Cooked Custard Eggnog

001

So, eggnog isn’t everyone’s bag, baby.  I never experienced this dairy-licious delight until I married a good Midwestern born man.  It’s sweet, creamy…and pretty thick.  If you think that will turn you off, you might wanna move along.

Still here?  Then, enjoy.  We certainly did.
