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.
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
