Pumpkin cream liqueur is great as a warm drink with frothed milk, or as a cold drink, with ice and milk in a cocktail shaker. However a pumpkin cake martini is my favorite way to drink it, which just requires the addition of a cake vodka, such as UV Cake or Three Olives Cake.
Until this week, I had never tried macarons...you know, the French cookies that Americans tend to call macaroons. If you're looking for more information, The Kitchn has an interesting post on macarons vs macaroons.
I hadn't planned to get macarons from two different places the same day, it was just a happy coincidence that Chris was going to Rocket Baby for a baguette and I had lunch near Le Rêve. I preferred the taste of Le Rêve's, especially the pistachio one.
This week I have gotten back into the habit of making smoothies for breakfast. A vegan friend of the family recently shared a smoothie recipe that I'm now making. The ingredients include an apple, an orange, flax seeds, frozen berries and greens (I've been using frozen chopped collard greens).
Oh, and cup of juice. I've used both orange juice and apple cider this week. I like to pour my smoothie into a 20 oz plastic container, so I can drink some for breakfast and take the remainder with me to work.
