Warm Mulled Wine

John and I went on a date last night to the Christ Kindle Market. We ate German food, drank yummy mulled wine (aka Gluhwein), and snacked on warm candied cashews. It was an absolute treat, and something I love to do every year in Chicago. 

(Traditional German Cookies... John and I are not fans of how they taste, but they are cute anyways.)

 (look at the grease on that window from the sausages! But, oh did they smell great...)
 (Hungry John! After waiting in three lines, he finally got his food!)
(Downtown Christmas tree... wonder how much energy is used to light that bad boy up?)

When I was living in Prague, one of my favorite drinks to enjoy on a cold night was mulled wine. Every time I sip on the sweet and spiced drink, it brings me back to 21 again. Here is Ina Garten's version that I found and thought I would share with you. I know I will be making this over the Holiday Season!

  1. I've never been to the Christ Kindle Market. Looks fun! I'll have to put it on my list for next year.

    Also- thanks for all the encouraging comments concerning the marathon. That is very sweet of you! Which Chicago 1/2 marathon you looking to run? I may put it on my list =)
