RECIPE - RED WINE THYME SPAGHETTI

Hi everyone,

as it's Sunday (funday) I though to try out a recipe, which I've seen in soooo many tutorials on different channels and magazines/books but never ever tried it out - until now: Red Wine Spaghetti, which I scented with fresh thyme (as thyme is my fav' absolutely fav' herb on earth!):


Ingredients:

1-2 portions uncooked spaghetti 
1 bottle red wine (0.25l)
1-2 glass of still fresh water
1 clove of garlic
1 small french onion
1-3 thyme branches
1 tsp. rapeseed oil


Steps:

1. Cut the garlic clove and french onion into small squares/pieces.
2. Pour the 2 glasses of fresh water (if you're tap water is good quality you can use it too:)), red wine into the pan.
3. Add the fine cut onion, garlic glove with the thyme and let it start boiling.
4. Add the uncooked spaghetti into the boiling red wine brew and stir it, let it cook until it's "Al dente".
5. Serve it, with a hint of rapeseed oil and decorate it with a fresh thyme.
6. Bon Appétit


I've not know, that a simple spaghetti dish can turn into a unique flavour with red wine, this is absolutely an idea for a new years eve dinner too! 

Yours,

WELEDA - COMFY PRE-CHRISTMAS RELAXING SPA*

Hi guys,

I've been using the Weleda Pomegranate shower cream* quite a few times since I've received a lovely christmas-gift set* and would like to show you, how to create the perfect pre-christmas no-stress/stress relief night bath spa atmosphere:


First of all, prepare all products you'll need during your stay in a warm/hot bath for about 20-30min.:

1 glass of sparkling water (optional: cucumber water, wine, iced winter tea)
Intimate Wash Gel
1 scented candle (I've used a winter scented one - try to use a pomegranate or spice one)
1 radio/ipad/iphone (NOT directly at the bath tub:) just to make sure you have your fav' christmas album playing)
1 body lotion of your choice or Weleda 



I really would recommend you to try a day after a a stressful pre-christmas shopping day/school/work or before your actual christmas vacation trip to chill for a half hour in your bath tub and feeling that christmas is coming, but in a more relax way than usual.

Yours,
