Lovely Monday

August Break #4

Latte Macchiato – I’ve never seen it on the menu here in Canada, but in The Netherlands it’s quite popular. Starbucks has the caramel macchiato and this is basically the same without all the sugary stuff. I love its simplicity, just steamed milk and espresso poured on top rather than in the bottom like a regular latte. Macchiato means ‘marked’ and shots are poured on top of the foam, thus marking the foam. I made this at home the other day and it made me feel connected to my mom and sister who ordered this all the time when we went out during my visit to Holland in May. It’s funny how food can have that effect.

A little display I made in my living room with Kitty hanging out next to it.

Wishing you a great week!
