Yummy Wednesday - Warm Apple Cider

Mmmm...  A cold, snowy day.  What could be better than some of my mom's yummy warm apple cider?!  No pictures of this one...  It's not very pretty...  But it is Oh So Good.  (And I usually don't even like cider!)  We made this a few weeks ago for our Halloween cook-out - and everyone commented on the cider!  So go nuts!

Warm Apple Cider

You'll need:
2 quarts apple cider
1 cup lemon juice
1 cup packed brown sugar
8 whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks

To make:
1)  Place ingredients in a large saucepan.  Bring mixture to a boil - stir.
2)  Reduce heat to a simmer for 10-20 minutes.  Remove spices before serving.

(You can also use a crockpot!)


Things I am thankful for today:

1.  Going in to work late.
2.  Bread machines.
3.  Warm, fresh laundry.
4.  "Yes we can, can" nail polish.
5.  Dinner with friends.
6.  Beautiful snow.
7.  A Thanksgiving church service.
8.  A happy dog.
9.  Uplifting notes.
10.  The "Gratitude Tree."
