A New Book Club

Meggar has (finally) started a book club, although she and Lois have been talking about it for more than a year now! These two AGD friends are also English minors together and have lived through several semesters of classes with Shakespeare, Austen, Dickens, term papers, etc. But there is always time to read more good books--right? Meggar was quite pleased with the turn-out last night. Seven young women came for the first-half discussion of (book-title-which-I-forgot) at Lois' house. Of course, there were treats: Meggar went all out on a new recipe from a blog she follows regularly. I just love the photo of "Handsome Devil" wine bottle...
Chocolate Red Wine Donuts
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. red wine
2 T. corn syrup
3.5 oz. dark chocolate
2 c. pwd sugar
Melt butter and wine over low heat. Then add corn syrup and chocolate and stir until smooth. Remove from heat and whisk in powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time. Spread glaze on warm biscuits. Use for also dipping strawberries or fondue.
Meggar said she quickly fried up a tube of biscuits in deep pan of hot oil. Shown here by cutting out heart shapes for Valentines. She said they were amazing!
