Good morning Friends!
Today is Monday December 24th;
National Egg Nog Day
Here is an Egg Nog Recipe if you choose to leave the Rum out - I"m with you on that.
- Combine milk, cloves, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and cinnamon in a saucepan, and heat over lowest setting for 5 minutes. Slowly bring milk mixture to a boil.
- In a large bowl, combine egg yolks and sugar. Whisk together until fluffy. ...
- Stir in rum, cream, 2 teaspoon vanilla, and nutmeg. Refrigerate overnight before serving.
No matter how you are celebrating the holidays this year I hope you are warm, safe, and surrounded by people you love. If you are struggling this time of year - please reach out. Don't be alone. There are numerous shelters and churches offering drop in meals and support.
This is my year to pack my children up and send them along to their father's on Christmas Eve. Not having the kids here on Christmas Eve and especially Christmas Morning is emotionally challenging. It takes a lot of work on acceptance to not let feelings of self pity run away on me. I will get them back tomorrow at 1:00 and they will come home and I'll make them a special Turkey dinner and we will open gifts and have hours of joy together. Anyways I know I'm not alone and lots of other parents are doing the same thing today. Patience, tolerance and love.
I am truly blessed and have had an amazing year. Thanks to everyone who has supported my blogging efforts, it is really something I love doing.
