A Belated Thanksgiving

A small Thanksgiving gathering was held tonight.  Our host was a real good cook.  He had made a full roasted turkey, topped with mashed potatoes, breadcrumbs, berry jam and creamy herbal gravy.  The rich pumpkin pancake with whiskey whipped cream being served after the main course simply filled up your belly, barely leaving a tiny gap for a glass or two of the fruity mulled wine - a tradition Christmas drink in Germany.  It is quite easy to make.

Pour the red wine into a large pot and begin heating in low temperature (do not boil). Add cinnamon, cloves and sugar. Heat thouroughly, then add sliced lemons or oranges. Simmer the mixture over low heat for another half an hour and it is done.

Whoops! A Mouthwatering affair.
