Home for Halloween.

Well, we got home just in time for Halloween...Marny's first ever!! Actually, we got home on Hallows Eve. Brad and Rochelle made an epic feast of salad, duck, pork loin, onion dip, homemade bread and a red wine coli. Bah. So amazing. Julie brought ginger cookies that were divine, and I made some soup and spiced cider. It was great to be back home and be with my Dad...being away from family when they're hurting is never easy. He didn't make it too long - but we drank and ate enough for a small army....


2 quarts apple cider
2 oranges, sliced
1 apple, cut in half
whole clove (4)

Pour cider into pot. Throw orange clives in. Stick the whole cloves into the apple. Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice in. Bring to a boil and then let simmer. To make this an alcoholic beverage...add DARK RUM and enjoy :)
