It snowed last week. No.
Although I guess if I had a glass of this holiday spiced mulled wine I MIGHT not have been so annoyed. That’s a lie. I probably would have been annoyed BUT I would have been a lot happier because this holiday spiced mulled wine is awwwwwwwwsome! I mean to be fair I’m pretty much on board with anything that involves wine. I’m such a sucker for those boozy little grapes.
Ohhhhh you guys! I totally almost forgot. We adopted another cat!!! Her name is Cinnamon and we are calling her Cyn for short. She is a Torbie and she is awesome. She got her teeth cleaned today (which involves anesthesia) so she is currently staring at the wall like a complete weirdo BUT I have hopes she will be normal in the morning. Although I’m slightly annoyed at the shelter we adopted her from. When we got her they said she was probably somewhere around 3-5 years old. As soon as my vet saw her she was all “ummm, there is no way this cat is 3-5 years old. Honestly, she is probably more like 10 years old.” Um, what? I’m not going to take her back (I’m not a monster and I already love her) but WHAT THE HECK! I know aging a cat isn’t an exact science but COME ON! Being off by that many years is sorta misleading. I’m debating calling the shelter and letting them know.
Here is a picture of her adorable face. She is seriously soooooo sweet! Plus her little orange spot on the top of her head makes me swoon.
Now you know I’ve been working with American Kitchen this year and this beautiful little libation was made for them and (as previously discussed!) you’ll love it! I used their 6-quart premium stainless steel stock pot and it was the perfect size for this cocktail. PLUS this handles stay cool – YES!
