Celebrating Fall Traditional Tastes

pumpkincreamerI love simple traditions that are frugally, joyfully and easily completed. Some recipes and some traditions can be so expensive that we’d have to skip them because we are on tight budget.But with a little creativity we can continue to enjoy most of the traditional foods we eat each year

Keeping Our Traditions Affordable

One of my traditions is to buy seasonal creamers it just helps me get into a season. So each year I buy the pumpkin creamers as soon as they hit the shelves in the fall. But we are trying to tighten our purse strings so this year this frugal creamer recipe is being added to our fall traditional tastes.  As we turn off the air conditioning here in Texas (That’s right we run the AC in Texas well into October!)  and the leaves begin to turn from deep green to rust we begin to think of  and to enjoy all things fall.

Then McDaddy , McKids and I  all wistfully long for the familiar flavors of fall. So McDaddy and I will enjoy pumpkin flavored coffee in the morning while the kiddos will savor some pumpkin flavored hot chocolate. Here is the reciepe we will use this year graciously provided by Mrs. H.

Pumpkin Creamer Rrecipe
  • 1 cup coffee creamer
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon

  • 2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cloves

Combine & shake or mix. Pour into canning jars (or really any container with a lid and label). Easy breezy!

This Recipe makes two 1/2 pint jars which, due to being so tasty, do not last very long!

Now if you’d like to enjoy another one of our fall traditions you can always try a Pumpkin Pie Spice Latte. We normally try to enjoy this on the back patio, once the Texas Summer finally calls it quits.

This recipe is from my real life friend  Mrs. H at Heritage Schoolhouse

  1. I have a coffee boost every morning, and this pumpkin creamer sounds delicious. I’m going to make a batch. Glad that I can house it in canning jars since I have a ton of them around. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi there! I found your post over at The Art of Home-Making Mondays. I love the sound of spicy pumpkin coffee. I don’t use powdered creamer, but I think I’ll add some spice and cream to my coffee today. Thank you for the inspiration. Have a great day!

  3. Well, for the month of October, Jessica is following along with that whole blog every day on a ceratin topic thing that’s going on. I, personally, seem to be too fickle to commit to that sort of project. But her choice of topics has resonated with me big time: 31 Days of Smelling the Roses.
