I had egg nog for the first time today. I have been scared to try it the past 27 Christmases. It sounds gross and then I looked up what it was and then I was even more disgusted.
Definition: egg nog, is a sweetened dairy-based beverage made with milk, cream, sugar, beaten eggs (which gives it a frothy texture) and flavoured with ground cinnamon and nutmeg.
a) I don't like raw eggs. They can give you salmonella. It's only worth it if it's raw cookie dough.
b) I don't like either nutmeg or cinnamon.
c) I avoid most fatty foods such as cream (when not iced)
But then I found out it was spiked with rum so I had a glass and all the above rules flew out the window.
"Tis the season I guess. There was also ginger bread cookies. I love them. Yummy!
