Happy National Coffee Day!

Do you know what today is? For starters, it's my dad's birthday - happy 62nd, Pops! But today is also National Coffee Day! Random, ey? Seeing as how I drink about a pot of coffee each day, this is an observation I can totally get behind. And seeing as how it's a beautiful crisp, fall morning, I'm craving a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte! Just like their Gingerbread latte in December - and the McDonald's Shamrock Shake around St. Patrick's Day - I have to order at least one pumpkin spice coffee each year. Unfortunately, this java is not good on the waistline, packing 380-calories and  51g-carbs. And since I'm headed to Key West in two weeks and need to avoid those types of high-calorie treats, I'll be adopting the Hungry Girl version: combine 1 teaspoon of instant coffee, 1 Splenda packet, 1 teaspoon of  Jenny's Country Kitchen Pumpkin Pie dessert creamer and 6 oz. of hot water.  Stir. Add 1 oz. light vanilla soy milk and top with a squirt of Fat Free Reddi-Wip. Voila! A healthy liquid dessert is served!
