It’s a dark, rainy Sunday, although it could be any day of the week, I’m on vacation and barely aware of what day it is. Moe and I are having a cozy couch day watching Harry Potter movies. I swear he was actually watching for a while, but then the call of the cat nap was stronger than the call to defeat Voldemort. A kitty’s got priorities.

I didn’t have any ginger to grate so I added extra candied ginger. I found they needed the full 20 minutes in my oven.

The result – simply delicious, warm and comforting with a cup of coffee, kitty, and The Half Blood Prince.
