I first had this at the home of Ed’s squadron commander. The squadron had deployed for a month, as they often did, and the commander’s wife had the task of keeping the rest of us entertained and happy.
Sue did just that. A bunch of us spent the day at her dining table, learning to make Bread (Salt) Dough Christmas Ornaments and sipping Mulled Wine — instant sisterhood.
I love to put on a pot of Grzane Wino before winter guests arrive. The aroma and warmth make it such an inviting way to welcome them into your home, and it couldn’t be easier!
