The Thedens Tell US About The "Dessert Stomach" (Page Four)
Hans and Kerstin introduced us to a German discovery called "Dessert Stomach". Normally after the Feuerzangenbowle mulled wine consumption slows down, guests fell full! But alas, the kitchen is full of dessert and we must take action! The "Dessert Stomach" worked like magic with everyone returning to the kitchen for their caloric binge!
One has booze in it.... and so does the other!
Thank Kerstin for such a wonderful evening!

Quotation To Remember:
"Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given-when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes." -- Joan Winmill Brown
