Aunt Jean's Wassail

A few years ago when visiting Joe's Aunt Jean in Missouri she made Wassail for us. I loved it and I am not a fan of hot drinks. I have made it a couple of times since then for my family and the other day my mom was asking for the recipe. I thought I would share it with you.


2 quarts apple juice
2 Cups orange juice
2 1/4 Cup pineapple juice
1 Cup lemon juice
1/2 Cup sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1 teaspoon cloves

Simmer covered for 20 minutes, then simmer uncovered for an additional 20 minutes, strain and serve warm.

Happy Thanksgiving

To all of you in the US Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you had a wonderful day with your family and friends and good food. Today it was 79 degrees here and we spent the day with my husband's family. I made Pioneer Woman's Sweet Potatoes and A mexican sweet corn pudding (this is a similar recipe). I thought I would share a few things that I am thankful for.

I am thankful for my two beautiful and healthy children who taught me that love is something so huge that it can't truly be put into words.

I am thankful for my husband who loves me very much.

I am thankful that I have everything I could ever need in life and most everything that I could ever want also.

I am thankful for my family who I know will always be there for me, even if they don't always agree with me.

I am thankful for all of my wonderful friends that are so generous, selfless, and giving and show me the kids of person that I strive to be.

Thank you all!
