Pumpkin Spice Latte

posted Nov 3, 2020, 8:11 AM by Andrew Chadick   [ updated Nov 5, 2020, 12:23 PM ]

First: Thank you to Starbucks for posting your ingredients online - it inspired me to do this.

1 can Libby's Pumpkin (organic) approx 30 oz 
2 cans x 14 oz Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup honey
1/4 white sugar
14 large Tablespoons of brown sugar
4 Tablespoons of Vanilla
1 Teaspoon of Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 Teaspoon of Nutmeg
1 Teaspoon of All Spice
1/2 Teaspoon ground clove
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

In a large saucepan, over medium heat, pour in the contents of your sweetened condensed milk, add all the sugars, course and liquid, stirring regularly to combine.  When the mixture is smooth and evenly distributed, you can tell when that is...  

Move the contents of the saucepan over to a Vitamix or similar processor.  Add Pumpkin.  Add Whipping Cream and spices.  Blend.  Start slow, then move to medium, as it runs the cavitation will at times stop the overall mixture from combining thoroughly, so gradually increase speed.  Eventually (over a few minutes) you will be at max speed.  The color of the mixture will darken over the minutes that it's being processed.  This is important, because the ingredients if not mixed thoroughly will try to separate.  (If you do stop prematurely and you notice that the ingredients are separating in the dish, just move back to the processor and run for a couple more minutes.)  When done, the mixture should be thick, not runny.  It needs to be spooned and extracted out using a soft baking spatula.  Put the contents in to container like Tupperware, with a sealable lid that can be locked down, and put in the fridge.  

Espresso (2 shots), Steamed Milk (or cheat, and microwave your milk). For a 16 Ounce Coffee Drink.
Make your latte, spoon in 3 heaping teaspoons of the pumpkin mixture, stir well, and enjoy.

SUDO PICO  /etc/default/grub
Locate and change GRUB_DEFAULT=0  
Change to 2,3,4 depending on how many entries are in your boot loader.

Typical Linux is line 0, then a Memory Test is Line 1, then Windows is Line 2.  So if you want Windows, set it:
GRUB_DEFAULT=2

Then Press and Hold   CNTRL and then press X
When it asks to save, press Y and press Enter.

When back to command line, type:   SUDO Update-Grub and press enter.  Then SUDO Halt -P  to shutdown.  Then test your handy work.

Manage Windows 10 devices through the G Suite Admin console

Posted: 16 Jan 2020 01:45 PM PST

What’s changing 

We’re enabling enhanced desktop security for Windows with a new beta. This will allow you to manage and secure Windows 10 devices through the Admin console, just as you do for Android, iOS, Chrome, and Jamboard devices today. It will also enable SSO so users can more easily access G Suite and other SSO-enabled applications on Windows 10 devices.

With these new controls G Suite admins can:

  • Enable their organization to use existing G Suite account credentials to login to Windows 10 devices, and easily access apps and services with SSO 
  • Protect user accounts with anti-phishing, anti-hijacking, and suspicious login detection technologies 
  • Ensure that all Windows 10 devices used to access G Suite are updated, secure, and within compliance 
  • Perform admin actions, such as wiping a device and pushing device configuration updates, to Windows 10 devices from the cloud without specific network requirements

Sign up for the Beta on this:
