It was just three days ago I wrote about peace in my heart. The lasted about the time it took me to write it. Guys, it’s stressful, but I am not giving up.
It was just the reminder I needed.
I love a good Santa, and boy do I have a collection. This is my favorite.
The Cocktail – Spiked Mulled Cider
I needed something warm and easy as I worked on finishing our Christmas cards.
1 small pot
The Ingredients: (Makes two cocktails)
2 c apple cider
1 cinnamon stick
5 whole cloves
2 star anise
orange rind or slices
4 oz bourbon or whiskey, divided
The Treat – Triple Roasted Onion Sauce
1 large red onion
1 large sweet onion
1 large white onion
6 sprigs of fresh thyme leaves
1 T olive oil
pinch of salt, pepper
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 c mayo
Roll or toast bread or baguette
Roast beef, sirloin, filet, ham
That list is endless
Before we begin, I wasn’t sure how this would turn out, and so I don’t have enough step by step pictures and for that I apologize. It ended up tasting different then I thought and instead of a dip recipe, I have a new sauce.
This is where this goes down hill because no photos.
In the food processor, pulse the onions until fine. Add the cream cheese and mayo, blend until combined. Let stand in the fridge for 30 minutes or more so the flavors have time to chill out. Taste for additional salt and pepper.
When I dipped a chip, it tasted good, but they didn’t go together. The only thing I could think of was a roast beef sandwich.
Merry, Merry, Friends –
