    Sounds terrific, Ingunn. ‘Can’t wait to try it.

    I found this recent article in the New York Times in case anyone is interested in learning more about glogg. They have a recipe in the second link.

    Ingunn, I was thinking of bringing some glogg, but if you have that covered, then I can bring something else. Since I can’t leave work early, mine would not be freshly simmered and warming it up would also be a little difficult.

    That was so much fun. Why can’t we do this every week? :)

    For good Gloog you need Aquavit in WA you can get Linne which has been over the Equator twice here all you can get is the Danish type booth are flavored with Caraway. We really miss this trip :-(

    Great time – weather cooperated and the snow was surprisingly powdery (although not super deep). A few pics here – http://www.flickr.com/photos/8246712@N03/sets/72157628457672919/with/6526805639/
