    Ina, thanks for the tip. I think I'll try my hand at making some again this year, and use extra eggs in it. LOL I remember the good old days when I tried everything I could think of to gain weight! Oddly enough, I don't seem to have that "problem" anymore. :D

    I've never tried eggnog with alcohol in it, since drinking has never been my thing, but I used to like family friendly eggnog. For the past several years, I have not though. Pretty much every Christmas season, I try it at one place or another, and sometimes my wife makes it, but I don't much care for it anymore.

    That is one thing I don't care for also...I don't like milky type products and I don't drink any alcohol....so no eggnog for me!

    I don't think I've had a drink since moving to Fresno....maybe a couple of times but now because of the fact that I haven't had any alcohol in so long I'm afraid one sip will do me in.:)

    I like eggnog. For some reason, it was a tradition at my house when I was growing up. Daddy made it with raw eggs on Christmas morning and we never got sick from them. Now you wouldn't dare make it with raw eggs. We children were given a sip before he put the brandy in it. When I drink it now, I put 3 ounces of moonshine in a quart. It makes it taste good but it's not enough alcohol to make us intoxicated.

    It seems the holidays really zipped by this year. I can't believe I didn't even have any egg nog. That's really unusual for me, since I enjoy the taste. I might have to make a small batch for myself, since I doubt there's any left in the stores by now.

    When I went to Kroger's they had all of their eggnog marked down for clearance; so this might be the best time for you to get some and get it really cheap, @Diane Lane .
    Last year, they had eggnog ice cream, and candy cane (peppermint) ice cream for the holidays, and all of that was on clearance after New Years , too.
    I looked for some fruit cake; but they must have sold every last one of those because I didn't find any.

    I have already been out several times this week, and am trying to limit the use of my car, so I probably won't get back to the store before they run out, unfortunately. On the up side, though, at least I can hunker down here until the temperatures warm up. I've been looking around for a good non-alcoholic recipe, and this one looks nice. Some of the recipes I've found didn't cook the eggs, but i'd rather mine be cooked, and this one uses milk, which I have here, rather than heavy cream. I also have half and half, so I could use that instead. http://www.asweetpeachef.com/drinks/non-alcoholic-eggnog/ I don't have anything against alcoholic eggnog, but I don't have any of what's required in @Lara Moss's recipe.

    Guess What!!! I just learned distilled alcohol has ZERO Carbs and ZERO Sugar. So that includes Brandy (and Bourbon Whiskey Tequila Rum Vodka) that you use in egg nog. Egg nog cream in the carton is 34 grams of carbs and sugar is 21 grams....but I use 1/2 C (or 2 jiggers) of Unsweetened Unflavored Almond Milk instead of eggnog which has 1 carb and ZERO sugar! I use the Whole Foods 365 brand (2carbs for 1C and 0sugar). Other brands vary. And nutmeg is ZERO! I also use ice.

    The distillation process eliminates the carbs and sugar. The only caveat is that I add Creme de Cacao which has like 20 grams of carbs in a jigger so I need to find an alternative for that or eliminate it. Or factor it in to my daily carb intake….but then I don't do this daily! haha.

    I hope this news doesn't turn anyone into an alcoholic. Remember that too much alcohol will destroy your liver (no more than 1 drink per day). Most of us drink on rare occasions like eggnog at Christmas.

    haha…I think that just might be the weirdest video I've ever seen lol…but oddly enough it's on-topic.

    Maybe it's oddly on-topic because it follows an odd post :rolleyes:
