Most Favoritest Time of the Year

Sunday, November 05, 2006
Well, we've officially entered my "most favoritest time of the year". I'm not talking about the Christmas season, Thanksgiving, or even the six months of rain that have just started here in Oregon. Neither am I talking about the falling of the leaves (beautiful though it may be), the school year (started months ago) or the election season.

I'm talking about the time of year when I can go to the supermarket at buy eggnog.

You see, since I was a wee lad, I've loved eggnog and, growing up, I've been constantly stymied by the fact that this delicious dairy treat is only seemingly available in November and December. Furthermore, it's the only way that *I* know about (when combined with brandy) to get mildly drunk while consuming about 4,000 calories per drink. Others may come close, but there's no substitute for the real eggnog.

So hear this: When I rule the world, eggnog will be commercially available year round!

6 eggs
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 quart milk
1/3 pint heavy whipping cream
1 pinch ground nutmeg
1 pinch salt
Beat eggs; mix in condensed milk, vanilla, quart of milk and salt.
Beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form. Fold in to egg and milk mixture and sprinkle with nutmeg. Serve chilled.

this is much richer than the crap from the carton... but oh so gooder.

I've always felt the same way about Cadbury Cream Eggs. Nothing to do with childhood memories, just a sick desire for creamy chocolatey goodness of unknown and questionable ingredients. As a practicing non-christian, it's the only reason I have to look forward to Easter.
