In the meanwhile I shall continue to wallow in my misery of illness. Cheered myself up yesterday by making this. It is called gluhwein, the German version of mulled wine. Bottle of red wine, a quartered lemon studded with cloves, a sliced orange, a cinnamon stick, good pinch of allspice and 50 grams of sugar, all in a bowl and microwaved for about 6 minutes until almost boiling. Then add 60 mL of brandy and drink while hot. Very very nice. This is the recipe you used to use mum, that you gave me a copy of, so thanks! x
I finished reading Dan Brown's Inferno this week. Was good! I'm all enthused about art history again, he really makes it interesting and exciting.
