pocketbook may not always be appreciative of the addiction. Or now that the weather is getting colder, you may not feel like trying to go out into elements to get your tasty treat. Just imagine curling up with a tasty cup of fall flavors while curled up on the couch. (I know, sometimes it is a total pipe dream, but we’re imagining, right?) So here are a few ways to go about it.

Chicken and Waffles with Maple and Sriracha for Brunch

The first time one of the local barbecue restaurants advertised having chicken and waffles on the menu, I felt my stomach lurch and shuddered. That just sounded gross. When I was in Chicago for a Pearl Jam weekend, we did stop at one place for breakfast that had them featured on the menu. Honestly, I can’t remember if I tried them or not. So they must have been quite uneventful.

Then the bar and grill by my house decided to try them on the menu one night. Being a regular, I had the honor of being the first to sample them. My huge stack arrived with a lot of creamy maple sauce, a few dots of sriracha, and maple syrup to pour over them. I was impressed at how tasty they were and even suggested a bit more heat to give it flavor. (I am not one for a lot of heat in my food.)
