I just HAD to share this most delightful discovery with whoever-reads-my-blog! Josh and I have been on the lookout for a special sip-as-you-work/talk/sit/play drink. Something finer than juice, less commonplace than hot chocolate, healthier than pop... Something I can make with ingredients I have on hand.
And, ladies and gents, I have discovered it! A simple recipe for eggnog that is truly delicious, uses ingredients we have on hand (including eggs which are fresh from our chickens!), and is that 'something special'.
2 egg yolks
2 cups milk
1/6 c sugar
2 egg whites, beaten stiff
Beat the first 5 ingredients in a blender while beating the egg whites separately. Pour over the egg whites, stir gently, and pour into a glass.
And, remembering my sis-in-love (Breanne)'s injunction to 'make it beautiful', I sprinkled a dash of nutmeg over top.
Isn't that delightful??! :-D
Oh, look at that! Pictures of the two cutest children ever. Imagine that... ;-)
