See you on Monday!

I’m so embarrassed. Having just returned from two months abroad, I completely forgot that Thanksgiving is this week. People keep calling to wish me a happy t-day and I’m thinking they are rushing things because Thanksgiving is on Sunday. But no, I’m wrong. It’s like tomorrow.

With that being said, I’ll resume posting on Monday, November 26th with more discounts from our sponsors, a few home tours and interviews, and other goodies so stay tuned. Enjoy your family time and remember, egg nog isn’t half as good without rum.

2 oz light rum (or more, you little devil, you.)
6 oz milk
1 tsp powdered sugar
1 whole egg

Shake all ingredients (except nutmeg) with ice and strain into a pretty glass. Sprinkle nutmeg on top and serve. Need I say more?

    Mmm, sounds *very* tempting, but I’m always afraid of eating raw eggs. In Russian (and I’m from Russia), egg nog is called Gogol-Mogol, which is pretty funny.

    Hehe, gogol-mogol. Quite hilarious.

    This is so funny that I read this post today: Yesterday (I work at a cafe in Peterborough, ON) I was talking to my manager/friend about egg nogg recipes! We are making egg nog lattes, and chai nogg lattes at work and I was wanting to try and make some at home.

    Merci for this sweeeeet recipe!

    I will have to pass this one along. My new fun holiday favorite..SOY NOG! A bit less of a guilty pleasure and more animal friendly!

    Holly, what’s that print in the photo? I’m sure I recognise it and will kick myself when you tell me! Thanks.

    Nevermind! It’s one of Camilla’s! Lovely to see prints ‘in situ’ – think I might snap one up myself.
