Warm Holidays, Warm Cheeks

Soooooooooooooooooooo...... I've kinda been outta the loop due to the unfortunate passing of my dearly departed full-time employment. I'll miss ya ol' buddy. We were the best of friends & you made my life interesting. Welp, now that that's over n done, what have I been thinking about? Surely I am looking for a job... Well, it seems one found me! Wild Curl PhotoGraphics is about to be official. Yes, you read correctly. I am going at it on my own in graphic arts w. a little photography thrown in.

More on that in future posts. For now...it's a bit drizzly outside & very gray, so I want to talk about warm things like Holidays, cozy slippers, apple smelling things, combined with glowing candles and how about some mulled wine? I hadn't tasted this SCRUMDILLYUMPTEOUS treat until last year at a Swanson Christmas party. It is somethin' for sure and def something I want to share!

Thanks to the lovely folks at saveoncrafts (tempting site...sooooo tempting), I'm able to share a very simple, VERY yummy recipe with you, my Tribe. I hope you'll try it. Most of the alcohol simmers out for those Holiday parties (but still, don't take any chances) & you can use any red wine you really love! Here it is:

Ted's Mulled Wine
Pour two bottles of red wine into a saucepan. Slice two oranges and add to the saucepan, along with eight cloves, one cinnamon stick and 4 T. of brown sugar. Simmer at least 10 minutes making sure you do not boil the mixture. Sprinkle with nutmeg before serving.

And there you have it.
Serve warm w/ ginger snap cookies or some other crunchy fave for dipping! Yes, hard to believe, but it really is a treat for the Holiday blues upon realizing you have to wrap all those discounts you scored!
Enjoy! So happy to be back in action (and posting from home).
My love to all!!!! -Your Wild Curl
