The Mom Song.... and Yummy cider

In case you haven't seen it yet, here's a song about everything that's truly said in a day in the life of a mom.



-----------------------------------------------

I put together a no-recipe cider for my jewelry party today but it turned out so good that I thought I'd share my no-recipe recipe.

1 bottle cranberry juice
1 bottle apple juice
2 TBS orange juice concentrate
1/2 cup brown sugar

Then I put a coffee filter in the pot and loaded it up with cloves, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice, then ran 4 cups of water through it. It came out a yummy dark spicy water that I added to the liquid mixture. Put it all in the percolator and let it simmer. YUMMMMM!! (I had wanted the spices, but didn't want them floating in my drink and I'm not fancy enough to keep cheesecloth on hand, so this was my substitute and it worked great!)
