Alas and thank the good Lord, they stopped making it immediately after Christmas. And then! Lo! (and behold!) they sent out a message that they'd be making it for Easter. For Easter only! And then it goes away again!
I was delighted, but also kind of puzzled. Because what does eggnog have to do with Jesus? And then I was like, what does eggnog have to do with anything?
So. So given this small window, I bought as much as I thought we could handle. By we I mostly mean me, because nobody else I live with seems as fixated.
Two gallons of eggnog turns out to be a lot. More than we could handle at once. And we needed to freeze some. And we had these handy freezey containers. That we're no longer using.
And no, I don't know why I'm using the Royal We. I mean I. Me. Or maybe I do mean we. My boobs and I. We. Us.
I hope I've explained myself enough so that you realize that by resourceful I don't mean that
The only logical explanation is Jesus drank eggnog. So people drink eggnog around His birthday. And Easter.ReplyDelete
Turns out there isn't a logical explanation.
This reminds me of the post about breast milk cheese. So, oddly, eggnog has a sister subject. At least in my tired little brain
Yah, logic doesn't really apply to any of this. But you are right, eggnog has a sister subject. Would they be on the same spreadsheet? :) I love your brain.Delete
At least the bags are pretty!ReplyDelete
Those bags are terrific, they really are. I didn't know about them with Jordan because I didn't ever have any extra to freeze.Delete
Thinking about it, eggnog makes a lot more sense for Easter. What with the eggs and all.ReplyDelete
I wonder if you can turn your brilliant stroke of resourcefulness into an eggnog creamcicle otterpop sort of thing?
I didn't even think of it. Of course! All those bunnies making eggs for eggnog!Delete
Truly, I like eggnog best in coffee or with rum or bourbon. It turns out that half-frozen eggnog in a glass with bourbon is very nice. Not that I am on the verge of perfecting it or anything...
I think your resourcefulness should win you some kind of sustainability award at the very least.
Why, thank you! I will see if I can put myself up for an award somewhere. I'd like one!Delete
