WyoNella has requested the recipe for Gulhwein, I sent a jug home with her and apparently it disappeared over Thanksgiving.  Here it is.  Enjoy,kiddo.


750 ml wine

2/3 C sugar

1 lemon, sliced thinly

2 cardamom pods

2 star anise

4 cloves

2 bay leaves

2 cinnamon sticks

Throw it all a pan and warm.  If you use a crock pot you will want to double the recipe.  Mostly because the crock pot is too big for that little amount and besides, the more….the more better.  You can use any drinkable red wine, but I use the Blackberry because when we were in Germany, my Honey liked the blueberry gulhwein and I can’t find that around here.
Well, think  we are about ready for Christmas (round 1) here.  The only one still put out of joint about the whole thing is my blogging buddy Kylie.

She got moved from in front of the french door to in front of the kitchen window, so we could put up the Christmas tree.  We have a bird feeder outside the window and there are still some some of my little yellow friends around that like to come and eat.  Here she is trying to scare them away….not that she would eat their food anyway…people food is her thing.

Big Bully!!!
