Are you dressing up today? Tell me you are and tell me how cute you’re going to be.
I, as you know, still haven’t put out my Halloween decorations so you know I didn’t get a costume. I will put cat ears on and call it a done. But first I have to go searching through my shed to find the bin that contains the cat ears.
I’m so unprepared for the holidays. At 11 pm last night I was digging through my kids’ backpacks to see if there were notes about Halloween parties and if I needed to send anything.
I did buy lots of candy though. And I thought I was being smart by not buying any bags with Almond Joys because you know I can’t control myself around them.
But then I ate all the Baby Ruths.
I am here to help you through trick-or-treating. Because I know you’ve planned your route to circle back to your house for a boozy refill.
And I fully support that decision.
So on the way home from work today, I’m gonna need you to run by the grocery store for just 4 ingredients. You need a pear, some cinnamon sticks, a bottle of white wine, and some pear cider. And then as soon as you walk through the door, slice that pear up, put it in a big pitcher with the cinnamon sticks, and pour the entire bottle of wine over it so it’s ready to go by the time it’s dark.
So simple, so easy, and my new favorite. It’s bubbly and sweet but not too sweet. And the cinnamon makes it the perfect fall drink!
Cheers, y’all! May we all survive trick-or-treating!
- Combine pear slices, cinnamon sticks, and wine in a pitcher. Cover and let sit in fridge for a couple hours.
