Happy pomander....

C for cloves and cinnamon
C for color
C for cool bauble

My little castle in Spain enters a joyous Christmas mood with pomanders, oranges from our beautiful Lecrin valley, a few chocolate coins wrapped in golden paper. Next week, Monchéri will start some baking. And I'm more than willing to spend my spare time making more pomanders.

Have a very happy week end !

Beautiful, Lala!

I just bought some gold coins to scatter about, and now you've inspired me to make some pomanders.
It's been years since I've pressed those cloves in oranges.

Jjj

Ow! I made one of those years ago- it took my fingers a long time to become normal again. They are wonderful and last a very long time however so it may be worth it- I don't know how you can make more than one in a season! Super fingers!

What a surreal two part evening that was last night, I can’t believe I went from the grunge of the Harley chapter Christmas heavy metal gig in a room small enough to be a lounge. (It reminded me off all those concerts I went to in the 90’s and ruptured my ear drums!) Followed by, part two, in Gym’s bohemian sandpit bar with the Blues band.
The bizarre-ness was even more highlighted by the experience of the matching of faces to the blogging personas of you and of course Tim Irving, Lala you are as delicate as a small bird.

The extraordinary bar I told Tim about in Granada is here; www.elbolichegranada.com and the great restaurant that does the Sabor del Meditarraneo en los fogones de nuestro Maestro Arrocero is called Maese Pio on the Placeta del Pulgar junto Plaza san Augustin. See you there one night I hope.

I was going to fill a large silveer punch bowl with oranges and evergreens for my dining table centerpiece. I think I will mix in a few of these clove studded pomanders as well. Thanks for the inspiration!
