this week i watched muppet christmas carol and it’s a wonderful life, made mince pies and mulled wine and started to get excited about christmas.
and i also ate this nice dinner – roasted butterbeans, tomatoes and brocolli with cous cous…
mulled wine recipe
half a cinnamon stick
2 cardamom pods
pinch of grated nutmeg
rind and juice of 1 orange
bottle of red wine
put all the spices, sugar and orange rind and juice in a pan and pour over enough wine so that it’s just covered. then boil until it’s all syrupy. turn to low and add the rest of the wine and maybe a cup of water if you like (i like). it smells and tastes amazing!
