It is lovely, Lulu. You can double the amounts so you have a nice pot that will last a couple of days, really warming in the terrible cold you have there now.

Talking of the cold, Earth, it's -5C here, and last night it dipped to -11C! The wife had to go downstairs and get me a couple of hot water bottles.
